Amber and Craig

Tell us about your day: Our wedding day turned out to be an absolutely perfect day in August. The temperature was ideal with a light breeze off the water. Our ceremony was right on the dock at Regatta Place. Guests remarked that the sun appeared just as we were saying our I Do’s. At the reception all of guests were smiling and truly enjoying the gorgeous views and good company. The staff at Regatta Place told us that we had the best dance floor they’d seen all summer thanks especially to DJ Derek Holt of Entertainment Specialists. We had several personal touches at our wedding that made it unique and showed our personalities. This included tables named after fishing boats in Galilee and a lobster trap card box to commemorate Craig’s previous job as a lobsterman out of Narragansett. The centerpieces and escort card holder were DIY. The bride’s veil, flower girl’s dress, and mother of the groom’s dress were all made by the groom’s aunt. The cupcakes were made by the groom’s cousin. The officiant was the uncle of the bride. The bouquets were wrapped in white rope to add to the nautical theme and the bride’s bouquet also included small charms with pictures of loved ones who had passed away. The entire evening was magical. Many people remarked that this was the nicest wedding they’d ever been to. We were very proud of how nice our wedding turned out because we put so much work into making it our own and it truly showed through.
