A luxurious Castle Hill Inn wedding in Newport, Rhode Island

An unexpected love story

As told by Amanda & Vinny:

"We met in November 2010 in Turks & Caicos, where our families were vacationing separately. Amanda actually met Vinny's sister Missy first - in the bathroom of a bar! Missy made it her mission for us to get to know each other. After Turks & Caicos, we kept in touch for a couple of years. Two years later, we finally decided to give dating a try. We would take the train back and forth on weekends from New York and Boston. After grad school, Vinny decided to move up to Boston. We moved in together a year later, and were engaged October 2016!"

Fast forward to this misty June day at Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Rhode Island. Amanda & Vinny both said that it didn’t feel real! That’s because they had one UNBELIEVABLE wedding - thousands of roses, lush flower arrangements, modern chandeliers, a swoon-worthy satin dress, oceanside cliffs, and even late night Milk Bar truffles! They scaled cliffs, went off-roading in an oversized golf cart, kissed by a charming lighthouse, shared a meal at a grand head table, and hit the dance floor with their friends and family. Here’s to a lifetime of love and happiness for A&V!
