Sarah Jane Wyman of Manchester, New Hampshire and Shaun La Gala of Clifton, New Jersey are set to wed at the Providence Public Library on October 12, 2018.
Shaun and I met at Johnson & Wales University in 2008! Shaun was friends with my roommate Daina. He would come to hang out in our dorm room, but thought I was the ‘weird roommate’! It took a good year and a half for him to start to like me, and from there a romance began to blossom. We officially began dating in 2011 when he asked me to be his girlfriend on snow-covered Benefit Street! 🙂
We did the long-distance thing for a few years after graduation (New Hampshire to New Jersey) before I finally moved to NJ to be with Shaun. We live in Clifton with our dog Blizzie, and both work in New York City.
As for our wedding, we knew we wanted it to be in a meaningful location — somewhere both of our families (some in New Hampshire, some in New Jersey) could easily travel to. Therefore, Providence, Rhode Island seemed like the perfect spot!
We also recently had our engagement photos taken in Providence. Shaun had proposed in Prospect Terrace Park overlooking the city, so we started with a few shots there! We then moved down to Benefit Street, where we had lived for a year. From there, we ended at the WaterFire Basin.
