Belle Mer

Today, I’m taking you behind the lens to share the enchanting story of Samantha and Benjamin, a couple whose love story is as captivating as the luxurious setting of their wedding at Belle Mer. From college acquaintances to soulmates, their journey to the altar is a testament to the unexpected twists and turns of love.

Belle Mer

A Fateful Reconnection

Imagine this: two college students, immersed in their worlds at Wentworth in Boston. Benjamin, the computer science whiz and hockey player, and Samantha, the construction management guru and lacrosse star, shared mutual friends but never really connected. That is until the Patriots clinched their fifth Super Bowl win, and Boston was abuzz with celebrations. Amidst the cold, snowy backdrop of New England, Ben reached out to Sam, sparking a conversation that would lead them to their first date. It’s funny how a simple message can set the stage for a lifetime together, isn’t it?

Choosing Belle Mer: A Dream Venue

When it came to their wedding, Samantha and Benjamin wanted a venue that mirrored the elegance and depth of their journey. Enter Belle Mer: a venue that exudes modern luxury with its sleek lines, stunning ocean views, and manicured gardens. Nestled in the heart of Newport, Rhode Island, Belle Mer was the perfect canvas for their summer wedding, blending the natural beauty of the coast with the sophistication they envisioned for their big day.

Why Belle Mer?

Choosing Belle Mer wasn’t just about the breathtaking scenery; it was about finding a place that felt like them. The venue’s blend of contemporary elegance and waterfront serenity spoke to their hearts, promising a celebration that would be as memorable as their love story.

The Wedding Day Unfolds

The big day was nothing short of spectacular, with every detail meticulously planned to reflect Samantha and Benjamin’s personalities and love story. From the early morning excitement to the exchange of heartfelt vows against the backdrop of the ocean, every moment was infused with meaning and beauty.

A Ceremony by the Water

As a photographer, capturing the ceremony at Belle Mer was a dream. The way the sunlight danced on the water, the gentle sea breeze, and the love radiating from Samantha and Benjamin made every shot a masterpiece. It was one of those moments where you can’t help but feel the magic in the air.

Reception Under the Stars

The reception was where Belle Mer’s elegance truly shone. The sophisticated decor, the gourmet dining experience, and the laughter and dance that filled the night created an atmosphere of joy and celebration. Capturing the smiles, the tears, and the dance moves was a reminder of why I love what I do.

Capturing Love at Belle Mer

Photographing Samantha and Benjamin’s wedding was an honor and a joy. From the intimate moments of anticipation to the grand celebrations, every aspect of their day highlighted the love they share and the stunning setting of Belle Mer. As a photographer, my goal was to capture the essence of their day, and Belle Mer provided the perfect backdrop for their love story to unfold.

Memorable Moments

One of my favorite shots was their first look. The anticipation in Benjamin’s eyes and the radiant smile on Samantha’s face as they saw each other for the first time that day was pure magic. Another unforgettable moment was their first dance, where the world seemed to fade away, leaving just the two of them, lost in their love.
