Molly and Dillon were the first couple to entrust us to help them with their wedding, so it only felt right for their wedding to be the first we recapped! These two hold a very special place in our hearts as the first C&E couple.
Molly & Dillon went to the same high school, but they started dating in college when Molly went to visit a mutual friend. Their connection was something special from the beginning. Dillon proposed on a quiet Monday evening in the couple’s home. It was the perfect proposal – heartfelt, deeply personal, and the perfect surprise.
These two wanted an intentional and personalized wedding day to share with their friends and family in their new hometown of Newport, RI. Molly got ready with her bridesmaids the Wyndham Long Wharf Hotel, while Dillon got ready with his groomsmen at their home a few miles away. They opted not to do a first look, so they met each other at the altar Trinity Church in downtown Newport.
They ultimately chose the Regatta Place for their reception. Guests had a quick trip from the church to the Regatta Place in the Newport Trolley (such a fun touch!). They had a beautiful reception with views of Newport Harbor under the Regatta’s iconic cream and white striped tent. They opted for a neutral color palate, with the bridesmaids in light grey and groomsmen in navy suits with light blue accents throughout. They selected floral that would match the airy feel of the venue - white floral with lots of greenery! Each centerpiece consisted of a gold lantern, greenery, white floral accents, and lots of candles to set the mood. Their gold chivari chairs and white linen complimented the overall décor perfectly. Favors included a mini pot of local honey set at each seat.
You could feel the love surrounding these two! Their closest friends and family were greeted with delicious food and drinks, along with an amazing sunset. They laughed, drank, and danced the night away. Sending the happiest of anniversary wishes to Dillon and Molly as they celebrate their 3rd anniversary today!
