How did you meet?
Nick and I met at a town scavenger hunt put together by mutual friends when we were 16! I was on the green team and Nick was on the black team. We were introduced quickly during it and didn’t talk for the rest of the night. We both told the same friend that we were interested in each other and began talking from Nick’s “truth is” status on Facebook. The rest is history!
Nick proposed to me on a private boat excursion while we were in Bermuda! I am actually the hardest person to surprise, but someone he got me. Nick told me the day before the excursion that he randomly booked it for us last minute. We were on a cruise with my family to Bermuda and were supposed to arrive that next day so I was super worried my family was going to think we ditched them our first day there. We were in the cab heading to the dock the next day and Nick wound up giving the cab driver the wrong address. He was acting really weird and while I was commenting on the beautiful Bermuda scenery, Nick was silent which was totally unlike him. I told him to let me check the email to see if I can help and he refused. Then, I look over and see Nick legitimately reading a novel. I asked “What are you reading?!” and he quickly closed the page and said “Nothing.” Super strange. Once we made our way to the dock and got on the boat, he asked me if I wanted to give my phone to one of the employees to take casual pictures for us throughout the day and I told him no because I thought that would be rude. Little did I know he was planning on proposing! He proposed at the front of the boat and we spent the rest of our trip celebrating with our family!
Why did you pick your venue?
Once we saw Bear Brook, we pretty much fell in love. It was the perfect mix of modern farmhouse and elegance and a lot different than the typical wedding venue. We loved how organized everything was and how pretty the grounds were. We just knew it was the right choice!
Tell us about all the details of the wedding!
I cannot believe how many details go into planning a wedding! We got married on June 26, 2021. Our primary color scheme was dusty rose, blush, sage and cream. Our bridesmaids wore dusty rose colored dressed and our groomsmen and Nick wore navy suits with dusty rose ties. Nick wore a bow-tie! We had flowers placed all along the pergola on Bear Brook’s property and had floral table runners as our centerpieces on the beautiful flowers at Bear Brook. We had most of our signs made by our florist and I made the others for our memory table and guest book. Our seating chart and favors were the most adorable little succulents. The entire day was so amazing!
