Lori and Joe’s Newport Rhode Island Wedding at the Oceancliff

If you want to have perfect weather for your wedding, you should ask Lori what she prayed for specifically, because I don’t think a more perfect weather day exists. From the ceremony to the sailing trip, the day was exactly as one would dream of. First we started the day off in a beautiful house that Lori ordered up just for lovely photos, which I love. Next we headed to the Ocean Cliff where the two were married overlooking the ocean. Lori came down the aisle laughing, in her unforgettable way and they both read their vows from an Apple device: Joe had an iPad and Lori had her iPhone. The clouds came over the ceremony and created great light and just as they kissed, the clouds moved and it was bright again. It was a photography miracle. If you are a photographer yourself, you will understand. Thanks God!

The reception had some funny moments and even a group line dance to Steve Earle’s “Copperhead Road.” Joe cried during the first dance, and so did his mom during hers. It was like mother like son. After the reception a few of the guests headed over to the harbor where we boarded a sailing ship and enjoyed a sunset cruise to close out the night. The sunset was stunning… as it always is and we even passed the Ocean Cliff on our trip. We had been looking forward to this wedding all year and it did not disappoint.

Hey there!

This is a photo of me in a burger bar in Stockholm Sweden. I am about to drink the best beer I have ever had. It's a pretty important photo of me. I just remember feeling filled with joy and so so glad to be alive. That's a good place to start on getting to know me.


I like to travel.

I like beer.

I like the person who was across the table from me. Any guesses who?

where we hang
