Ellen and Chris met on a February night in 2013 at one of Brooklyn’s finest bars – Hank’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Saloon. Their meet-cute was just that, a cute meet up that grew into a tender romance. In December 2014 a move brought them to Boston, just in time for a record-breaking 100+ inches of snowfall. A year and a half later, they traveled to Syracuse to celebrate Chris’ 32nd birthday. Unbeknownst to Ellen, he had been carrying an engagement ring that he designed with a friend. On the way home, Chris surprised Ellen with a detour to where he proposed. Ellen said yes!
From the ceremony at the South County Museum, just a few miles down the road from the bride’s aunt’s home, to the reception at the Narragansett Towers, every piece of Ellen and Chris’s wedding celebration was reminiscent of family. When it came time to set details for their big day, Chris and Ellen incorporated details like a trellis handcrafted by the father-of-the-groom into their decor. Their ceremony included exerts from the groom’s parent wedding for an extra family touch. The couple loves their family, a Rhode Island, so much that they even planned an after-party at Turtle Soup, a local hot spot so out-of-town guests could experience the town Chris and Ellen love most. Nicholas Woods of Stella Mia Photography captured the obvious love this couple has for each other and judging from what we see, this couple is just perfect for each other.
