Kendra and Ken

Kendra and Ken had a beautiful church wedding at St. Francis De Sales Church in North Kingstown, RI, and then a spectacular reception at Belle Mer on Goat Island, in Newport, RI.  One question couples often ask me is, "Should we do a receiving line?" or, more commonly, "What's a receiving line?"  Kendra and Ken had an afternoon wedding and a evening reception.  This gives couples a lot of flexibility to relax, take formal portraits, touchup hair and makeup, and even change outfits before the cocktail hour.  It also gives friends and family members a chance to get lunch, a drink, and enjoy downtown Newport.  Because of the gap in the schedule, Kendra and Ken opted for a receiving line, so they could spend a few moments with each of their guests right after the ceremony.  The break also meant that everyone was refreshed ready to party.  Lucky for them, they had a great DJ too!  Bill Bibeau of Rhythm Express.
