Groom getting ready at Oceancliff, Newport RI

Lisa and Eric Popien planned a perfect outdoor ocean front late afternoon wedding at Oceancliff Hotel and Resort in Newport, Rhode Island. The groom Eric, and his nine groomsmen wore dark blue suits with the groom in a matching blue bow tie. Eric received a very sweet note and gift from his bride-to-be. We decided to clear the room so he could have a few minute to read the sweet words that Lisa had written to him on the morning of their seaside wedding. We wanted to give him some privacy so we captured his reaction in the mirror in the room. We made the image black & white so all the focus could be on his expression. 

Oceancliff Resort and Hotel is located a few miles outside of downtown Newport, Rhode Island over looking the Atlantic Ocean. Their elegant receptions are held in the ballroom or in a large victorian tent right on the grass front lawn.
