Colleen and Ike met when Colleen was living in Syracuse, NY. She had just moved there from San Diego in April of 2005 because of her work.
Being a huge fan of Dave Matthews Band, a co-worker took her to one of their shows at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center that July. He suggested that she meet this guy, Ike, who was on the crew. They met and immediately hit it off!
Proceeding much text messaging, he insisted that she go down to NYC to watch another show. It was such an unbelievable day on Randall’s Island that, from that day on, they were inseparable. She would visit him all over the country that summer while he was on tour and when he finished touring in September, she visited him at his winter home in Killington, VT. That lifestyle continued for two years and then after her promotion, they bought a home Providence, RI.
The happy couple's entire love story is going to be featured in the upcoming issue of Newport Wedding Magazine, which should be on shelves in December, 2009 for the 2010 season.
Colleen and Ike were married on May 9th, 2009 at OceanCliff and it was such a fresh and exciting day full of love and fun ... I hope that every day of their lives together is just as wonderful as their wedding day!

OceanCliff was extremely accommodating in helping the couple include their two "children" (aka; Siberian huskies) on the big day ... that was a HUGE priority for both Colleen and Ike because the two pups vacate enormous parts of their hearts and lives!
The placards sported images of their sweet little pooches!
The couple live a responsible rock-star lifestyle, as do their friends ... sooooooo, they decided to supply more edibles at 11pm before their send-off.

Ike has such a penchant for Petron that it became the inspiration for a very special cake.
It was also sewn throughout the entire wedding day design.
