REAL WEDDINGS: Michelle and Rory at Castle Hill Inn

Michelle and Rory describe themselves as devoted teammates. Says the bride, “though born and raised 3,000 miles apart, we quickly realized we had values and dreams in common, which grew into a relationship that can best be described as easy, organic, happy and truly loving.” Michelle and Rory were married on May 24, 2013 at the beautiful Castle Hill Inn in Newport.
