Corrissa & Jonathan

“With all the memories of us dating and getting engaged, there was no other option but beautiful Newport.”

Corrissa Norton & Jonathan Doda on November 21, 2015

Published in Newport Life Magazine July 2016 issue

Jonathan Doda set a persistent course to win Corrissa Norton’s heart. The Newport-based couple met after a mutual friend invited Corrissa to Jon’s apartment for “Taco Thursday.” When Corrissa had to leave early, Jon asked for her number and the fairytale began. Within weeks, Corrissa introduced Jon to her young daughter, Reese, and was blown away by his kindness. Ten months into their romance, as the couple played with Reese, Jon proposed and slipped the ring on his new fiancee’s hand. He continued spreading the love when he turned to Reese with a pair of diamond earrings and asked, “Will you be my daughter?” –PL

Wedding Theme

The couple chose colors that were timeless and classic with a dose of romance: black and white with champagne pink for a pop of color. The floral designs followed suit with bouquets of baby’s breath crowned with white and champagne pink Tibet roses. The wedding cake, a lemony whipped cream topped tower, was even petal-adorned.

Bridal Gown

Corrissa redesigned her godmother’s wedding dress, a classic Lazaro gown, into a fashionable modern A-line strapless beauty in candlelight white silk with an antique beaded bodice.

Special Touches

The couple’s strong commitment to family was the highlight of the day. In addition to adorning the fireplace mantle with wedding photos of their grandparents and parents, the couple requested that in lieu of gifts, donations be made in honor of Corrissa’s cousin who has brain cancer.

Where They Are Now

Post honeymoon in Kauai, Hawaii, the couple returned to where their story began; Corrissa is Sales Manager at The Hyatt Regency Newport Hotel & Spa, and Jon presides as the Contract Manager of Biomedical Services for Claflin Medical Equipment.
