WEDDING | 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration at Glen Manor

When Rick and Carolyn got married they did not have a lot of time and money to host an extravagant gathering. So they had a nice celebration and hired a photographer. They promised themselves that if they made it to their 50th Anniversary, they would throw a big party. And that is exactly what they did.

They included  their two children and their families; their siblings and closest friends to celebrate their marriage at Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, RI with a delicious dinner by Blackstone Caterers and guests danced the night away by Nancy Paolino & The Black Tie Band.

Such a fun couple to work with!

Congratulations to you both! When asked what the secret to a successful marriage was, they said to “compromise” and “never go to bed angry.” Something I know I can always work on! haha
