Hope and Dan met in a serendipitous way – at the unlimited beer tent after a 5k race in Boston sparks flew and these two have been together ever since! Having grown up in Rhode Island, Hope knew she wanted a coastal Dunes Club wedding with a classic New England style.
I first met Hope and Dan at Cool Beans cafe. We immediately connected over our love for Lily Pulitzer, being Celiacs/GF, and dogs! Their Jamestown engagement session was so much fun and we really hit it off – despite the temperatures being frigid! I learned very quickly that both Hope and Dan love a good adventure, sharing a laugh, and having a great time in anything they do together. These too really have a unique zest for life and it shines in their relationship.
The couple’s coastal Dunes Club wedding connected their love for the classic, New England style and a coastal vibe that connected their favorite people. A traditional Episcopalian wedding ceremony took place at Hope’s family church, St. Lukes. After an emotional ceremony, their boisterous, fun bridal party arrived in style at the Dunes Club by the Newport trolley. A beautiful August evening invited us. Cocktails on the lawn by the sea, followed by an intimate sit down dinner invited guests to relax, dance, and enjoy the ocean breeze. My favorite part of the evening was seeing Hope and Dan celebrate at sunset with their wedding portraits. The light in the garden at the Dunes Club was next to magical. We even had some fun splashing near the waves on the beach and catching that last pink glow. I loved every minute of this coastal Dunes Club wedding and am over the moon happy for Hope + Dan!
