Oceancliff Newport Wedding | Derek & Jennifer | Lefebvre Photography


Jennifer and Derek met during the spring of their senior year of high school, where they attended schools across town from one another in Providence, RI. Jennifer's dad coached Derek's baseball team. She attended every game that season, because the third basemen (Derek) immediately gave her the welcomed attention she wanted from the guy she was crushing on. The following summer their relationship grew, which built a solid foundation for the next 8 years to come, when Derek popped the question in the winter of 2017. Because of attending separate colleges, Derek's professional hockey career, and Jennifer's teaching career, they grew accustomed to a long-distance relationship that has led them through an ever-changing and exciting adventure that continues to add to their unique story.

The bride and groom wanted their day to be just like a fairytale, which was Jennifer's vision from the start. She had always wanted to be married by the water, and Derek wanted that for her. Their Rhode Island roots made it necessary and important to have a ceremony and reception by the sea. While having an elegant, rather elaborate ceremony, they also wanted the simplistic touches of light colored flowers and accents on place settings. The pink and sparkly-themed aesthetic was essential to the overall look, which teamed up perfectly for June in New England. Because Disney is very special to the bride and groom, that played an integral part at the wedding. From the princess ballgown the bride wore, to the precession of "When You Wish Upon A Star," to the Cinderella castle-themed cake, finished off with the "Happily Ever After" sweetheart table chair signs, this encapsulated the unique and special touches they were aiming for from the start. This was truly a fairytale wedding day.
