Julia and James – A Providence Biltmore Wedding

So I’m way behind on my blogging,  BUT I am so excited to share this great December wedding that wrapped up my 2009 season!  I first met Julia through one of my previous great couples Steph and Bobby (who are the first image on my main webpage).  Julia was a bridesmaid for Steph back in 2008.  Julia and Jimmy decided to have a wintry wedding and have their gorgeous reception at the Providence Biltmore Hotel on a cold Friday evening.  The ceremony took place in a small church and we left immediately after the ceremony to go to the Providence public library to take some formals.  Check out some of my favorites from the day!

The day started at Julia’s parents’ house.  I couldn’t resist grabbing this silhouette of Julia as she got her dress adjusted.


Sometimes the most beautiful portraits come when people don’t know their having their picture taken.  Here Julia was having her dress adjusted again.


How can you not immediately love these two?!  Such a great energy between mother and daughter.


I think this is the literal definition of a glowing bride!

Julia’s parents’ bedroom made the perfect location for a beautiful, window lit portrait.

During the ceremony, Julia and Jimmy kept trading these glances and giving these great smiles!

Do I need to say anything?!

The Providence Library has this beautiful marble staircase which made for a great spot for some quick portraits.

When I walked in the room, all I said was “WOW!”  Thanks to Doug Levy for grabbing this room shot while I got my lights ready.  Dead on Doug!

The Providence set the scene for a spectacularly elegant first dance.  Thanks to Sarah for providing my lighting!

One last kiss before the end of the dance:

As Jimmy and Julia listened to the toasts, I watched from a far and grabbed tons of great moments!

One of my favorite moments from my 2009 season.  His look says so much.

Julia and Jimmy were treated to a little surprise performance from this fantastic Irish step dancing group.

Again – great reactions while the watched the dancing.

No formal last dance, but just a great moment as the evening wound to a close.

Jimmy and Julia – thanks so much for your hospitality and for making the day so fun!  I am so happy I could be there to share in your wedding day. Special thanks to Doug Levy as well for his help!
