That said, if you would like to give a gift, we would be honored to receive anything that you wish to give. If you would like an idea for a gift, we ask that you consider giving the gift of experience. We will be traveling for our honeymoon in the weeks following the wedding.

About Us

Proposal

After eight and a half years, Dan told Amy that he wanted to do something special for New Year's Eve. He instructed her to buy a ball gown and refused to divulge any additional information. On New Year's Eve, Dan drove Amy to Newport, RI. He took her to Belcourt Castle for a small black tie benefit, which included a deliciously prepared dinner, a 25-piece live Swing Band, and a fantastic party. After dinner, Dan found a lovely little place down by the armor room and confessed that he wasn’t there just to wine and dine Amy. He asked her to marry him and, unbeknownst to both of us, a small crowd had formed and applauded us. The owner of the castle, Mrs. Tinney, was thrilled to find out that we were engaged in her home. She said, "I have been thinking of ways to get people to remember my home that my beloved late husband built. Now I know that you will never forget it." At midnight, she brought us up to the front of the crowd, made a toast to us, and our story made it to the local paper! It was magical!

About Us

Our Story

Dan had been invited to an annually occurring party at his friend Bob's house (who is now a dear friend to both of us), aptly named "Bobapalooza." Amy's friend, Greg (also a dear friend to both of us), invited her to go the same party.

Once there, Amy noticed the cutest boy at the party sitting by the fire pit listening to the band. Amy asked Greg to introduce him to her. Greg proved to be the best wingman ever.

Dan fretted for a day as to how to ask Amy out on a date. He called her many times but never left a voicemail, Finally, after a day of phone calls, Amy picked up the phone and they had their first date that night.

That was September, 2002! The rest is history.

Our wedding will take place on August 14th, 2012 and we will be staying at the Villa San Crispolto between August 11-18th, 2012.

You are so very important to us and we would like to be able to celebrate this special event with you. We will also be having a casual, stateside reception after the wedding for anyone who may, or may not, be able attend our ceremony in Italy.
