The task of planning a wedding in Rhode Island from Texas would have been daunting if it hadn’t been for Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara, wedding planner and owner of Unique Weddings by Alexis, who Jennifer refers to as a “life-saver.” She says, “I am horrible at making decisions, and Alexis’ recommendations were always spot on with what I wanted. I could babble on about my vision, and she created it more beautiful than I could imagine.”
And it wasn’t all calm seas. After choosing to have the wedding at Castle Hill because of their tent, the venue unveiled a new tent with a different aesthetic, which made the destination-bride a little nervous. But Alexis knew just what to do. “The fabric swaging really helped soften the space. And we had the old chandeliers brought back for this wedding too, the new ones were just too modern for this bride,” says Alexis.
Jennifer was more than happy. “After months of worrying, the big reveal finally came and I was pleasantly surprised! It was light, airy and much more spacious. It had just a beautiful fairytale feel to it,” she says. “It was simply a dream to have our wedding there.”
