Ida Lewis Yacht Club: Lexi Plock + Rob Spets Wedding

Lexi and Rob have been partners in crime for years, traveling the world for their yacht life profession and passion. Looking to finally make it “official,” Lexi and Rob choose Ida Lewis Yacht Club to host their intimate wedding ceremony and cocktail reception. The Ida Lewis Yacht Club is a located on Lime Rock in the heart of Newport Harbor, providing couples and private club members 360-degrees of water views from its haborfront locale.

Groom’s sister Ashley, masterfully arranged cherry blooms as the backdrop for the nuptials, and sourced gorgeous florals, she herself designed from Greenlion Design.

The blustery and raining day, opened up for moments long enough to get outside and quickly shoot between hugging, drinking and celebrating with their closest family and friends. This seafaring couple demonstrated their love can weather any storm.

Love along the seashore

I was honored to shoot Middletown native Armond Lavalle and his fiancé Michelle Ann Post at Second Beach for their engagement. The sporty couple mixed things up starting off with a beautiful “beachy” look in the sand dunes and ended with rash guards and surf boards in the water. It was an epic evening with a gorgeous sunsets and full moon rising to boot.

The future Lavalle’s are getting hitched Summer 2019 in Narragansett, Rhode Island…on the beach of course!

Inspired by their Tuscan engagement, the adorable and cheeky couple wanted to incorporate the romantic and dreamy feel of their recent Italian vacation into their shoot.

The future Schumers are thrilled to be chosen as Newport Bride’s 2019 couple of the year. Over the coming months they will be sharing all aspects of our personal wedding planning process with the general public - From the good, the creative, the stressful, ugly and the lovely.
