Melissa and Eric ~ A Dreamy and Elegant Wedding at Gurney’s in Newport, RI


This fun loving couple was so thrilled to plan a wedding that not only celebrated their marriage but also their amazing family and friends. We heard so many times during planning our shoot that what was most important to them was being surrounded by their loved ones and that everyone have a relaxed and fun day. It’s so wonderful to watch this highlights and see that their wedding was an undeniable success!

We started our day with the ladies putting n their final touches. Can we talk about Melissas dress? A stunning fishtail, pearled and beaded gown with the perfect studded shoes to match! The reaction of her bridesmaids said it all, “So Beautiful!”. Even better was the first look she had with her father. A teary eyed “wow”, what more could a bride want!

Just before the First Look, Eric was busy finishing up his prep as well. Fastening the buttons of his suspenders and clasping on his cufflinks just before going off to see his bride. A handful of guests at the resort were lucky to see this sweet moment unfold as Melissa and Eric saw each other for the first time. Through a beaming smile we can hear Eric say, “You made me cry”.

Following the First Look, they headed to the ceremony. The stunning floral design on the chuppah was made even more beautiful by the inclusion of Melissas grandfather’s talis, he had passed some years before and was very special to the bride.

After the exchange of vows and rings and the smashing of the glass there was time for cocktail hour. LoveLocked Films had so much fun capturing the gorgeous details in the reception hall including the adorable cake topper in the likeness of Melissa and Eric holding their team football helmets! (Go Pats!)

The reception continued in the main ballroom with wonderful toasts and dancing! We love a good Hora and you will see how much fun this one was with Eric, Melissa and their parents up the air above the crowd with wide smiles. The night continued with dancing and food and laughter as the band played on.

Melissa and Eric, thank you again for allowing us to be part of your incredibly fun wedding! We hope you enjoy sharing this highlights with the family and friends who mean so much to you.

Thank you also to Lisa Rigby for the beautiful cover photo!
