A day in Newport and East Greenwich, RI

Linnea and I took a little trip down to Rhode Island on Saturday. One of her brides is getting married in Newport this summer and they had appointments to visit the florist and the wedding venue. So while they were talking bouquets & centerpieces, I took the opportunity to walk around funky downtown East Greenwich, RI and take some fun shots! If any of my fellow wedding photogs are ever in the area to shoot an engagement session, I found the perfect little spot for a few shots. Hint: it's in an alley and it's green! I'll post photos tomorrow.

We next headed to Newport to visit the wedding venue, Belle Mer. What a spectacular place to hold a wedding. It has the feel of Newport, Miami, and The Hamptons all wrapped into one. I took some great shots that I'll post in a couple days.

Linnea has another wedding in Newport this summer at the Rosecliff mansion... so we took a drive along Bellevue Ave. to check it out. Talk about impressive! I'm gonna have to tag along as the "wedding planner's assistant" on that one. ;) And to cap off the day, we did some window-shopping around downtown Newport and then had a GREAT dinner at the Cooke House restaurant. We were exhausted by the time we got back home around 8, but it was well worth it! Below are a few of my "walkin' around" East Greenwich and Newport shots...

It was sitting on the mossy steps of the house with the red door above.
