Aqua Blue Inn Wedding Narragansett RI
Julie and Pat’s Aqua Blue Inn wedding in Narragansett RI was a super fun and laid-back day. Many thanks to Julie and Pat’s planning and organization! Their day started by getting ready at the hotel, then we went to the beach for a first look and portrait time. Julie and Pat’s beautiful ceremony was on Aqua Blue’s deck which looks out towards the ocean. Lucky for us the night ended with Narragansett’s Labor Day weekend fireworks as well as some spectacular dancing by all!
We had a great time with you both! Thank you for involving us with your special day.

How did you both meet?
Julie: “Pat and I met when we were in High School back in 2002. We had been in the same grade at the same school for years but had never officially met until Memorial Day weekend our junior year. I ended up going to Narragansett Beach where Pat happened to be working as a parking lot attendant. We hit it off and starting dating immediately after. Even though we broke up when I moved to Boston for college, we dated on and off the whole time I was there. We finally realized that there was a reason we kept coming back to each other. I moved back to Rhode Island in 2012 and we’ve been in it for the long haul ever since. Our wedding pictures, ceremony, and reception all took place right across the street from the beach where we first met!”
What was the most memorable part of your wedding day?
Julie: “The most memorable part for me was how genuinely happy I was all day. I don’t think I’ve ever felt that kind of extreme happiness before; it really was the best day of my life. Everything turned out perfect…I kept having to pinch myself to make sure it was all real. I usually hate being the center of attention and was worried I was my nerves would get the best of me. As soon as I saw Pat, all my nerves washed away. There could have been one person at our ceremony or there could have been hundreds and I wouldn’t have known the difference, all I could focus on was Pat. I also loved seeing how much fun all of our guests were having. The dance floor was packed the entire night!

Pat: “The most memorable part was the first look nothing could top that.”
What was the funniest?
Julie: “Pat had two best men and they prepared a joint speech. Even though they had rehearsed it before, you could tell they have all been best friends for a long time because their comedic timing and delivery was spot on. They played off of each other perfectly and had all of our guests cracking up.”
Pat: “The funniest part was the dance floor.”
Advice for future couples?
Julie: “I know it’s so cliché to say, but honestly, don’t sweat the small stuff and enjoy the day! It all goes by so fast that you aren’t going to have time to worry about if all the little details came together or not. One way to make sure the day goes smoothly is to pick vendors that you truly feel comfortable working with, even if it costs a little more out of pocket. It was so nice having the piece of mind knowing that all the important details were in the hands of people we could trust.”
Pat: “The advice I would give is whatever your wife says goes, haha.”
