"We got engaged on a fall trip to Martha’s Vineyard in October 2013 on Long Point (in the company of a happy seal) and celebrated that evening at Neil's favorite restaurant, State Road."

"Mom wrote the name of a family member or one of the wedding party on each towel, with the date of the wedding and Chris’s and my names. After the wedding she separated the towels and handed them out to each person so they could use them to go to the beach."

Barbara Murphy

"We asked if we could do some tricks — a fly by and barrel roll. Mike said no, and explained to us that we would have to wear the head gear and a parachute in order to do any tricks. Mike thought for sure that I as the bride wouldn't have any of that...I shrugged my shoulders and said okay."
