Black and white Rhode Island wedding: Emily + Paul

categories Real Weddings

Yes it’s Friday and yes, the madness that is Coachella has begun. Good luck to all of you braving the sweaty crowds. And for the rest of us – hey, there are always pretty weddings to look at. Starting with Emily + Paul’s classic and oh so romantically misty wedding, photographed by Bayly & Moore. It’s been gloomy on our side of town these past couple of days, so it feels perfect to get all cozy with the black, white, and grays in these photos. PS, their video is in stop motion and it’s ah-mazing.

Where does a guy from London and a gal from New York meet and fall in love? In a small beach town in Portugal, named Lagos. At a bar called Three Monkeys to be exact.

Not only did Emily + Paul have a fab sense of style, but their party did too. Emily’s stylish bridesmaids all got to pick their own dresses (see the credits below for where they all shopped) and just proves once again how much we love the mismatched look, especially when they’re all in slightly different shades of one another.

Gotta have some sparkly Christian Louboutins!

Emily found her dress (the one that fits her like a glove) at Amy Kuschel Bridal in San Francisco. Ladies, if you’re ever near the Bay Area, it’s a must stop. They construct and design each gown one by one, in the boutique that you actually walk into! It’s pretty amazing.
