Chris and Katelyn first met when Chris, an RA, checked Katelyn out of her room after sophomore year of college. However, sparks didn’t fly until a year later when Chris returned from his study abroad program in Belgium and began regularly hanging out with Katelyn’s friend group. Katelyn will tell you that she was the one that made the first move when he returned, but Chris knows the truth – having already decided while abroad that he would date Katelyn upon his return.
Caitlin and Steve wanted their wedding to be a mini-destination for their friends and family. When the couple first went to visit Glen Manor House, they knew right away that Newport and Glen Manor were the perfect fit. Their visit happened to be on the coldest day of the year in the middle of February, and it was still the most beautiful venue they had ever seen!
What some might call chance, we call romantic foreshadowing. Years before the proposal happened, Taylor surprised his then-girlfriend Corrine with a trip to Newport. Every summer since the couple returned and when it finally came time to choose a wedding destination, Newport was the only option. Corrine and Taylor visited the Carnegie Abbey Club with family friends for a 4th of July party and instantly fell in love with the nautical vibe, classic elegance, and amazing water views. Plus, Taylor is a diehard golfer and the club’s course is one for the books!
