Kristen and Eric had the biggest wedding ever at Belle Mer in Newport, RI. We didn’t think it was possible to have this many friends, but if you meet Kristen and Eric, you’d absolutely understand why people want to be around them. They are so much fun! If you needed proof look at the dancing photos from their reception! Enough said. After we posted some sneak peek pictures from the wedding on our social media, we got tons of messages from people saying they wish they were friends with them. Same!
Even their dog, Jackson, couldn’t stand to be away from them for a moment! He, of course, couldn’t have stolen the show from that beautiful bride, but he got a lot of laughs when he ran down the aisle after the formal processional.
Eric and Kristen planned one of the most beautiful tributes to a passed loved one we’ve ever seen at a reception. Eric lost his mother to cancer. In her memory he and his mother’s best friend danced to the song “Drops of Jupiter,” which was written by someone who lost their mom to cancer. Eric’s mother must have been an incredible person to have inspired such a beautiful moment. And after spending the day with Eric and listening to the way his friends talk about him, we know that he must have been a truly wonderful son.
We have no doubt that just like his mom, Eric and Kristen will lead a full life together that will inspire others for generations to come! Happy everything, Eric and Kristen!
