natalie + jt get married! ~ block island, ri

Yeay! Another wedding where I know half the family! Natalie was a bridesmaid (and cousin) for Erin & Nate's wedding last year and I was so happy when she got in touch when she and JT got engaged.

The wedding took place on Block Island, RI - a little pork chop shaped island 11 miles out to sea off the coast of New England. Natalie's family has been vacationing here forever and it took about 5 minutes off the ferry to see why. My best friend and fellow photographer Sarah Babcock came with me to assist and enjoy the island a bit before leaving.

I've said it a million times, but I can't stress enough the value of a great coordinator. Such a person is Mona Dwyer Helterline. We loved her from minute one when she took us for a tour of the island so we knew all the fabulous spots for photos on the wedding day right down the flawless execution of the wedding day schedule at the Spring House. All. Stress. Free. Having never been to the island before, she was a godsend.

Natalie and JT have been together for ten years and we loved spending the day with them, especially their portrait session when we rambled around the island by ourselves taking photos on the bluffs and the lighthouse. It was a fun little escape before the party. We really had a great time and there are so many images, I'm just going to get back to the editing now. But I wanted to get some of these up here in the meantime!

More to come. :)
