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.

Alexandra and Todd’s Regatta Place Wedding
Set up by a mutual friend, Alexandra and Todd met at a local bar in Charlestown. They spent the night lost in love.

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.
