Lauren and Robyn-Belle Mer

I always say, we can control almost anything on the wedding day except Mother Nature.  On Lauren and Robyn's wedding day, she opened up the skies.  While it did foil their plans for outside pre-ceremony photos, it did not damper spirits.  By the time the ceremony was over, the sky cleared over Belle Mer and they were able to get gorgeous shots outside. The personal touches they had were so much fun.  Instead of a traditional guest book, they opted for Jenga pieces, since this was a game that had significance to them.  And at the end of the night, when everyone is on the dance floor, why not surprise them with Ben and Jerry's ice cream sundaes.  This was such a hit with their guests.  The guests also got to enjoy the mirror photobooth, provided by Luke Renchan Entertainment.  Congratulations to Lauren and Robyn!

Amanda and Mike-Acoaxet Club

Amanda and Mike were married at the Westport Free Chapel in Westport, MA.  It was such a quaint location with much history to the small chapel.  After the ceremony, guests headed down the stree for the reception at the Acoaxet Club.  The cocktail hour was held outside on the lawn and it had a beautiful scenic view of the ocean.  The theme that Amanda and Mike went with was party animals, because they wanted their guests to relax and have a good time.  Many of the guests had rented private homes in the area, to be close to the couple for the weekend.  After a wonderful dinner, guests were on the dance floor most of the night. After the reception, they headed to the rented home of Amanda and Mike for more fun and food!  Congrats to Amanda and Mike!

Chelsea and Eric-Five Bridge Inn

Chelsea and Eric were married at The Five Bridge Inn in Rehoboth, Mass.  Chelsea is a huge Alice in Wonderland fan so she decided to make that her theme for her wedding.  From teapot centerpieces, to giant clock decor, it made for a truly unique theme.   Eric is a disabled veteran and was injured in Afghanistan when a bomb went off where he was stationed. In lieu of favors, they donated money to the disabled veterans foundation, with a special message from the couple, that was heartfelt and touched everyone in the room. This couple has been through a great ordeal together and this day could not have been more special and beautiful for them.  Congratulations to Chelsea and Eric and thank you for your service Eric!

Todd and Amy-Northbeach Clubhouse

Amy was probably the most thorough bride I have ever had.   Todd and Amy were married at The Northbeach Clubhouse in Narragansett, RI. They had many of the traditional Jewish ceremonies incorporated into their wedding day and had a wonderful program to explain all these traditions to their guests. Although, they stayed at the Clubhouse for their ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. They transformed each space so that is was unique and different from how it previously looked. The food was catered by West Bay Gourmet, due to the bride's celiac disease, all of the food had to be gluten free, and West Bay Gourmet, did an amazing job.  Florals were done by Flowerthyme and music and photobooth were provided by Luke's ENT. Congratulations Todd and Amy!

Stephanie and Bill-Dragonline Studios

Stephanie and Bill had their wedding at Dragonline Studios in Jamestown, RI. What started out as a horrible rainy day, ended up being a beautiful afternoon for their outdoor ceremony and tented wedding. Stephanie, a jewelry designer, had a clear vision for her wedding day. She has so many personalized pieces that were included into different aspects of their wedding, it definitely was creative and meaningful.  Drgonline Studios is a unique location, where artists gather to work.  The grounds are right on the water and the backyard is spectacular. I know that photographer, Joseph Laurin, captured some amazing shots. The food was absolutely amazing provided by Blue Rocks Catering, and the dance floor was packed all night long by the sounds of the band, Soul Estate, with vocals by American Idol alumni, Erica Van Pelt. Congratulations Stephanie and Bill!

Martha and Gerry-50th Wedding Anniversary-1149 Restaurant

I got to step our of our wedding world and plan such a wonderful anniversary party for Martha and Gerry.  They celebrated this momentous event with 80 of their closest friends and family at the 1149 Restaurant in East Greenwich.  Sherri from Stoneblossoms provided the beautiful floral arrangements, while Art in Ice, provided the ice sculpture.  They had decided on doing a traditional Italian meal  First everyone enjoyed passed hors d'oeuvres, then they had antipasto, Italian Wedding soup , pasta and finally the entree. I do not believe that any guest left hungry that night. Especially with the dessert being cake from Scrumptions and Wandies and Italian cookies from Wandies by Pina.  After dinner, guests rolled out of their chairs and onto the dance floor with Amanda Carr from MBeatable Music. What an amazing celebration to honor a great couple!
