“When you first walked in [to the RIWG Bridal Brunch] they handed you a mimosa (my type of bridal show already), and we were treated to passed and stationary hors d’oeuvres. There was absolutely no pressure to talk to anyone. Essentially it was just a cocktail hour so you could walk around, talk to some other couples, some vendors if you wanted to and have fun.” Amanda and Adam

“The Rhode Island Wedding group exceeded our expectations. Curtiss captured every moment possible, Mike’s videography has us at the edge of our seats waiting for our video (we saw a very small glimpse of what is to come, that night) and Luke kept our guests as well as us on the dance floor all night.” Lindsey and Patrick
