I had never been to Newport, much less Belle Mer, before Kiara and Peter’s wedding. We took the train up and as we neared Rhode Island I knew that I was going to love it there. I was completely enamored with the light, the landscapes, and the beautiful dark blue ocean. More than that I was enamored with Kiara and Peter. Sometimes you meet people and you just love them from the start – and that was how I felt from the first time Kiara grabbed me in a huge hug before her rehearsal dinner. I’m not a huge fan of overt gushing on wedding blogs (seriously, not every wedding can feature The Greatest Love of All Time or The Best Wedding Ever!) but I am a fan of overt gushing about good, kindhearted people who love their families and each other. Kiara and Peter are just that and the entire weekend was so warm and enveloping that I didn’t want to leave!
Kiara and Peter, there are no words. Getting to know you both has been an exceptional treat. Kiara, hearing about how you fell in love with Peter so sweetly mirrored my relationship with my husband. Peter, hearing you talk about Kiara and how you love her was simply inspiring. Thank you for letting me get to know your friends and your family. Thank you for friending me on Facebook so that I can love you even more while watching you do adorable things like ride your horse and hug your family. Documenting your day was a joy. Thank you.
