As part of our blog, we interview the bride and groom about their wedding experience. This is what they said:
Tell us about the Bride Where you grew up, went to school, where you work.
I grew up in New City, NY, went to the University at Albany, and worked at Atlantic Health System in Morristown, NJ.
I grew up in Upper Saddle River, NJ, went to Quinnipiac University, and now work for Ernst and Young.
Tell us how you first met? Who what when where why? Please give us the dirty details.
At a bar, it was a little awkward. We both found out after a couple of months of dating, and we thought the other wasn’t into each other.
Early on. Our relationship always flowed really smoothly, and we just knew we were meant to be with one another.
Tell us about the proposal. (Did you see it coming? How long was it in the planning? How did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?)
It was a HUGE SURPRISE. I am usually very good at finding things out and not being surprised by this was the one time somebody planned something without me knowing. I love Halloween and fall things about the Fall, so Ethan figured out the perfect way to incorporate that into the proposal. We went to the Jack O Lantern Blaze in Croton on Hudson, my family was there, and Ethan had them carve a pumpkin into a HUGE wedding cake, saying, “Sammi, Will You Marry Me?” Saying I freaked out is an understatement. It is definitely a night we will never forget.
Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.
Well, I guess we are meant to get married since we both came up with the same response to this question. We both find one another funny and like how we can make each other laugh.
Having all of our friends and family in one room and the food for sure. The Brownstone’s food is pretty delicious.
What inspired your decor or theme?
How much really goes into planning a wedding. You think you have an idea, but there is way more that goes into it once you start.
