This past weekend, Jo and Mike finally tied the knot! Another terrific day of weather in lovely Newport. I have been working with Jo for about 18 months on her wedding. I know I say this all the time, but I am really honored to be a part of such a special day and Jo is no exception. We have shared a lot of laughs and bonding moments. Jo - you know you are now stuck with me as a friend!!! I also loved my time with her "Mummy" and meeting the rest of her family. This weekend I also met the wonderful groomsmen and many more friends of the couple. They were surrounded by a lot of love!
Did I mention that Jo LOVES details!! She had such a great vision and som many wonderful ideas. It was SOOOOO much fun to work with her!
This was such a fun wedding to be a part of! And not only was it so much fun for me, but I had such a wonderful team again!

I really enjoyed staying in Newport for the two weddings I coordinated. I was a little sad to leave my lovely little rental home on the "Point". What a great time to be there for Folk Festival and Jazz Festival!
