Modern Botanical Garden’s Wedding in Providence, Rhode Island

Word’s can’t even begin to describe the love felt at Elyse + Jon’s wedding at the Botanical Gardens. They are both currently serving in the Navy at Guantanamo Bay and to say that their families were happy to have them home, even if for a brief visit, would be an understatement.

The Botanical Garden’s served as the perfect place for their modern yet casual wedding.  The gorgeous greenhouse plants, giant succulents, and palms brought a little bit of Cuba to their state side celebration.  There was even a surprise message sent from their fellow officers during the toasts, to make this already sentimental occasion, even more special for everyone involved.

One of the strongest messages felt throughout all of the toasts was how genuine, kind and caring both Elyse + Jon are, and I honestly couldn’t agree more.  The love they share for each other is felt in all of their wedding photographs.  From the tender way Jon looks at Elyse, to the way they make each other laugh and indulging each other in the goofy things the other wants to try – it’s an incredible thing to be able to witness and document for my couples.
