From The Bride:

We both moved to New York City after graduating from College and ended up living in the same apartment building. After a few flirtacious elevator run-ins, Michael became known as ‘Elevator Boy’ and I was known as “7th Floor Girl.’

A couple of months into living in the city, a mutual (best) friend of ours had a birthday party and we hit it off from there.

Our first date was an Islanders vs. Rangers game. I opened the my door to leave for our date and Michael was standing there with an Islanders t-shirt that he had bought and steamed for me. He was a keeper.

Michael proposed to me at our usual restaurant, Little Prince, aka LP the night before Valentine’s Day. The manager at the restaurant has done magic tricks for us before and is a magician on the side. When we got to the restaurant, he came over and said that his friend was filming a series and may come over to our table to perform a few tricks.

The magician came over to our table and did two tricks, the second one being the proposal. He asked me to wish for anything in the world and said that the card in Michael’s hand would have my wish on it once he flipped it over. Michael flipped over the card and it said ‘Will You Marry Me?’ I wasn’t sure if it was part of the trick or an actual proposal until Michael came around the table and got on one knee.

After the proposal, we met our closest friends out to celebrate and had a big brunch with a larger group of friends the following morning that Michael had organized.

We had close to a year and a half engagement so had plenty of time to plan. We did the big stuff first: venue, band, photographer and then took our time with the rest. When it came time for the wedding, we were so relaxed and it couldn’t have been more rewarding to see everything come together.

It was a magical night, and one we’ll remember forever.
