Our love story began in the spring of 2008. While we grew up 30 minutes apart from each other in the Boston area, we met thousands of miles across the world in Rome, Italy while studying abroad our junior year of college. Upon our return to the States we started dating. We went the distance, committed to each other while living apart for our senior year of college and several years following - Kara attending the University of Southern California in Los Angeles before moving to New York City and Mike attending Trinity College in Hartford before moving to Boston.
When traveling to each other grew tired, we decided to travel together to a new home. On Valentine's Day, 2016 we moved west to San Francisco, California and have loved every minute of exploring this beautiful state together. On the Fourth of July, 2017, Mike proposed to Kara in Sausalito, California on a private perch overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge. Needless to say, there were fireworks - and it felt like they were just for us. ;)
We are excited to bring the celebration back east and welcome our family and friends to join us as we tie the knot in beautiful Newport, Rhode Island, a special place to us both. We can't wait to toast our marriage with you!
Please help us kickoff the celebrations by joining us for Welcome Drinks at the Waterfront Pavilion at Gurney's Newport, Goat Island on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 8:00PM.
