How did Craig propose? Craig proposed on the rooftop of my building, surrounded by roses and candles, with a dramatic view of the Manhattan skyline in the background. He blindfolded me and took me upstairs where he got down on one knee and handed me a small book entitled “50 Reasons Why I love You.” The book was filled with jokes and love notes and on the last page of the book, he wrote “Will You Marry Me?” It was perfect.
Standout Memory of the night: Right before I walked down the aisle, I was overcome with emotion as I watched the procession enter the chuppah room and heard the meaningful music selections being played/sang. It was very moving to see my parents standing there about to walk me down.
Honeymoon Location: We went to the Maldives and stayed in an over-the-water hut. It’s the most incredible place on earth!
One piece of advice that you could give to other couples: Enjoy every second, it goes by way too fast! Also, hire vendors and planners you feel extremely comfortable with and whose work you have seen because you wont have to worry about anything.
Wedding Dress: Vera Wang. Flagship store on Madison Avenue. Custom detail.
Bridesmaids’ Gift and Groomsmen’ Gift: Both bridesmaids and groomsmen received monogrammed toiletry/dopp bags.
Something Blue and Something Borrowed: One of my oldest and best friends lent me a gold evil eye pin she used on her three children’s baby blankets when bringing each of them home from the hospital. She pinned it into my dress; it was very sentimental. For the something blue, I had a hand stitched white/blue label with the date of my wedding and my initials sewed into my dress. My barrette was from the 1920’s to go with the vintage aloncon lace my dress was made out of.
TESTIMONIAL: I wanted to tell you how amazing Felix and Juan were at our wedding. I know you already know how talented they are, but on top of that, I still wanted to let you know how professional, considerate, prompt and nice they were. We only received a few pictures so far, but we were blown away. They are unbelievable and captured the emotion and beauty of the day better than anything else. The people who saw the pictures were also blown away. I received messages from close friends to random people telling me that they are the nicest and best wedding photos they have EVER seen. I am so happy that we chose Fred Marcus. It was the right choice and the best choice.
