chelsea + steven || glen manor house || portsmouth, rhode island

Hello there!!

I have another beautiful wedding to share!

Chelsea and Steven had their ceremony and reception at the gorgeous Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. I just love this property.

These two were very laid-back and definitely not caught up in any wedding hysteria. As a matter of fact, Chelsea just waved to Steven in the window as they pulled in to the estate and started chatting. They did take care of their final touches across the hall from one another….

dress, hair, flowers…….love it all!

We started with some formal bridal party pics in the garden, I’m a big fan of the patterned bridesmaid dresses.

Just a few minutes in and it started to rain – boo! No worries, there is a beautiful porch where we did some more pictures.

The groomsmen each had a custom tie based on their own interests…planes, cameras, hops… 🙂

So, Steven is a big fan of cameras, lenses, and photography in general. You know you have an aficionado when they are watching the aperture get bigger and smaller as you are taking their picture! This was the 1.2 one, Steven!

A little while later it started straight up POURING…..of course right as the guests were arriving. Chelsea’s brother got totally soaked helping everyone get inside.

The rooms inside are so pretty….not too shabby of a second choice for a ceremony!

Married!

Steven did all the illustrations for their centerpieces. They had a custom-made crossword on the back of the program, and play-doh at each table. Awesome!

Anyone who knows me knows how food obsessed I can be….check out this spread! They had several different stations….ahi tuna & avocado salad, pulled pork dim-sum, wasabi mussels…..YUM!!!

After dinner we decided to stroll down to the water for a few more pictures outside.

Inside, their guests were being fiercely competitive with the Play-Doh creations!!

    Nancy,
    You did a remarkable job at Steven and Chelsea’s wedding. The awful weather and myriad changes that had to occur never caused as much as a “what!!!” from you. Thanks for creating the pictures to remember this wonderful event.ReplyCancel
