It’s that time again! Time for me to get to share another wonderful story from another wonderful and super sweet customer. If this is your first time here I’ll fill you in quickly. A few weeks back I decided I would like to do a feature on my blog where I share some of the stories I get blessed to hear. It just didn’t seem fair to keep them all to myself. To read a bit more check out my initial story here.
This week I get to share Laura’s story. A while back she ordered 2 Rhode Island necklaces as bridesmaid gifts and a couple of weeks ago she sent me a follow up email with beautiful photos of her bridesmaids wearing the necklaces. I immediately asked if I could share the photos and also a bit of the back story. So I will let her take it away!
(The bride and groom-so cute!)
Keith proposed to me in January of 2011, and although I was never the type of girl who had all the details of her wedding planned out from age 10, I knew right away where we would be tying the knot. Growing up in Rhode Island, I spent all of the summers of my youth at my grandparents beach house in Quonachontong (Quonnie) , RI. The place is very special to my family, and after Keith and I started dating he began joining me on my weekends trips to Rhode Island each summer.
What you have to realize about Rhode Island is that everyone outside of the state thinks it’s a “big” joke. A place you drive through to get somewhere else. The armpit of Massachusetts. Etc. Etc. Keith instantly fell in love with my tiny state, and agreed that Quonnie was the only place for us to get hitched.
(Gifting the necklaces to the bridesmaids)
When it came time for the impossible task of choosing bridesmaids I knew I wanted to pick 2 girls who had an equal love for the location and shared all my memories of growing up there. My cousin, Charlotte, and childhood friend, Janna, both fit the bill.
I began thinking about a unique and meaningful gift for the two of them, and decided it had to be something that represented our roots. I searched “Rhode Island” on Etsy and instantly fell in love with your necklaces. When I received them in the mail I was blown away by the quality and craft. They are unique, well-crafted, and most importantly represent something of great meaning to us!
What a beautiful bride and such thoughtful gifts. I was blown away at how gorgeous the necklaces looked on these ladies. Thank you Laura for sharing a bit of your story with all of us today!
