Jenna and Jared celebrated their love with friends and family at the gorgeous Norman Bird Sanctuary in Middletown, RI. Although the threat of severe storms loomed all morning, the weather held out for their first look, photos and ceremony. About 10 mins after the close of their ceremony the sky erupted in a downpour. Guests stayed dry under the tent while the bridal party enjoyed drinks and appetizers inside. The rain slowed to a drizzle for the reception and the party was FIRE. Everyone had a blast! From the surprise choreographed first dance to the hilarious speeches this wedding couldn't have been more perfect!
I love it when departed loved ones make it known that they are there. Right before the ceremony began and huge hawk swooped over the ceremony site and roosted in a tree looking over the guests. He flew off and a monarch butterfly made its way over the ceremony space. Even during photos we caught a monarch perfectly poised in one of the photos <3
Congrats to Jenna and Jared! It was a pleasure to be able to capture your day!
