I loved working with Meg and Chris earlier this month at their gorgeous sea-side celebration at The Bohlin in downtown Newport. Their smile was infectious and the pure joy was simply beautiful. Before the reception out on the docks, the couple had a lovely ceremony at St . Joesph’s before we headed over to the Marble House for portraits. It was the perfect combination of the right settings, the prettiest details, and the fabulous personalities of Meg and Chris and their guests! What a great day!
Q- What was your inspiration behind your wedding? A- We wanted to create a weekend getaway for our guests and Newport, RI was the perfect destination. Our theme of the weekend could be defined as a casual yet classy, with our reception at the Yachting Center and a traditional Catholic Mass at the beautiful Church of Saint Joseph. Q- If you could pick one moment from your entire day to be your favorite, what would it be? A- So hard to choose, the whole day was full of special moments! If we had to pick one, it would be during the homily when our celebrant, Father Biagi, shared what Chris and I had each individually written to him regarding what we love about each other and what our marriage means to each of us. Q- What detail did you love or treasure the most about your wedding?A- Music! The trumpet entrance at our mass, acoustic guitarist at cocktail hour, Irish music midway through the reception and the amazing sounds of Splash! did not disappoint. …. That moment when your dad serenades you on your wedding day. Just beautiful! Q- Would you change anything if you could? A- We can’t think of anything we would change! The whole weekend was exactly what we hoped for … and more! Q- What advice would you offer to our future brides and grooms? A- 1. If you can, hire a day of planner to manage anything that may come up the week or day of. Having Heather Dawn Events on call gave us peace of mind and allowed us to really enjoy the day. 2. Use the wedding planning process as a bonding experience with your soon to be husband or wife. It is stressful at times but looking back we had a lot of fun and shared a lot of laughs!
