Stacy and Eddy were one of the first couples to celebrate their nuptuals at Shepherd’s Run in South Kingstown, whose rustic simplicity repsented the two perfectly.

The Meet Cute: In November 2012, Eddy and Stacy crossed paths at the now closed Paragon Viva in Providence. After talking and downing some drinks, the two continued the conversation in the car. 

The Engagement: Eddy came up with a few ways he wanted to propose to Stacy during their trip to Iceland in October 2018. He was going to have an elaborate prank/proposal involving TSA pulling him aside and alarming Stacy – “That’s where I would propose to kick off the trip engaged, but that idea got knocked down,” Eddy says. A couple days into the trip, he figured that Diamond Beach was the perfect location. Their friend Rui joined them for the trip and was (unbeknownst to Stacy) the designated photographer for the special moment. “We had a spot to ourselves on the beach, posed for a picture, and that’s when I dropped down on one knee and said some romantic words,” says Eddy. “Words I don’t remember because I blacked out from excitement,” Stacy adds.

The First look: Before the first look, Stacy had been anxious about a number of things: traffic on the way to the venue, getting there on time, etc. Finally, in the Beatrix Ferrand Walled Garden at Shepherd’s Run, the bride took a deep breath at the gates and the Move Mountains Co. team guided her through the moment. “It was crazy to finally be at that moment after having postponed the wedding several times because of the pandemic, and I couldn’t believe we were finally there,” says Stacy. “A lot of my emotions came out during the first look so it wasn’t all built up during the ceremony.”

The Venue: Eddy and Stacy were one of the first couples to host their wedding at Shepherd’s Run; around the time they said “Yes” to the venue, the grounds were still in the construction phase. They trusted the design plans, and they couldn’t have been happier with the result. “Susan Denice, the general manager, showed us the blueprints and renderings of the vision,” says Eddy. “We had to put a lot of trust into their crew and what they were focusing on building.” Once the beautiful night was complete, the two agreed that the venue “Ended up representing us more as a couple than our original venue,” says Stacy, describing the rustic and elegant simplicity of the property.

The Highlights: Having the property to themselves for the night was an added bonus for the couple. “After the wedding, it felt like it didn’t end,” says Eddy. “The reception was done, but we had a beautiful suite to ourselves, everybody that was close to us was there. Also the staff was great, the wedding coordinator was super helpful and Susan was lovely.”

The Advice: “The build-up is stressful because you have so many things on your list you’re trying to take care of, but that buildup is important because all the work you’re putting in is going to turn out to be a magical night,” says Eddy. “Make sure you have that special moment with one another, it makes the night even more complete.
