Please note that despite Rhode Island entering a modified phase 3, we are limiting guest numbers until further notice, and we are not offering photography for inside locations!


We are experiencing too many weddings that are presenting difficulties and challenges with guests not wearing masks or face coverings and not respecting the 6 ft distancing requirements and we are re-evaluating how we are going to proceed. For new bookings, we will be performing elopements only and limiting numbers to the couple and a very small number of witnesses.


We don’t want to be the bad guys at what should be a joyous occasion, or having guests argue and confront us over virus hoaxes and fake news concerning mask wearing and distancing requirements. We are also having to deal with guests from hotspot states who don't tell us, don't seem to be concerned about spreading this virus, and that the rules don't apply to them because they feel fine.
