On March 23, 2010, nearly 30 friends and family gathered in Negril, Jamaica to celebrate the marriage of Eric Proulx and Brittany Bombard, of Tupper Lake.
The wedding took place at sunset in a gazebo on the ocean at Breezes Grand Negril resort. The bride, who wore a Maggie Sottero gown, was given away by her stepmother Susan Fuller-Bombard. Her father, the late James Bombard, was there in spirit.
Tiffany Kentile, the bride's sister, served as maid of honor and the groom's father served as best man. Bridesmaids included the groom's daughter, Kiersten Proulx, and the bride's best friends: Kylee Embt, Pamela Arsenault, Jessica Belleville and Tuesday Morehouse. The bridesmaids wore royal blue sundresses by Alfred Angelo and flip flops.
