Karen and Justin at Belle Mer – Newport, RI

When I was contacted to do Karen and Justin’s wedding on October 10th, 2010 (10/10/10) , I knew that it was suppose to be a lucky day. Oh man, was I right! I was so lucky to have Karen and Justin as a couple, they were positively great!

So how did the day start?  I met up with Karen at the Hyatt in Newport, RI while Karen was getting ready. Kristin Greene was already there doing Karens makeup and thats when the day began. Not long after that, we headed to Belle Mer for the ceremony!

Karen and Justin said “I Do” outdoors on Belle Mer’s lawn during the day, and it was such a perfect day for a wedding! The rings and the vows were exchanged, and Justin kissed his new bride. Everyone was more than happy for them as they walked back down the aisle, now officially wed. Check out the socks.. purple argyle sox!

I thought that the purple was going to end at the socks, but man was I wrong! The entire room was covered in purple accents!  It is safe to say Karen loves purple.  I knew I was going to be lucky because of the great couple I had, but I didn’t think I was going to be THIS lucky. They made my job fun with their welcoming family and more then enough smiles to go around. There were tears, smiles and laughs. People yelled lyrics to songs and clapped as loud as they could after speeches.

Here is something very important but very interesting:  Justin is a jeweler so I was not surprised when Karen had one beautiful ring on her hand.  The hardware Justin had on his hand was to perfection and oh did I mention that Karen was sporting custom made purple earrings that Justin had made for her to wear on their wedding day?

Karen’s cousin came into Justin’s shop to purchase an engagement ring for his soon to be wife.  They both hit if off and became friends.  Of course Karen’s cousin introduced Justin to Karen and the rest is 101010 history.  It is safe to say Karen got the family approval.

Karen all that family traveling/moving when you where younger paid off because now you get to build your family roots here in Rhode Island with your husband Justin.  Congrats to both of you!

No detail was left undone! The bride’s flair

All the best to Karen and Justin! Thank you for making my 10/10/10 truly spectacular!
