Set up by a mutual friend, Alexandra and Todd met at a local bar in Charlestown. They spent the night lost in love. Not wanting the night to end, they strolled hand in hand through the grounds of Parris Landing until they stumbled upon a swimming pool. Todd suggested that they take a quick moonlight dip and Alexandra knew she had met her match. From there, the fun continued through countless country concerts, hanging with friends in Boston, late night pizza and occasional moonlight swims. Todd proposed to Alexandra 6 years later in Boston and planned the most amazing engagement weekend full of amazing surprises, family and friends.
From the time they began dating, Todd and Alexandra spent some time in Newport every summer, so when they got engaged it felt right to look at venues in Newport. The weekend after their engagement they visited Newport and decided to take a look at Regatta Place. It was the first venue they looked at, and that is all it took. They fell in love with Regatta Place’s charm, beautiful setting and the intimate venue they imagined it would create on their wedding day.
Alexandra and Todd’s wedding day was full of special touches. The couples pug, Bogie, made the perfect ring dog. Having him there made the day even more special. The father of one of Alexandra’s best childhood friends was the couples revered for the ceremony. Alexandra’s Dad is quite the character. He sang a Frank Sinatra song for Todd and Alexandra at the wedding as a surprise much to the delight of the couple and their guests. One of the bridesmaids made a guest book out of the couples engagement photos. It was beautiful, unique and a great keepsake for Alexandra and Todd!
