The art of visual storytelling is why I fell in love with photography. Over the years, I have had the privilege of telling many stories - tales of love, marriage, travel, new life and family dynamics, culminating in a visual collection that is this blog. I invite and encourage you to get lost in these stories and delve into this visual narrative of life!

Waterfront Destination Wedding in Newport, Rhode Island

2/13/18

 

Some girls dream about their wedding day, down to every last detail: what’s they’ll wear, how their hair will look, what their groom will look like, etc. I don’t know if Sheila envisioned any of these details when she was younger, but what she did know was that she would be married at a very special place, near and dear to her heart. Sheila’s family has been coming to Newport, Rhode Island for decades so the destination is steeped in beautiful and fond memories for her. Her mother and her talked about how when the time came for her big day, she would be married at Castle Hill Inn, overlooking the water. Even after moving away from the East Coast to pursue med school and after having to say an untimely goodbye to her mother when she passed away, Sheila continued to hold tight to her memories of this idyllic seaside town.

Thousands of miles away, while traveling abroad shortly after college, Dan sat in Park Guell in Barcelona, envisioning his future and what it might hold. Little did he know that many years later, he would return to this same bench and propose to his future wife.

Sheila and Daniel were married on a gorgeous early fall day in Newport, Rhode Island.  Underneath a beautiful floral arch, seated around a decadent Sofreh while sailboats leisurely floated by as the waves rolled up against the rocky cliffs at Castle Hill Inn, the couple exchanged vows in a beautiful Persian Wedding Ceremony. It was exactly as Sheila and her mom had envisioned it all those many many years ago…
