I met Julie-Ann for our initial meeting and realized we had two mutual referrals- our own sisters. Just goes to show you how small our lovely state of Rhode Island really is. We are both super close to our sisters, so having that common ground from the start was an amazing feeling. Julie-Ann and I chatted for a while during our meeting. Our get together suddenly felt like we were friends catching up rather than a meeting, which I loved. I was so happy that Julie-Ann asked me to capture their special day. Julie-Ann's getting ready location at the Nylo hotel was a perfect setting. I love the industrial and modern feel to the hotel and abundance of perfect natural light. We then proceeded to the Chapel Grille in Cranston for their intimate ceremony and reception.
Julie-Ann and Don's New Journey celebration was an event I'll always remember. Their intimate ceremony, reception, friends, family, and of course Julie-Ann and Don left a lasting impression on me. There were so many moments during the evening that moved me. I had to hold back tears a few times. I loved their attention to detail, incorporation of meaningful pieces from their love story, and involvement with family members. Nothing is better than when the stars align and timing is right for two strangers to come together and build a relationship. They truly are an amazing and loving couple. I couldn't be more thrilled for them and wish them a lifetime of happiness.
