“We are fortunate enough to call Newport our home. It’s where we met, work and live. We couldn’t think of any other place that would be more special to us.”

Brittany Lyon & Trevor Powers on December 12, 2015

Published in Newport Wedding Magazine 2017 Issue

A blind date, arranged by the groom’s sister-in-law, brought Minnesota native Brittany Lyon and Rhode Islander Trevor Powers together on a brisk December night in Newport. Brittany recalls the fateful meeting with a laugh, “He told me I would recognize him because he was wearing a black coat—as if no one wears black coats in December.” Little did Brittany know that two years later, on Christmas Eve, Trevor would have an unforgettable present for her. “My ring was the last gift and he proposed.” Nearly three years to the day they met, the two celebrated their Christmas nuptials at the perfectly cozy Newport Vineyards. –SK

Christmas Celebration

The couple danced to the tune of Frank Sinatra’s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Throughout the night Santa Claus entertained guests of all ages, who left with scrumptious Christmas cookies from the bride and groom.

A Warm Welcome

A surprising 65-degree December wedding did not hamper the cozy ambiance. The bride comfortably wore an intricately patterned Maggie Sottero gown with Swarovski crystal adornment.

The First Look

One of the most cherished memories of the day was the couple’s private meeting before the ceremony. This special moment, shared outside of the Marble House, created a nerve-free, private environment for the excited spouses-to-be.

Where Are They Now

After a scintillating honeymoon in both Dubai and the Maldives Islands, the couple returned to their home in Portsmouth. Brittany continues to work as an account executive for Wedding Wire and Trevor is a loan officer for Embrace Home Loans.
