Spring Vow Renewal at Castle Hill Inn, Newport Rhode Island

Lauren & Will reached out in January 2021 for their vow renewal ceremony on May 12, 2022. They were planning to elope at City Hall in Portland, Maine in the coming months, and planned to celebrate with 30 of their closest friends and family the following year at Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Rhode Island.

Their wedding fell on the first warm weekend of the year, with beautiful blue skies, trees blooming with lush florals, and swallows zipping around the ceremony site making it a magical day. Lauren and Will decided to get ready together, and brought their "Wedding Whisky", the same whisky that they enjoyed before they eloped last April. 

Lauren and Will wanted the focus to be on candids of their family and friends coming together, most of which had never met each other until this day. Their ceremony was followed by an extended cocktail hour on the patio, followed by dinner in the Ocean Room overlooking the breathtaking sunset over the water.
