It may sound like a fairy tale but our story is one. You never think that you'll meet your soulmate at the age of 17, but it was love at first sight ever since the day we met eyes in the hallway of high school. It had to be fate that Nick moved to Pelham senior year. After seeing eachother a few times in the hall one day Nick got the courage to ask Cathy Jo for her AOL screen name (remember this was 2004!). Cathy Jo saw Nick skateboarding after she got out from cheerleading practice and gave him a ride home one day. This is how it all began and we were pretty much inseperable since then. We have grown older with each other and have been through everything. Fast forward to 8 years later when Nick knew that it was the right time to finally tie the knot. When we say "I do" it will be almost 10 years that we have known eachother! We are both so excited to start this new chapter in our lives together.


We are looking forward to sharing this very special day with all of our family and friends! We wanted to make this day truly memorable which is why we chose a unique location that was not too far. We hope that you can all celebrate with us in gorgeous Newport, Rhode Island on Sunday June 22, 2014.

When I think back about the day I met Nick, I remember how instantly we connected. It's crazy to say but I felt like I knew him even though we just met. He really is my perfect match and brings out the best in me. I feel so lucky to have found someone so amazing in every way. I love that we've been able to grow and experience life together which has made us so much stronger. Nick truly completes me and I can't wait to marry my best friend!

Ever since day one I knew that Cathy Jo was perfect for me. I am so thankful everyday for meeting you back in high school. I can not imagine what life would be like without you by my side. Cathy Jo is the meaning of perfect. She has helped build me into the man that I am now. I look forward to spending every day of the rest of my life with such an amazing person and would never ask for more. She's the girl of my dreams and I love everything about her!


We hope that everyone will attend our Mass at St. Mary's Church in Bristol, RI and celebrate our love as we become husband and wife.

Belle Mer's glamourous and contemporary vibe provides the perfect venue for an exquisite oceanside wedding. Surrounded by over seven acres of manicured lawns on the edge of Narragansett Bay, Belle Mer epitomizes Newport society experience. Dressed in soft whites and sparkling crystals, Water Salon personifies sophistication and glamour.

We fell in love with the Belle Mer right away as it represents our style perfectly. We both wanted a destination wedding and loved that Newport was a destination still close enough for all our family and friends to be there with us. The setting here will take your breath away! We can't wait to party the night away with you!

Isabella has been my best friend since I was 17. She has always been there for me and is the person I turn to when I need advice. When Isabella and Nick's brother Joseph started dating (now married!) we became even closer. I'm so excited that we will soon officially be family as well!



You are the greatest brother in the world and you are the only guy I would ever want to be my best man on the day of my wedding. We have been through everything together and I love you so much. Thank you for always being there for me.



Mary is Nick's sister and she has always made me feel like family from the very beginning. I love her down to earth, warm personality and know she is always there to help me with anything and everything. I'm so lucky to have someone like you as my future sister!



Joseph is Cathy Jo's brother who I have known for quite some time now. I can't be more excited to have you in my family. You are a caring and great person. I appreciate everything that you do for me! Thanks for being my groomsman!



Sarah is also Nick's sister and I love how supportive she has always been of me and Nick which means so much to me. I know that I can always count on Sarah for honest advice or a good laugh. I can't wait to keep making more memories as we grow as a family together!



Jared is my sister Sarah's husband. Since the first day that I met him I knew he was a great guy. I can't want to build memories together as a family. Thank you for everything and for being my groomsman!



Bella is the most perfect dog anyone could ask for. She is so special to me and can't wait for her to make an appearance at the wedding :)



We have reserved a limited block of rooms at five hotels that are providing a wedding party discount. Since Newport, RI is an extremely popular summer destination so it is important that reservations are made early! The rooms saved for our wedding party will only be held until May 4th. Many hotels in Newport are very expensive so I have found hotels at reasonable prices in Middletown, RI which is only minutes from Newport.
