East Providence Residents Tie the Knot


Nearly five years ago and thousands of miles away from home, two New Englanders met the love of their lives.

Julianne Peixoto was a junior at Syracuse University studying Broadcast and Digital Journalism. Daniel Lima was also in his third year at Williams College, and was studying Economics and Psychology.

The two met in January 2013 while studying abroad in Madrid, Spain. Walks in Parque del Retiro lead to Real Madrid futbol games, late nights in the discotecas, and trips to Palma de Mallorca. Before they knew it, it was time to fly home and begin their relationship in the United States.

Julianne grew up in Dighton, MA, and Dan was born in Naugatuck, CT. They dated long-distance as they finished college and earned their degrees. Jules got a job as a television news anchor and reporter in upstate New York, while Dan was placed in Providence as a high school mathematics teacher with Teach For America. For two years, they took turns driving five hours each way to visit each other, until Jules got a job at WPRI-TV in East Providence, and Dan switched careers to become a financial advisor at Morgan Stanley’s Providence branch.

Dan and Jules got married on August 12, 2017. They moved in together the next day, and are happily starting their married life in East Providence.
