How did Nick propose? I waited till Mara least expected it and caught her by surprise. She had no idea that a proposal was coming, and her reaction was amazing!
Standout Memory of the night: This is tough, as there were so many great moments. For me, it would be seeing Mara in her dress for the first time. She looked fantastic. For Mara, it was being alone for a few minutes right after the ceremony with Nick. We had a moment to let the fact that we were married sink in.
Honeymoon Location: We are planning to take an extended trip to New Zealand and Australia. We’ve waited to go so we can maximize our time there.
One piece of advice that you could give to other couples: It sounds cliche, but step back, take a breath, and give yourself a minute to really enjoy your wedding. It goes by so quickly that before you know it, it’s over.
Wedding Dress: Vera Wang from Vera Wang Bride in NYC.
Groom’s Tux: J Crew from the Ludlow Shop in Tribeca.
Bridesmaids’ Gift and Groomsmen’ Gift: Groom’s Gift: A bottle of Hibiki blended whiskey and a set of Ox Horn whiskey glasses. Bridesmaids’ Gift: A different piece of jewelry for each bridesmaid.
Something borrowed and something blue: A Blue ribbon Mara’s mother had from her bridal shower that all the women in her family signed.
