We love it when we first meet couples at their engagement session and then we get to feature their Real Wedding.
We snagged their proposal story off of their wedding website.
They went to Hawaii for Stacy’s birthday and a vacation. After a beautiful sunny morning surprise breakfast facing the ocean, the two went to explore the rocks and coral near the beach. Stacy, only in flip-flops, cut her toe and bled the whole way to the sandy coast. The sky turned overcast as they laid out their towels on the beach. Before they knew it, heavy rain poured down. They gathered their things and went to wait out the storm at a nearby restaurant. Unfortunately, the weather never improved. Stacy didn’t think her birthday could get any worse and consoled herself over a cocktail.
Eventually the two went back to the hotel room. Brad urged her outside on the balcony, despite the darkening sky and menacing clouds. She saw a tray of champagne and strawberries arranged on the table.
What a lovely birthday surprise! she thought. When she turned around, Brad proposed.
The Modern Jewish Wedding Details
The couple who live in the bay area got married at The Madison in Morristown, New Jersey. After dating throughout college, upon Stacy’s graduation they drove across the country from Maine to Oakland, California.
They must love the sunshine on the West Coast, because the couple brought it to their wedding in the form of Yellow! They used yellow throughout the wedding. Creating a warm fuzzy feeling for everyone! Stacy & Brad have a special glow throughout the day.
We love Stacy’s use of the color of the sun in her flowers, table decor, wedding cake, her FAB-U-LOUS shoes and even in the papercut Ketubah.
The one place we don’t see yellow–the cupcake tower. That was Brad’s domain. As a “gamer” he chose chose Legend of Zelda for his topper.
