How did Mike propose? Mike proposed to me on August 19, 2012. It happened on the balcony of our apartment after an amazing dinner at Annisa in the West Village. I had been away with my family for two weeks and had not seen Mike during that time. It was the best surprise to come home to and it could not have been more perfect for us.
Standout Memory of the night: The most standout memory of our wedding night was the Rabbi reading the vows that both Mike and I wrote to each other and watching the emotions of all our friends and family.
Honeymoon Location: Mike and I went to South Africa on our honeymoon. Mike planned the whole trip and did an amazing job. The best part of the trip was seeing all of the wild animals up close and in their natural habitat. The food and wine were also incredible.
One piece of advice that you could give to other couples: A piece of advice I would give to other couples is to make sure there is always compromise!
Groom’s Tux: Vera Wang
Bridesmaids’ Gift and Groomsmen’ Gift: For my bridesmaid’s, I bought each a pair of Victoria’s Secret black and white polka dot pajamas which were monogrammed, which they wore to get ready in. I also bought each of them a hanger with their name and date of my wedding. Mike bought his groomsmen each personalized Louisville Slugger baseball bats.
Something Borrowed and Something Blue: My something blue was the Hanky Pankys I wore under my dress as well as I Do stickers that were on the bottom of each of my Valentino shoes. Both items were from my amazing bridesmaids. My something borrowed was a broach, which was fastened to my bouquet. It was my Grandmother’s. Unfortunately she was not able to attend but I know she was looking down on us.
Testimonial: Our experience with Fred Marcus Studio was amazing. Felix was our wedding photographer and he was so warm and friendly and did such a great job. I actually worked with him at my best friend’s wedding, so I knew I wanted to have him for our wedding. He captured all of the great moments at our wedding and We love looking at our pictures. He was even able to get my brother to smile which is pretty hard to do. The engagement session was also fantastic and there were so many great pictures to choose from. The quality of the pictures is just amazing. The colors are so vivid you feel like you are still in the moment. We could not be happier with our decision.
