Sam and Anthony met through mutual friends in September, 2018. They had their first date with a group of good friends at the Malted Barley in Westerly, Rhode Island. On February 1st, 2020, Anthony surprised Sam by secretly arranging to have 60 of their friends and family at the Malted Barley and proposed to her!
They chose to be married at The Aria located in Connecticut. Beneath clear blue skies, the two read each other their handwritten vows during the ceremony. The venue was absolutely stunning with a beautiful ballroom that has a balcony and staircase where the bridal party and bride and groom were introduced. They have such a tight-knit group of friends and family that they had eleven bridesmaids and eleven groomsmen, most of which had been lifelong friends, met in college or are part of their families. Their large bridal party added a lot of fun to their wedding celebration! These two know how to throw a party! Their wedding is amongst one of my favorites and was filled with love, laughter, and lots of dancing.
