Erin Noblet and Joshua Quinn met at Mews Tavern in Wakefield, when they were there with mutual friends in the winter of 2010. Josh was not living in Rhode Island at the time, and Erin was planning to move to Colorado. But soon the pair, who share a love for the outdoors, bonded over long hikes in the mountains, snowmobiling and camping.
Josh, a wildland firefighter, popped the question to Erin, who now works for an aviation company, while the pair was on a snowmobile trip to a back country yurt in Mirror Lake, Utah, in April 2014. His perfect plans went awry when the tire of the trailer they were using to transport the snowmobile had to be replaced, and then late season conditions led their snowmobile to sink in the snow and blow a belt, all while a storm was rolling in. “We loaded up the snowmobile and our gear in the car, and before we headed out, he got down on one knee and asked me for my hand in marriage,” Erin says. “Of course, I said yes!”
They were living in Utah as they planned the wedding, but decided the wedding would be in South County, where they grew up. Noblet is the daughter of Jon and Karen Noblet of Narragansett; Quinn the son of Kevin and Lee Ann Quinn of Wakefield.
They were married at the stables at South County Museum in Narragansett. “The stables reminded me of Ireland and we are both very Irish,” Erin says. “We love the beach scene as well!”
Erin wore a satin gown with a long train and lace overlays and beading. “It fit perfectly, needed no alterations,” she says. “The price was right and I loved the train and details.” The bridegroom wore a gray suit and blue shirt, while the groomsmen wore gray suits, white shirts and a tie that matched one of the seven colors worn by the bridesmaids, each dressed in a different color found in a peacock feather.
The style was rustic, with floral arrangements of hydrangeas, roses, stephanotis and greens. The reception was held at Aqua Blue in Narragansett, where the tables were decorated with centerpieces made from wood from the West and East coasts. Their wedding cake featured mountains and trees, showing their love of the West.
After honeymooning in Athens and Santorini, Greece, the couple lives in McCall, Idaho.
