How did David propose? David proposed on the beach in Amagansett, New York where David’s family has a summer house. It was July 4th weekend and the beach was incredibly crowded, but David suggested we go for a walk down to where the beach was empty. We found a driftwood log and we were sitting and talking how happy we were and then Dave got on one knee in the sand and I (who was completely surprised) said yes! It was a really special private moment. When we got back to the house, both David and I’s parents were waiting – they had come in to surprise us and we spent the weekend celebrating with family and friends.
Standout Memory of the night: Our standout memory of our wedding was the first dance. We were so happy and excited to be married – all that was left to do was party!
Honeymoon Location: For our honeymoon we spent 3 weeks in Italy. The highlight of the trip was 10 days we spent on the Amalfi coast where we enjoyed the beautiful beaches and ate gelato every day.
One piece of advice that you could give to other couples: The wedding flies by. Take a moment to take a step back and enjoy.
Wedding Dress: Pronovias
Groom’s Tux: Paul Stuart
Bridesmaids’ Gift and Groomsmen’ Gift: Personalized suspenders and monogrammed pocket squares for the groomsmen. Monogrammed bathrobes and travel cases for the bridesmaids (that is what we used when getting ready).
Something borrowed and something blue: My something old was an antique beaded handbag that was my grandmothers. My something new was the beautiful earrings that David gave me as a wedding gift. My something borrowed was the pearl bracelet that my mom loaned me for the wedding. And my something blue was a pair of cute “I DO!” underwear that came from my bridesmaids.
