We don’t often get intimate Newport weddings. There are a lot of grand 100+ people events and we love them! Newport also is home to some personal intimate weddings with just the couples closest friends and family. There’s something for everyone. Today’s wedding is one of those intimate affairs where the pictures will make you want to un-invite all your work friends and run away with just your besties and your family.
“Michael and I grew up in neighboring towns but did not meet until the summer after high school. That summer we swam, boated, climbed rocks, lay in the sun, and fell in love. We have been together ever since. We are both from small North Shore towns, and have always been ocean people. We visited Newport and Castle Hill Inn the summer before we were married there and were enchanted with the place. We sat for hours in the Adirondack chairs, sipping on cocktails and staring out at the beautiful view. The ocean backdrop was the ideal location for our intimate family wedding.”
Tasha and Michael just hired their wonderful photographer Brit Perkins Photography for some pre-event pictures and the ceremony and formals. We actually kind of love that their reception was just them and their guests. It’s like a mysterious secret party that will forever remain in their hearts and minds with no photographic proof of the magic that happened. Magic exists, and sometimes, it slips away just perfectly.
