Kaitlin E. Mullen Married to Zachery E. Holme
Kaitlin Elizabeth Mullen and Zachery Everett Holme were married July 1, 2017 at St. Romuald Chapel located in the small coastal town of Matunuck, RI, where the bride's family has spent summer vacations for four generations.
The bride is the daughter of Cynthia and David Mullen of Seekonk and granddaughter of Charlene and Joseph Mullen of Seekonk, and the late Joan and Thomas Walsh of Campus, IL. The groom is the son of Maria and Mark Holme of Seekonk and grandson of Carol and Tony DeCubellis of Pawtucket, RI and Rachel and Robert Holme of Rehoboth, MA.
The bride had five co-maids of honor: Caroline Degnan of Rumford, RI, Rachel Gregorek of Seekonk, Jenny Salit of Seekonk, Hannah Smith of Monticello, IL, and Lauren Walsh of Austin, TX. Fiona Degnan of Rumford, RI, age 2, was the flower girl. Seth Holme of Seekonk, the groom's brother, was the best man. Michael Mullen, Brendan Mullen, and Kevin Mullen of Seekonk, the brothers of the bride, were all groomsmen, along with the groom's close friend Chris Morse of Seekonk.
The tented reception was held at Farmhouse by the Sea and formal portraits were taken at Theatre by the Sea, where the rehearsal dinner was held. Michael Mullen and Seth Holme proposed toasts to the newlyweds on behalf of each family; Brendan Mullen baked the homemade "wedding pie", which the couple cut in place of a wedding cake.
The newlyweds honeymooned on Block Island, bringing their vintage mopeds, which they have restored and ridden together since first dating. They went on a second honeymoon in August where they rented an '84 camper van and traveled the Rocky Mountains.
The couple lives in Seekonk in their first home, built in 1886, which they hope to continue to restore and live in for years to come.
