The Backdrop of Their Love Story

Molly and Brendan’s story began in the halls of the University of Dayton, where a shared microbiology class sparked a connection that would grow into a profound bond. Their journey, filled with shared interests, long-distance challenges, and mutual support through medical training, led them to the scenic vistas of Rhode Island. Choosing Blithewold Mansion as their wedding venue was a nod to their love for natural beauty and historic charm, making it the perfect setting for their summer nuptials.
