How They Met: It was a casual Wednesday night in Murray Hill, Manhattan when Bryan, who was with colleagues, and I, with my three friends from college, ran into each other at the infamous Nana sushi. We had known each other through my twin brother, but that night we exchanged numbers. I was super friendly and Bryan took advantage of having her number (to put it lightly). From then, we talked non-stop and I inevitably fell for him after our first date at the Hurricane Club. The rest is history!
Details of the Proposal: My husband turned a sad day into a day I will remember for the rest of my life. He proposed at the restaurant where we first met on my mother’s birthday who passed away in 2009. I thought I was going to Bryan’s previous co-workers holiday party and first meeting his boss at a bar, but, little did I know, I would walk in to a display of sushi saying “Will you marry me?”
Details of the Day: I have to say my vendors really made my day the one I always hoped it would be. The service and attention I received from them really created the immense energy we all had. My bridal party raved from the minute they arrived into the room we had reserved for hair and make up, until the end of the night which included sushi and drinks prepared at The Rockleigh before walking down the aisle and a band that kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. It was truly a day and a night to remember.
The Menu: We had a large variety of different stations at cocktail hour including raw bar, sushi bar, Idaho station (which was every sort of potato you can imagine in every which way) and an ice luge!
Favorite Moment: When my husband and I saw each other for the first time, it’s almost like you fall in love all over again. It was a breath of fresh air when the attention is not just on you anymore but both of you together.
Couldn’t Live Without: My vendors and their tremendous help making the day super seamless and keeping everyone upbeat and calm at the same time!
Favorite Detail: The chuppah, it was everything I was hoping and dreaming for an envisioned the day I got married. It felt like a fairy tale!
