Claire and Caleb's Mount Hope Farm Wedding | The Newport Bride

Claire and Caleb’s Mount Hope Farm Wedding

Caleb and I (Claire) met in January 2008 during my freshman year at Roger Williams University. Caleb was roommates with one of my best friends from high school who was just returning from his study abroad session in Italy and invited me over to a party. As soon as I walked into their apartment, I saw Caleb for the first time and he had the most captivating smile. We didn’t talk that night besides being introduced to one another, but after I got home from the party, I called my mom and told her that I had met the guy I was going to marry.
