Sara & Matt were married on Naragansett Bay in Rhode Island during Hurricane Hanna. I silently hummed the Scorpions while mounting two flashes in the corners of the dance floor, crossing my fingers they wouldn’t be battered by the wind (Apparently I needed to do more than that. I found them on the ground multiple times, despite 25lb sandbags and a ridiculous amount of gaffers tape). The day started out innocently though, with the eye of the storm keeping us half dry for the ceremony, cocktail hour and through the start of their clambake dinner. By the time the wind and rain resumed we were dancing too hard to care. These are my kind of people.
With friends Hannah and Leslie before the ceremony.
The lady responsible for bringing all of us together, Jess from Fig and Plum, with her man Chris. They have the adorable expressions down pat.
Friends having fun with the bouquet…
Coffee awaits in the dinner tent.
They donated to Save the Bay in lieu of favors.
Embarrassing toasts are the best
Best name ever.
The bouquet eating man moves onto lobster.
I need a fitting caption for this one. Any takers?
the dancing begins!
and to prove this was really happening during a hurricane:
It was hard to tell what was wet and what was sweat.
Congratulations to Sara & Matt, whose wedding I will not soon forget. I felt so at home with their families and friends. Perhaps we can do it all over again next year? Please?
