It turned out to be the most BEAUTIFUL day for a NE wedding at The Newport Vineyards! Liz + Riley couldn’t have picked a better place to capture their love. They stayed a beautiful home, just a few minutes up the street to get ready for their big day. Liz was surrounded by all of her beautiful bridemaids + family. It was so sweet seeing everyone’s reaction to her in her stunning dress! Oh, the tears!!! The Saccharra Salon did such an amazing job on her + all of her ladies hair + makeup.
Liz + Riley decided to have a ‘First Look’ together, which definitely gave us plenty of time to take some AMAZING portraits of them + their bridal party before the ceremony!! The sweetest part about seeing them together is how much they were always laughing together. I just adore them so much!
Their ceremony was surrounded by the beautiful vineyards, as the sun was setting. There were so many tears shed as they said their vows to one another. The beautiful, live music, set such a sweet atmosphere. Everything was simply gorgeous, especially because of the amazing florals by Sayleslivingston Design that added the most beautiful touches; from the bouquets, ceremony site decor, to the reception table arrangements + greenery displayed so beautifully at the Newport Vineyards Venue. Every element was so unbelievably stunning!!
You either were smiling or in tears of joy as you watched these two together. Liz couldn’t help but make everyone laugh (especially the faces she would make with me while taking pictures haha) and Riley kept everything calm with his gentle demeanor. When it came for people to share their kind words about the couple, there was no doubt how right they were for one another. These two love one another unconditionally + are truly committed to fighting for this beautiful thing called marriage.
Y’all just need to see for yourselves…
So gorgeous. The new, Elizabeth Taylor! I fell in love with their wedding invites!!

Liz looked absolutely beautiful! So cute!!! All of her main ladies looking super cute in their matching robes! That RING! LIZ, you are so beautiful!!! And of course her mama had to zip her up in her dress. So beautiful. Can’t you tell she is so beautiful on the inside as well?! The reaction every girl desires from her ladies… Them making sure she looks jusssst right! Oh the tears! Liz’s father seeing her for the first time. My goodness, my heart melted!! So precious. Daddy had to put on her stunning Chanel necklace. Details, details. Liz loves her little sisters! Then we headed down the road to the Newport Vineyards , where they did their first look! I just love his reaction! So sweet. These two. ✨ So beautiful!!! The perfect, sunny day was in full effect! Giving her that stunning glow.

Such a beautiful group! I love these!! I just love seeing all of the colors + florals tied together! What a beautiful group. ✨💕 The Grooms Family The Bride’s family! Such a great group of people. I love seeing Liz with her little brothers + sisters. 💕 Look at her. Simply BEAUTIFUL! Then it was time for the Ceremony to begin! These florals were breath taking!!
This moment gets me every time! 😭 I can’t imagine what it’s like as a Dad, handing off your little girl. He knows he’s placing her in good hands. 💕 So sweet.
Such a beautiful ceremony site! Absolutely stunning. The part we all wait for!!! Mr. + Mrs. Taylor!!! 💍 Then we were able to sneak off into the vineyards for some more pictures of them two as the sun was going down. Liz sets the bar high for future brides! #veilgoals Sooo beautiful!
These two! I just love them. 💕 Then the cocktail hour was ending and we headed inside to the beautifully decorated reception!
Just look at these florals!!! Sayleslivingston did such an AMAZING job! I’m so in love with the wooden chairs + long tables! 😍
Such beautiful details! Here comes Mr. + Mrs. Taylor, starting the night off with their first dance to Beyond- by Leon Bridges, played live by The Silver Arrow Band . The stunning, white candles on all of the tables set the atmosphere so beautifully. ✨
Oh how I love these two! 😭✨💕 Then it became time for all of the speeches! Liz’s dad started the night off! He definitely made a big point to include how babies should come in their near future! 😂 You can tell that Liz + Riley looooooved that one! haha, but it was super sweet. He made such a point to honor everyone there that meant a lot to the Bride + Groom. Then of course Liz’s maid of honor, Brittany, had to share her funny + heartfelt speech! She definitely confirmed what everyone already felt about Riley; of how much of a sweet heart he is and how he sets the bar high for how guys should treat their ladies. He is definitely a keeper!
Then Riley’s best man, Sean, definitely had the tears flowing on them. As their roommate, he has the inside scoop into their relationship + without a doubt, sees + knows how right they are for one another.
You can tell how much Sean means to them! 💕 Then it became time for the special dances, starting with Mother-Son dance! ✨ These dances get me every time… 😭😭😭
Just love Liz with her Daddy! It’s the sweetest. 💕 The night went on + the adorable couple snuck off to cut their beautiful cake by Modern Pastry! It was so beautiful + tied in perfectly with the rest of the decor! Everyone spent the end of the night just dancing + having a blast together! They’re too much!!! 😂 And of course they had to try the AMAZING donuts! So deliciousssss. The Silver Arrow Band carried on the rest of the night with their amazing skills! So great having a LIVE band to entertain everyone. ✨ Liz’s main ladies led the way on the dance floor!
Such a fun night!
