Kimberly + Christopher’s Castle Hill Wedding

Kim + Chris are a couple straight out of an old Hollywood Film. I mean, just LOOK at them! Not to mention that they’re a modern day power couple: he’s a doctor and she’s a lawyer! I seriously get to know the COOLEST people through this awesome job that I have. They are kindred souls, and if you see the way Chris looks at her (see below) you will totally get what I’m saying here. They met each other in college at Binghampton University where they both played soccer, and coincidently were both central mid-fielders (hence the soccer balls kicking around at cocktail hour) and rumor has it that the night they met MAY or MAY NOT have included a couple of beers, a karaoke bar and a totally smooth Johnny Cash melody which Chris claims is what ultimately won Kim’s heart! I’ll let them tell you the rest of that story themselves, if they so desire!
When I asked Chris what he loves the most about Kimberly he said “Kim has the ability to make me happy and grateful, no matter what mood I am in before I’m with her. She is intelligent, strong, fun and inspiring to me. She makes me the best possible version of myself. She also happens to be drop-dead GORGEOUS!”
When we were talking about how they fell in love, Kim shared that she fell in love with Christopher when she realized how sincere and caring he truly is, as noticed by his interactions with her, his family, and complete strangers. Chris says he knew pretty dang early he loved her. He just couldn’t imagine anyone more perfect, but he found that his love was affirmed over and over again as he realized how compatible they were during their time traveling together. Seriously, could they BE any more adorable?
Their wedding was the perfect culmination of all of their favorite things: their friends + family, travel (many came from out of town to enjoy the beautiful Castle Hill Inn in Newport, RI), good (and by good I mean DIVINE) food, soccer at cocktail hour and even coffee at the end of the night. Kim and Chris, I could go on forever about how lucky I am to have gotten to share this season of your lives with you, and how honored I am that you trusted me to capture one of the most exciting days of your life but for now, I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
