Newport, Rhode Island Destination Wedding : Ruohan + Di : Colt State Park and Private Residence : Part 1

Who has spring fever?  Raise your hands….I just did, how about you?  Well today the sun was shining and the snow is nearly gone (amazingly enough), and I want to share with you a wedding from the warmer months of last year that Paul + I fotographed in Newport, RI!

You might remember this cute couple from a few posts backs from their Love Shoot.  Ruohan + Di are some of the sweetest people you’d ever want to meet, and it we had such a magical day with them.  The day started very early, with Ruohan getting ready at the historic and beautiful Bilmore Hotel in Providence, RI.  Ruohan + Di decided they wanted to see each other for a private moment before the ceremony, so we choose a rooftop of the Bilmore with it’s awesome cityscape view as the place for them to see each other for the first time on their wedding day.  They were so thrilled to see each other, it so was amazing to be there to capture that moment for them!  As customary to the Chinese tradition, the couple was escorted together to the ceremony along with the bridal party and their parents.  We decided to ride with them as well, so we could stay together for the whole day of fun that was planned.  First it was off to the ceremony site, the lovely Colt State Park in Bristol, RI, with views overlooking the ocean!  It was a perfect day for an outdoor ceremony; beautiful blue skies and the sunshine warming everyone’s faces.  Everyone was so excited and the energy was contagious!  Di wrote the vows, which were very sweet and poetic.  You could tell by watching that this was the happiest day of their lives!

Ruohan shares with us:

“We both love to live our lives simple and sweet, and that’s what we wanted for our wedding as well. We only gave ourselves 6 months, which means we had to move fast. A small wedding near the ocean is what we want. The Colt State Park in RI has this perfect outdoor white chapel near the waters, but it was only available on Sept 5th, so that is our wedding date. Another important thing for us is the photography, we both appreciate the arts and we wanted to capture our day in beautiful photographs. As soon as we visited Studio Foto’s blog, we knew Paul and Krystal are THE ONE for our wedding. They did excellent job. XOXO…”

Thanks Ruohan… are such a perfect couple for us too!   Thank you for having us  :  )

Stay tuned….part 2 of the sweet wedding will be coming up tomorrow!!!
