Pamela Giron ’10 and Ryan Duffy ’10

Pam and Ryan at their 2010 graduation from URI

College sweethearts Pamela Giron ’10 and Ryan Duffy ’10 have URI to thank for their upcoming nuptials.* The couple met in front of the Memorial Union in 2006 during the first week of freshman year. On July 23, 2012, six years after their initial encounter, Ryan popped the question in front of Pamela’s favorite lighthouse, located in the Castle Hill area of Newport, RI. Pamela and Ryan will be tying the knot on March 16, 2013, a day that not only solidifies their love, but one that falls only a day shy of their favorite holiday, St. Patrick’s Day. The wedding will be held at their hometown church, St. Mary’s in Cranston, RI, with a celebration to follow at Belle Mer, located only a stone’s throw away from the place of their engagement. The entire weekend, full of “I do’s” and leprechaun garb, will be shared by friends and family, and many URI alumni as well.

* Pam and Ryan were married on March 16, 2013. We hope to update ClassPics with a wedding announcement soon!
