kristen & mike || wedding at hotel viking, newport (part 1 of 2)
Yay! The first wedding of 2012! I was super excited to see Kristen and Mike after our their fun engagement session in Boston last summer... I knew it would be a great day, especially if their family and friends were as amazing as Kristen & Mike, and I wasn't wrong! A bit chilly on the waterfront in April, but that didn't stop us from heading to the Cliff Walk and Ocean Drive for some photos. Hotel Viking itself is also a beautiful, grand backdrop for an elegant wedding like Kristen & Mike's. And did I mention that Kristen designed all the printed materials for the wedding? So many pretty details, I love it!
Also, my friend/second shooter Heidi was along with me on this one - and she got married at Hotel Viking as well! So, happy memories all around. :)

The jewelry and rings details! The left bottom shot includes Kristen's design.
I love the moment when the veil goes on - it just makes everything more real. These are a few candid ones of Kristen right after.
Gorgeous flowers! I couldn't stop with these.
Heidi was with Mike and his parents while I was with Kristen, so she got these next few details shots and Mike getting ready.
Thanks to Heidi for getting the center image of Kristen and her dad walking down the aisle.
I love Kay Chapel! So pretty.
