The Kennedys: A Belle Mer Wedding | Newport Photographer


Billy and Kelly. Belle Mer. 

There really are no words needed after that. Their wedding was a party, an elegant, delicious, gorgeous party with the BEST cake topper ever created in the history of ever. 

At a beautiful beach side rental in Middletown, Kelly and her ladies got ready upstairs while the boys played a game of topless Polish horseshoes. The weather was perfect for some good yard games. It was the perfect day for a wedding. 

Their first look is a reason I will always recommend it to our couples. After seeing his gorgeous bride for the first time in her breathtaking wedding gown, Billy was able to relax with Kelly while they took portraits and family photos. They had time to unwind and relax between the photo portion of our afternoon and the ceremony. They were able to enjoy the cocktail hour in nearly its entirety. 

Their first dance was so incredible. DJ Frank Baptista Jr. had all of their guests crowd around the dance floor and stay there from their introduction into the Island House and during their first dance. When their guests were invited to join in, they all did. The party didn't stop there. With poignant toasts, including one by the maid of honor about PSI (so appropriate for the year we New England fans have had) and one of the most gorgeous sunsets Goat Island has ever seen, it was a perfect day, start to finish.
