Marissa & Michael


June 18. 2016

Welcome to our wedding website! We absolutely cannot wait for the big day to finally arrive and feel so privileged to have the opportunity to spend such a special moment with all of our friends and family. As many of you likely know, Newport in June is very active so we suggest that our guests look into lodging options as early as possible.

Marissa & Michael


To tell our story correctly, I must start from the beginning. It was the fall of 2008 and Marissa and I were both seniors at the University of Rhode Island. Fortunately, my group of guy friends were becoming close friends with Marissa’s friends, which allowed me to get to know Marissa better. When I heard from one of her friends that she was interested in me, I must admit, I was a bit surprised. Maybe it was because I was a small-town guy from little Rhode Island and she was a fashionable, creative and beautiful girl from New Jersey. Anyways, I built the courage to ask her on a date and from there we never looked back. Fast forward to July 4, 2014, the day in which I asked Marissa to be my wife. Although it was one of the most important decisions of my young life, I never doubted whether it was the right decision as I couldn’t imagine a life without her. Even if that means a lifetime of coming home to a house full of crafts and antiques she calls “treasures” scattered about. Incredibly, it has been 7 years since that first date and our love for one another continues to grow and evolve. I can’t wait to start the next chapter of our lives and celebrate this new beginning with all of you!
