More than a third of marriages between 2005-2012 began online and are apparently happier & longer lived, according to the University of Chicago. Yup, no shame here! Regina and Rich are a super happy success story from match.com.
Regina grew up in Norton, Mass where she and her bridesmaids gathered to get ready. I had a chance to speak with Regina’s dad and check out his man cave, a room dedicated to history with an impressive collection of artifacts from revolutionary air horns to original volumes of Shakespeare.
Dad emerged from his hiding area long enough to get changed and have a healthy dose of estrogen as the ladies transformed.
Meanwhile, boys will be boys, and not a moment was wasted at the hotel as the groomsmen rallied with matching socks and the cutest ring bearer in Foxborough!
Continuing a streak of rainy Saturdays, Rich and Regina’s plans for the Cranberry Bog weren’t going to be realized no matter how many umbrellas we had. The first look was no less special indoors.
Rich and Regina are a super unique couple who aren’t afraid to show their true colors and laugh. Their friends fall right in line with laughs, love and plenty of goofiness.
The rain paused just long enough for us to find an outdoor spot overlooking Patriot Stadium before being told we were in a restricted area. Oops! We jumped at the break in the weather to dash over to the bog for some couple shots!
The only thing missing was Rich and Regina’s pup Troy! A slight breeze swept through carrying Regina’s veil behind her. Rich helped out when the wind died so we could get “that shot.”
The rain came back and ended our fun. But really it was just beginning. Back at the hotel the ballroom was glowing with syrup from Ben’s Sugar Shack, fall leaves and smells of a fantastic feast.
The dress was bustled, and the party began!
Yeah, that’s Rich’s mom! Now you can see where Rich gets it from. This was his rendition of cutting the cake!
Between the photo booth, DJ, great group of fun loving people and a rainy night, nothing stood between this group and a good time! What a fantastic celebration before sending the happy couple off for a honeymoon in St. Lucia! Congrats to the happy 1/3!
