Choosing our transportation.
We want to make sure our guests do not have to worry about driving to and from each venue and ensure everyone’s safety! For our transportation we decided on a Mercedes bus limo, which will take us from our hotel to Ochre Court. With an August wedding, we are anticipating a hot day and wanted to make sure the transportation we chose had great air conditioning to keep everyone cool! For the after party, we have arranged for buses to take everyone to and from Newport Blues.

Choosing our cake.
Evan and I chose our cake together. The owner of Mad Hatter Bakery assured me the cupcake recipes were the same batter as the cakes, so I bought every kind of cupcake they had! Evan and I had a lot of fun doing our very own taste test at home! We finally decided on having a dessert table and our cake, a classic two-tier vanilla cake with buttercream frosting.

Choosing our wedding bands.
Evan custom designed my engagement ring, so we followed suit for our wedding bands. We designed them together in NYC and it was a fun and romantic experience.

Choosing the tuxes.
We are renting the wedding tuxes from Viking Tuxedo. The owner is a long time friend of my dad and the store had a wonderful selection. Evan and his groomsmen will be wearing a very dark navy tux and a navy bowtie.

Choosing the MOB dress.
My mom looked for the perfect dress when she was out shopping with some friends, but we ended up finding one together at Alexandra’s Bridal Boutique in Fall River. It also happens to be where I got my wedding dress! I wanted to make sure my mom was happy and comfortable but, at the same time, wanted to make sure it was classic and dressy. My mom is so important to me and has been such a huge part of the wedding that I wanted her to feel extra special and beautiful. It even has a train, adding elegance and importance, in my opinion, which I love! It makes the dress extra special, just like her! She looks absolutely gorgeous in it… the color and design will be a surprise for everyone!

What’s next?
I just had my bridal shower! Details coming soon. Now we are going around to meet with all of our vendors, pay remaining balances and buy the bridal party gifts! And I can’t forget my bachelorette party!

In love by the sea,
