Elizabeth & Joshua

A New England Classic

By Jordan Staggs | Photography by Lisa Frechette

Picturesque Narragansett, Rhode Island, is the epitome of a classic New England coastal town, with its crescent-shaped beaches, marinas teeming with sailboats and fishing vessels, and the historic Narragansett Towers overlooking all.

At five thirty on the evening of September 14, 2012, Elizabeth Shriner and Joshua Rosenberg tied the knot, standing before family and friends on a lush green lawn overlooking the beach at the Dunes Club.

The couple met through a mutual friend the summer Elizabeth moved to Rhode Island; they began a fast friendship that budded into a New England romance. By the end of August that year, Elizabeth says, she and Josh had fallen in love.


“We wanted a low-key wedding where everyone had a wonderful time,” Elizabeth says. “Josh found a reggae version of the ‘Wedding March’ that I danced down the aisle to with the wind blowing in my hair.”

“We wanted a low-key wedding where everyone had a wonderful time.”

The posh yet fun affair included a unique ride for the bride—a 1910 Pope-Hartford Portola Roadster delivered Elizabeth to the ceremony. “The car is all brass, and only a few exist in the world,” she recalls. “I felt like a princess!”

The ceremony was preceded by a cocktail hour featuring a raw oyster bar on the lawn and was followed by a nautical-themed reception inside the Dunes Club. Seaside-inspired greens and blues brought the coast into the vaulted dining room of the beachside club.


Bouquets by Laurel Lane and gorgeous hydrangea topiaries created by the bride’s mother, Susan, from blooms donated by her neighbors in nearby Wickford Village lent a personal touch to the celebration, which lasted all weekend.

The newlyweds later ventured to Italy for a belated honeymoon, spending a wistful retreat exploring the city of Rome and the Amalfi Coast.

“I have to thank our families and friends for making our wedding such a fun and memorable time,” Elizabeth says. “I wouldn’t have changed a thing!”
