Alex & Ryan
Sometimes I get lucky! This OceanCliff Newport wedding is one such occasion.
Alex & Ryan were originally planning a Montreal wedding, but then changed plans so that their families could join them without leaving their native US. They changed the wedding venue and country but stuck with their original choice of photographer. That’d be me! So it turned into a destination wedding for me.
The new venue was the absolutely stunning OceanCliff close to Newport, New Jersey. You’ll see from the photos just how picturesque the area is. I felt like I was on some kinda movie set half the time!
Being back in Rhode Island meant I also got to catch up with an old friend who visited Chester when I was a teenager, Bethany. We had dinner the night before the wedding and it was great to catch up.
Alex & Ryan were amazing to share the wedding day with. Relaxed and ready for a fun day, going out of their way to make sure we had time for some really fantastic photos. They began the day at the Viking Hotel in Newport before jumping on a bus with the bridal party for photos and then heading to OceanCliff. The weather was perfect and the party was rocking til the early hours. My kinda wedding!
Big thanks to my pal James Correia for travelling from Toronto to shoot this one with me. He even shared a flight with Mike Tyson!
Enjoy the photos…
