Sarah & Evan at Glen Cove Mansion

Sarah & Evan September 2, 2018

When we asked Sarah and Evan to answer a few questions to help us write a blog about their wedding, they came back with such beautifully written perfection.  We couldn’t find it in us to change a single word.  Here is what they wrote about how they met, their proposal and their spectacular wedding day.

Sarah was an angel - a truly radiant angel. And Evan was a young, hotshot cowboy... it was Halloween, by the way. Just a couple of New York University college students finding love by accident and sharing a brief "Hi, nice to meet you," before getting swept away by their respective friends at the crowded party. The next day, Evan took a chance and sent Sarah a message to try to get to know more about her than just her name. After exchanging messages back and forth for nearly 6 hours that day, Evan invited Sarah to meet his roommate's puppy that night, and they never looked back.

Evan anticipated a beautiful spring day in late April for his and Sarah’s first picnic of the season. On the date of choice, they awoke to an unexpectedly rainy day. Despite that Evan hates the rain, he insisted upon keeping their picnic plans, as the ring was burning a hole in his pocket and he just couldn’t wait any longer. Sarah was a bit confused as to why Evan was firmly insisting that they keep their picnic plans in the inclement weather, but she went along with it anyway. By the time they arrived at Carl Schurz Park, the rain had lightened up to just a mist and the cherry blossoms were in full bloom, creating a beautiful backdrop for the big moment. Evan presented a scrapbook commemorating the five years of their relationship, the last page of which displayed caricatures of Evan down on one knee, proposing to Sarah. Sarah then put the book down to find real-life Evan down on one knee! After allowing Sarah a few moments to sob, Evan confirmed that Sarah accepted his proposal and they popped some bubbly, ate some cheese, and were too elated to even notice the drizzle around them anymore. 

The wedding day was truly a dream come true! Rain was supposed to ruin another special, momentous day for them, but thankfully, they were graced with a gorgeous summer day. The ceremony felt like a fairy tale, complemented by sunny skies, friends and family, and floral arrangements that perfectly fulfilled Sarah’s vision. The reception was equally stunning and unforgettable, from their Foo Fighters first dance, to the cotton candy-filled finale, and everything in between.

It was a day filled with so much love and joy, and we truly would not change a thing!

Congratulations Sarah & Evan, and thanks for doing my writing work for me!

Marisa & Jeremy at Woodbury Jewish Center

Marisa & Jeremy     March 3, 2018

Marisa & Jeremy met at Syracuse University but did not start dating until after they both graduated and Marisa was worn down by Jeremy’s persistence.  After a few years of dating, Jeremy proposed to Marisa atop one of Yosemite National Park’s mountains complete with a private chef dinner and photo shoot to capture the special moment.  Jeremy then surprised Marisa further by having their friends and family surprise Marisa to celebrate their engagement back home after their trip.

Marisa describes their wedding as the best day of their lives.  Despite the Nor’easter that threatened the area the day before, they were calm, cool and collected on their big day.  They truly soaked up every second of their wedding from the early morning of getting ready until their very last song during their wild Syracuse themed after party. 

“We did not stress any small detail and we made our main focus on having fun and enjoying ourselves.  We had an unbelievable team to work with the day of our wedding and we couldn’t have done it without them!”  Marisa & Jeremy

Congratulations to this amazing couple!

Nicole & Eric at Crescent Beach Club

Nicole & Eric      April 21, 2018

One night while waiting for their friends to arrive at a restaurant, Nicole and Eric struck up a conversation and just clicked.  The beginning of their relationship was not easy though since it started off as a long distance one.  For their first two years together Eric was primarily in the Middle East working as an engineer aboard navy ships. 

After dating for about three years, Eric planned on proposing at a New York Ranger’s hockey game.  Even though that was the plan, Eric’s nerves about bringing the ring there got the best of him. He decided it would be better to wait until after the game.  Eric made the moment even more special by first waking up Nicole’s two daughters and asking their permission to marry their mother.  When they both said yes, he then officially asked Nicole to be his wife. 

Nicole describes their wedding day as amazing and everything they had hoped for.  The best part for them is that they were able to fully enjoy themselves for the entirety of their wedding reception. 

“We had the best time and enjoyed being with each other and everyone who came and celebrated with us.” - Nicole

Congratulations to the happy couple!
