Ashley and Dan’s Suculent Loving Quidnessett Country Club Wedding

Dan and Ashley met the old fashioned way…on Match.com. He was just finishing up his C++ class for his software engineering degree late one night when he saw a beautiful picture pop up. He was exhausted and right at the very end of the semester. He shut his computer and decided to just go to bed. A few seconds later he opened it back up and sent a quick a message. He told his best friend later that night that he was going to marry the girl he had just messaged. Seems like love at first sight really is a thing!

The Gifts your Groomsmen Actually Want

Bridal party gifts are supposed to be a gesture that shows how much you care about your closest friends and family. Don’t let choosing an item stress you out! You can spend as much or as little as you want. It’s not about the dollar, it is about the thought that goes into it. We collected a few of our favorite groomsmen gifts ranging in price and made sure each item is something your guys would actually want to receive.

Kerin and Ryan’s Regatta Place Wedding

Kerin & Ryan picked Newport for their wedding location, almost on a whim. Both had never spent too much time in our quaint coastal town but after a visit, they knew that it was the perfect place to host their wedding. A local destination of sorts, Newport provided the perfect place for their friends and family to escape to without much traveling. And with cooler temperatures and small crowds, the weekend event was the perfect way to experience Newport in a leisurely and relaxed pace. Kerin & Ryan started the day in downtown Newport, both getting ready in separate houses right on Thames Street. Kerin’s house even had a top floor roof deck that overlooked downtown and Newport Harbor! Following a lovely and intimate ceremony, they headed to the magnificent Elms Mansion for wedding portraits with their wedding party & family. Finally, they headed back to Regatta Place, located right in Newport Harbor, for a night of dancing and celebrating. Their day was a great mix of everything wonderful about Newport – the history and coastal charm was the perfect compliment for Kerin & Ryan’s day as captured by Deborah Zoe Photography.

Danielle and Dan's Gold and Cranberry Atlantic Resort Wedding

Danielle and Dave’s Gold and Cranberry Atlantic Resort Wedding

Danielle and Dave met freshman year at the University of Rhode Island through mutual friends before a URI basketball game. On the first day of Junior year, they ran into each
other at CharlieO’s bar and all it took was that first date for them to “go steady”. On the weekends they made trips to Newport and fell in love with each other and the quaint seaside town. They even named their Goldendoodle Rhody because of the special place Rhode Island holds in their hearts!

A little bit of rain couldn’t dampen the joyous spirits of these two lovebirds. Though their big day was perhaps a little damper than most would hope for, the grey clouds only served to let their love shine through all the more. Melissa Stimpson captured this sweet couples big day and as you’ll see, their love for each other is quite evident. <3

Ellen and Chris’s Narragansett Towers and South County Museum Wedding

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!
