It’s a new year, which means it’s a great time to recharge from the holidays and catch up on some blogging! As I reflect on this past fall/winter, I’m thankful for all the special moments we got to capture and be a part of. Chelsea and Matthew’s intimate wedding day was certainly a highlight! Chelsea and Matthew committed their lives to each other on September 29th, among close family and friends at Sylvan Ridge Winery. I may be biased (because my husband used to work at a winery), but I absolutely love winery weddings. There’s something so romantic about a backdrop of rolling vineyards, especially on a fall day!
Looking back on their special day, Chelsea and Matthew were in great spirits all day long. They were entirely present that day, and their positive energy was contagious! It was so fun to witness them laughing with their loved ones and interacting with each other. They have beautiful chemistry with each other, which made photographing them such a joy!
Chelsea and Matthew met three years ago, at a social event in their apartment complex. They immediately hit if off and have been together ever since! Flash forward: in June of 2018, Matthew proposed to Chelsea during a romantic walk on the beach in Newport. “…we were talking about the time we’ve spent together and how Matt feels like he’s entering a new part of his life. I turn around, and he’s on his knee!” Chelsea recalled. They planned their wedding day for just a few months later, and it was absolutely perfect.
We had a great time capturing Chelsea and Matthew’s wedding day and getting to know their close family and friends. We especially loved how relaxed and intimate their special day was–it was the perfect way to wrap up our crazy September! They were also such a wonderful couple to work with. I am constantly reminded that we have some of the best clients in the world, and these two were no exception.
So without further ado, here are some of our favorite images from their special day. We hope these images reflect the love and joy that we witnessed on that beautiful day.
Congratulations, you two!
