Real Wedding : a pseudo-destination wedding in Newport, RI

Today's bride and groom {Caren and Patrick} chose to have their wedding in Newport, RI because they wanted a pseudo-destination wedding...a weekend where we could spend a good deal of time with our closest friends and family. Such a great idea - and it definitely worked because many of their guests have already planned another visit to Newport. And, I just love the gift the bride gave to her fiance {as they are both avid basebal fans} -  cufflinks that were fashioned from authentic wood from the seating in the old yankee stadium. The beautiful photographs were submitted to me by Chris of Armor and Martel Photo.



Thank you so much Chris for sharing this beautiful Newport wedding with my readers today. To see more from Armor and Martel - please visit their blog.
