Melody and Bruce were married on August 11th, with a ceremony and reception at the Roger Williams Botanical Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
Both Bruce and Melody are intelligent, accomplished, goal-driven people who work in the field of education. Bruce recently started school at Harvard! And I couldn’t have asked for a bride who was more fun to be around than Melody. She is constantly joking around with everyone around her, which brought a fun spirit to this wedding.

In fact, at one point during the first dance, the music stopped, and Melody and Bruce took it all in stride. They even made a joke out of it! This is exactly what I’d expect from the two of them; they are just too much fun to let anything slow them down.
With that said, these two also knew how to get serious. My favorite moment of the day was directly after the ceremony, when they got a few minutes alone together in the rose garden to celebrate being husband and wife. Bruce kissed Melody on the head while he was embracing her. As a fine-art wedding photographer, it’s the organic, pure moments like these that make my job a joy.
As far as Providence wedding venues go, the Roger Williams Botanical Center is amazing for wedding photography. As the largest public indoor display garden in New England, it has multiple greenhouses filled with over 150 species of exotic plants, some animals, and a koi pond. I was never at a loss for something interesting to photograph!
We were also lucky enough to be asked to shoot the video, which can be viewed below.
