How did Scott propose? Scott proposed before dinner for our 3 year anniversary. He told me he had a small gift and handed me a box filled with rose petals and a photo book (I love pictures!). Though I had a feeling I knew where the roses were heading, I tried to stay calm… The photobook was filled with memories of things we have done together. Each page began with “remember when” until the last page read… “remember when we got engaged”? Scott then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. By the time I calmed down from shock and excitement and said I have to call my parents, they were at the door! After realizing what just happened, calling just about everyone we know, and of course toasting with a little champagne, w e all then went to a very special dinner to let the celebrations continue .
Standout memory of the night: My standout memory of the wedding day was our “first look”. I was so nervous until Scott finally saw me in my dress! Pictures that captured our first look moment will always be my favorite!
Honeymoon: We went to Moorea then Bora Bora and stopped in LA on our way home. Bora Bora was definitely our favorite!
Piece of Advice: Enjoy each and every minute of your wedding day. All the planning, worries, excitement and details fly by. Take a step back and be thankful for everything you both have and enjoy the moment!
Wedding Dress: Vera Wang, purchased at Vera Wang on Madison Avenue.
Bridesmaids’ Gift & Groomsmen Gift: Bridesmaids gifts were Coach leather bracelets and “Sam’s Team” t-shirts to wear on the day of getting ready. Groomsmen gifts were their favorite sports team cufflinks and silver bow tie to wear on the wedding day.
Something Blue and Something Borrowed: My something blue was a piece of ivory ribbon with my new monogram, SJL and our wedding date, 9.1.2012 sewn into my dress in blue thread. My something borrowed was my Grammy’s wedding band which I was married in. My second something borrowed a diamond bracelet from my mother-in-law which was given to her by Scott’s grandpa.
