Elizabeth Kimmell’s family roots are seriously southern—so much so that Joshua Snyder didn’t just ask her parents for their daughter’s hand in marriage; he asked her grandmother, too. But once the formalities were taken care of, all eyes moved north to Newport, Rhode Island, where the power couple—he’s a management consultant, she’s a fund-raiser—put together a red and navy wedding that celebrated the quaintness and quirks of their favorite Yankee town. “Newport is where we spent our first vacation, and where Josh proposed,” says Elizabeth. “We couldn’t think of a better spot to start our new life.”
