Emily & Darrell say I do

Emily and Darrell have eloped in Providence, RI on December 21, 2017.

It's a small world isn't it?

Well, it is when one of your friend's daughters reaches out to ask you to photograph her wedding.

I had never met Emily or Darrell before their wedding day but they are an amazing, sweet, and strong couple. I am so glad I was able to be there.

Plus I LOVE Rhode Island.

I grew up about 40 minutes from Providence.

How pretty is the state house here? : )

My husband and I lived in Providence for a bit together before we moved to Massachusetts.

I have a special place in my heart for Providence and I always will.

So, Emily and Darrell have two little ones, Margot and Lily.

Oh my goodness they are so cute!

I love kids, can you tell?

Lily is FULL of personality.

I can't wait to take that adventure myself with my hubby.

LOOK at this face!!!

Margot is equally as adorable!

Both girls were fascinated with Emily's pretty bouquet.

...but Margot's shoes though!!

Little ballerina slippers...I just can't, haha.

Here is my wonderful friend Candice "aka" grandma putting on her shoes <3

Now Margot is ready to go!

Lily loved these flowers so much she didn't really want to put them down, haha.

So adorable.

I loved how curious Lily was, wanting to see and explore the courthouse.

With daddy's help of course : )

The courthouse is quite old and had a very vintage vibe to it which Emily and I both loved.

As we waited for the judge I took some shots in the room outside his chambers which had some really cool things.

Like this SUPER amazing old school card catalogue!!

Love it!

The ladies in the office were working, but kindly let me in to snap a few photos (thank you, you're the best!!)

There was also these old records which I discovered pulled out on wheels.

I would "OOOOOO!!!" every so often and then look up to find the women in the office glancing over a tad worried, haha.

There was dust on the books too, so timeless.

I didn't remove any (although I so BADLY wanted to) because, well...getting thrown out of my first courthouse wedding would have made for a bad day ; )

I had a great time looking over everything!

So Emily and Darrell planned on tying the knot at City Hall in Providence.

...and they sort of did.

Being busy parents, working, and living an active life they realized they completely forgot their marriage certificate at home.

Don't worry Darrell you are definitely NOT the first person this has happened to.

People forget their wedding rings, vows, you name it.
