“This New England loving couple both spent summers at Narragansett beach growing up with their families but didn’t meet until they were in college together at the University of New Hampshire. Though they currently reside in the South End of Boston where Drew attends Medical School, Rhode Island remains a place of connection for them where they love to go on adventures with their pup Charlie and hope to call home one day. Therefore they could think of no better place to tie the knot.
Jackie is in advertising sales and previously worked at a wedding magazine — meaning she had every detail thought out long before 9.3.2021, all of which I brought to life. The couple made the directional sign together, chose light up cocktail tables to adorn the outdoor space, and tied a piece of the brides‘ grandpa’s yammukah around her bouquet as her something old.
While pink and greens were the colors of choice to bring the secret garden by the beach theme to life – blue shown through behind the scenes with the UNH logo, the brides Carrie Bradshaw inspired shoes, and the ocean.
They kept things fun with personalized wrapped sliders as late night bites, childhood pictures hung, shark cookies as takeaways, Lizzo as a bridal party walkout song, and they might have been the only wedding registry with a chainsaw on it.
