Newport Beach House Wedding | Jaci & Brian | Lefebvre Photo

"It was May 24, 2011 when we met, the Sunday before Memorial Day. The day started as a very foggy but warm day at ABC Club on 1st Beach in Newport, RI. Jaci was with her NYC friends and Brian was with his Boston friends. After we shared some cocktails and frolicked in the ocean we ended the night in the rooftop hot tub at the Newport Beach Hotel & Suites with a bottle of champagne. The following morning we realized Brian left his iPhone in Jaci’s purse so she brought it down to him. If not for his phone, he may never have hitched a ride back to NYC and bribed his way into a dinner date that night at David Burke’s Garden and Treehouse Bar at the James Hotel, which was the start of our romance.

Nearly four years later on April 18, 2015 we visited that restaurant again for the second time and that’s where he proposed! One week before Brian proposed, we found out that the ABC Club had been bought by Longwood Events who would transforming the venue into The Newport Beach House. It seemed to be that fate determined our wedding location! After checking it out and hearing Longwood's vision, we took a leap of faith and booked a date. The incredible part is we will be exchanging vows in the SAME place our tables were the very day we met!" - Jaci
