THE LOVE STORY
WEDDING DATE: September 22, 2018
HOW THEY MET: Daniel and I met at a bar. It was hardly romantic, but it was pretty wild that we were both there at that exact same time. We both have weird work schedules, so the fact that we were both out on a random Thursday night, at the exact same location, was pretty crazy.
SMOOTH MOVE: My friend and I wanted to step outside for a moment, so we asked Daniel’s friend, Brett, to save our seats for us. We came back in to find out, in fact, that he had not saved our seats at all. Daniel immediately swooped in with a smooth move and said that he had saved a table for us instead and gestured to an open table in the corner of the bar. I didn’t fall for it, but thankfully my drunk friend and amazing wing-woman, Marge, made an immediate move to the table and we all sat down together. I told Daniel he looked like Ben Wyatt from Parks and Rec and the rest is history.
THE PROPOSAL: I hate large crowds and public displays of affection, so Daniel really hit the mark with the proposal at home. It was 10pm on a Wednesday, and we had just gotten back from a nice dinner and were drinking wine and listening to music in our living room. He pretended to go to the bathroom (even fake flushed the toilet) and came back to “make a toast” and ended up proposing. It was incredibly sweet and perfect. Almost everyone we knew was already asleep, so we ended up telling the majority of people the next day.
PLANNING: I’m a film producer professionally, so the idea of planning my own wedding seemed like a no brainer. I plan massive film shoots every day for a living. It was actually pretty nice only having to deal with myself. I, of course, had tons of help from family and friends throughout the process, but I really didn’t mind taking on the majority of the work. On the day of, I had my childhood friend and amazing wedding coordinator, Abby Church (A Wedding Come True) to make sure that everything ran smoothly. I couldn’t have survived the day without her. I had always planned on having a day-of coordinator and Abby was the best of the best.
PERSONAL PIECES: We were excited that we were able to include our sweet dog, Henry in the wedding. We honored him as one of the groomsmen.
GROOM’S FAVORITE WEDDING DAY MEMORY: I don’t have a single moment to say was my favorite, it was more of the day as a whole. After planning the wedding for months, it was fun to see it all come together and to life in front of all of our family and friends.
BRIDE’S FAVORITE WEDDING DAY MEMORY: One of my favorite moments from the wedding day was getting ready will all of my girlfriends in the morning. While the day was about Daniel and I, the morning stood out as a celebration of friendship.
