Beauty and the Cop…

It’s okay.  I’m a police officer.  Mind if we borrow your bouncy slide? 

You know good times are ahead when the wedding party crashes a kid’s birthday party at Goddard Park!  That’s right, following our formals, the shoes were kicked off and the jackets laid aside to burn off some energy on a giant slide.  It was irresistable!

Wedding Shoes, on and off


The day started at Nicole’s house, full house, full of her closest friends and family reveling in her big day. You could feel the excitement building as she was tied into that stunning mermaid wedding gown.  In no time it was time to hop onto the Newport Trolley.

Getting Ready for the Wedding

Following the ceremony at St. Joseph’s Church in West Warwick, back on the trolley to Goddard Park.  Nicole, a dental hygienist, has an incredible smile that just lights up a room.  Jose, a Providence police officer … well, the way he lights up when he looks at his new wife, that could light up an entire city.  You can just tell he married the love of his life.  And so did she.

The Bride and Groom

Nicole and Jose put a lot of thought into their wedding details.   The orange and purple flowers and the purple vests and bridesmaids dresses absolutely popped against the early autumn backdrop.

 And this bride and groom put as much thought into making sure their guests had as good a time as they would.  The Mariachi band entertained guests during cocktail hour at the Quonset O Club.  And it was great to see Marcia from Boston Cigar Factory.   Jose even got a free rolling lesson from the master!   And the World Premier Band kept that dance floor bumping and jumping all night long!

But I think the highlight of the evening was the father-daughter dance.  What started out as a sweet ode to daddy’s little girl erupted into a wild choreographed montage through the years – we’re talking Thriller, Dirty Dancing, and oh, yeah, leg warmers and Flashdance!  Nobody puts Nicole in a corner!  She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor.  And I suspect dad was dancing like he never did before!  Check out a clip here.  My husband, Bruce, Unique Video Productions captured the jaw-dropping grooves.

 Nicole and Jose, what an amazing couple the two of you are.  Bruce and I wish you all the happiness in the world.  You have both married into wonderful families, your friends are amazing, and the care you took to make sure everyone had a great time on 10/1/11 is a testament to your own generosity, your big hearts, and your warm personalities.  Thank you.  xxoo Michele
