John Joseph and Karen-Lee D’Amato Sr. of Yucatan Dr., Warwick, announce the engagement of their daughter, Meghan Rose D’Amato, to Christopher Allegretta, son of Donna Allegretta of Ingersoll Ave., Warwick.
The bride-to-be is a graduate of Pilgrim High School and the University of Rhode Island. She is a registered nurse.
The groom-to-be is a graduate of Warwick Veterans Memorial High School and Rhode Island College. He is a staff sergeant in the Rhode Island Air National Guard.
Meghan and Chris met at an impromptu meeting five years ago at a local supermarket while they were in college. Two years later Chris proposed at the very same register where they met, with 100 employees and shoppers to witness. With their closest family and friends, the couple plans to celebrate their love for each other and for the state of Rhode Island with a nautical-themed Newport wedding in September 2014.
