Erica & Jared | Omni Providence Hotel Wedding (The Westin Hotel Providence)

Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing Erica and Jared’s wedding. It was truly a pleasure from beginning to end! I started with Erica at her parent’s house and I honestly wish that I could become a member of their family. She has the best family ever! They all have such kind, caring and respectful relationships! When I arrived, her mother was waiting for me and had all of her details out and ready for me!When Erica and her girls returned from the salon, they added a few minor touches and then were ready for the dress!Erica’s mother and childhood best friend helped her with it all!These cuties are Jared’s nieces…they are twins and full of personality!Once everyone was ready we headed outside for some pictures…Erica and all of her girls were gorgeous!! Such a stunning bridal party!I met the guys at the church and they were just hanging out on the Buzzbus when I arrived.
We stepped outside for a few pictures before it was time to greet people for the ceremony.Erica arrived with time to spare:)! The fabulous mother’s of the bride and groom with their sons!After the ceremony we zipped over to the State House for some pictures – our time was limited but we worked well under the gun:)!The left picture is the product of a Pinterest request! Erica loved it!After pictures, we scooted right over to the Omni Providence Hotel – which was named the Westin Providence when Erica booked it!The room was STUNNING. Period. The uplighting, candles and fabulous centerpieces made it magical!Erica and Jared’s friends and family were so much fun – great entrances that were so full of energy:)!
That included, Erica and Jared’s entrance too! I like to include a little sprinkling of the reception main events in the preview – before ending with some party pictures:)!This wedding has PLENTY of party pictures:)! It was a wild-dancing bunch:)!!There was even a hint of dancing “spin-the-bottle”!Erica and Jared had a photo-booth outside the room. I was able to sneak my camera in to get a couple pictures of them when they were in the booth!During the last song, Erica and Jared asked everyone to join in with them…at that moment, Jared lifted Erica and spun her around – it was to Dirty Dancing’s, “I’ve had the Time of my Life”….it was just perfect! The final snap at the end of the night – with a little assist from Erica’s father:)! He literally parted the seas around them, so that there was an open view of them as the song ended….it was so cute to see him come out of nowhere and be so attentive at the end of a long and fabulous day – Go Erica’s Dad!!

Erica and Jared – Congratulations to you AND to your families! I can tell that you will have a lot of happy years ahead of you, with a group of great people!! Enjoy!
