Wedding Date: July, 26, 2013
Margaret Ruth Parkin and Eric John Nappy are a genuine “North meets South” love story! They met six years ago when Margaret’s parents moved to Gainesville, Florida from Nashua, New Hampshire, where Meg was born and raised. Meg is a self-proclaimed New Englander, and eventually became a University of Rhode Island nursing student. Eric, on the other hand, was a Sports Management major at the University of Florida, where he was a champion football player. He also went on to attain his master’s degree from the University of South Carolina.
Eric and Megan began dating a couple of years later when they were both guests at her sister Katie’s wedding on Valentine’s Day of 2009. They had both graduated and Meg was working as an oncological nurse in bone marrow transplantation at Mt. Sinai in NYC, while Eric was employed at Indiana State. After three years of working in different states with their families in Florida, which caused them to zig zag around the east coast to meet up, they decided to move closer to each other. Eric got a job at the University of New Hampshire and Meg began working at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston as an oncology bone marrow transplant nurse.
The couple bought a condo in Portsmouth New Hampshire, got engaged, and planned their wedding for July 26, 2013 in Newport, Rhode Island. With a romantic New England wedding in mind, the couple chose the mass to be held at Salve Regina University Chapel and the reception at Rosecliff Mansion, an idyllic locale set amidst the gorgeous Cliff Walk along the Atlantic Ocean. As fate would have it, right after their honeymoon in Antiqua, Eric landed a dream job of Associate Athletic Director at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville. Not straying far from their roots, Margaret and Eric currently live happily in Northern Florida.
