Lea and Neil at Castle Hill Inn, Part One / Newport Wedding Photographer

Posted by Trish: Photos by Melissa and Trish

Well, this was a long time coming and I was really looking forward to seeing Lea and Neil again, but for their own wedding! I photographed both of Neil's sisters weddings a while ago and I secretly always hoped that Lea would call me when it was their turn at the alter. So I was excited to hear from Lea when she got engaged and to get the chance to photograph this family one last time!

Lea loves the beach and had a fabulous seaside theme going on.

What fabulous wedding hair, it was the perfect choice!

Gina from 2Shine gave Lea some amazing bridal make-up!

It's always a surreal moment when the bride actually is wearing her dress, not just trying it on.

Lea headed out to the garden for some photos before the ceremony.

She like one of the flowers in the garden here.

Speaking of flowers, these were awesome! by Sayles Livingston.

She really makes a beautiful bride! See what I mean about the veil, it makes you a bride and completes the look!

Neil went out to the garden for a few photos too, but they opted not to see each other before the wedding. Sometimes it works out just as well that way. How adorable is Neil?!

Lea is also an avid collector of sea glass and even has a big bucket in her trunk for her beach finds. You can't go wrong with sea glass! I wish I had thought to wear my seas glass bracelet.

This is about as Newport as it gets.

Kids is coming down the isle is always a crap shoot. Some kids bask in the glory of all the people watching them and others freak out. We had a combo here.

Waiting for the ladies...

The big moment for Lea and her Dad, finally!!!

They had a gorgeous summer day, perfect for a wedding!

I do. Do you? So do I.

A classic bridal pose, although totally un-posed during the ceremony.

Off tot he garden for a few minutes alone...with the photographers and video. We like to be romantic.

Neil is looking pretty happy here, so awesome!

'We did it!"

At this point the veil had blown off, but Lea was all set with it anyway, kind of long and hard to manage.

I love that green lattice, so Castle Hill!
