Wedding Wednesday: October 7, 2017

This past October, Eric and I made our way back down the aisle for the first time as husband and wife. We were surrounded by our loved ones and couldn’t have been happier with how our day ended up. Now back from our honeymoon in Africa (more on that later) I’m finally getting around to sharing a few of our wedding photos here! We will also be sharing more from our wedding in the coming weeks and talking about some do’s and don’t’s after what we learned about planning a wedding ourselves.

Our wedding took place in beautiful Newport, RI- it was a place that was in between both of our families and a town we quickly fell in love with. Eric went to college in Rhode Island and I grew up dreaming of the Newport Mansions so in the end, it was a perfect fit for us. My mother has always said “it never rains on my parties” and this was no exception. We were blessed with the most perfect October weather for our outdoor ceremony.

Not only was the weather perfect, but we had an absolutely amazing team to help us with our big day- from our amazing family and friends to our kick-ass friendors (then vendors, now friends) we really have a lot to be thankful for.
