Stephen and I met through a mutual friend during the summer of 2015 and hit it off immediately.
After 3 years of dating we decided to build our first home together with our two kitties, Ravioli & Cannoli. On our 5th Anniversary (10/12/19) Stephen decided to pop the question in our home - that we built together! It was a very intimate and special moment that I wouldn’t change because of how much it meant to the two of us.
We were so excited to start planning that we immediately attended a wedding expo and fell in love with 60 State. We visited the venue and knew it was the perfect place. The marble walls, grandiose nature of the venue and Great Gatsby feel provided the most perfect venue for our dream wedding.
Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! From the moment we arrived to get ready in the bridal suite to the moment we left as husband and wife, it couldn’t have been more perfect. A special thank you to all of our amazing vendors, for making it the most picture perfect day! I want to just relive it over and over again!
