When is my wedding

The Proposal





We had our first date with some friends at the outdoor skating rink in downtown Providence. Since it was not long after Valentine's Day, a large lit-up heart remained at one end of the rink. So of course, as pictured on the left, we took a photo with it.

Four years later, we decided to return to the exact location of our very first date to celebrate our anniversary. Right before the proposal, someone was nice enough to take a photo of us with the heart since it was there once again.



Before leaving the rink to return home, we decided to get up close to the heart to take some photos along side it at the top of the steps. After Brenton got a few shots of Erin beside it, he pulled out from his jacket pocket a diamond ring, kneeled on one knee and proposed right beneath the heart! Some nearby observers congratulated us.

About Us



We met at Providence College during Erin's freshman year, which was Brenton's sophomore year. Our first encounter was during a Commencent for teachers outside on Slavin lawn at the beginning of September. Members of both the Pep Band and Concert Band played, and surely enough, both of us attended to play (Erin plays flute while Brenton plays trumpet). While not playing, we happened to sit near one another and joked around about how boring and tedious the ceremony was. This was only the beginning for us.

We grew to know each other even more through acquaintances as well as both being members of the Pep Band. Over of the course of the year, we grew to be close friends and enjoyed each others company.

In February of 2005, during Erin's sophomore year and Brenton's junior, we could no longer deny how compatible we were and how well we got along with one another, and therefore decided to take our relationship a step further by becoming a couple. We have been together ever since and now look forward to our future together!

About Brenton



Brenton spent a good portion of his childhood in Newtown, CT and graduated in 2002 at Oliver Ames High School in Easton, MA. Brenton graduated from Providence College in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Programming. He was a member of the PC Pep Band for four years.





About Erin

Erin spent most of her childhood and teenage years in Falmouth, MA and graduated Falmouth High School in 2003. At Providence College, she graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education. She was also a member of the Pep Band in addition to other various ensembles. Erin has been figure skating since Fourth Grade and now continues to skate on her free time as well as coach. She is looking forward to her third year of teaching music to K-2 students in Douglas, MA and plans to start her Masters within the next couple of years.

Only a couple weeks into the engagement and after searching seven different locations (in one day!) on the Cape, we booked our reception at the Brookside Club in Bourne, MA. This was the first place we went on our search, and almost instantly knew this was the right place. A day later Erin took Brenton to see for himself and he liked it too!

Hotel Accommodations


There are quite a few places to stay during your trip to the Cape. However, here are the few that we recommend if you would like to be nearby locations of the wedding. With June being the start of summer, the Cape becomes super busy during this time and there are only so many hotels in the area. There are also many weddings happening on that weekend.
