Graduate Hotel Providence Wedding: Jess & Jon

Monday, Dec 6, 2021Weddings
he Graduate Hotel in Providence is a charming, historic wedding venue and was the perfect backdrop for Jess & Jon's fall wedding. We started the day with getting ready photos and I loved the moody and colorful decor and bright natural light in the suite. Jess had her hair done by Liz Tucker and makeup by Jessica D'Amore and her bridesmaids had the best reaction to seeing her in her gown! Jess and Jon had their first look on the outside balcony with the Graduate sign and view of downtown Providence in the background, which was a stunning location to kickoff their wedding portraits. From here, we walked around downtown Providence with their wedding party and took portraits in front of Providence City Hall and on historic Westminster Street, stopping traffic to take some "casual walking down the street" photos with their crew and utilizing the architecture of the city as a backdrop. At the ceremony, their chuppah was designed by their florist Designing Images who also created the high top centerpieces in the reception space. The ballroom at the Graduate has such high ceilings, so the high top centerpieces added a lot of visual drama and complimented the space perfectly. After their first dance and speeches, their band Night Shift rocked the house and had their guests up and dancing all night. A huge thank you to Jess & Jon for inviting me to capture their special day, and to my associate photographer Bridget Davies for all her help and hard work!
