October 2020 – Andrea and Stephen Wedding Rental Winners
Each month, one of our couples wins $500 off their wedding rentals. Say hello to our lucky October winners, Andrea and Stephen! We can’t wait to share their love story with you! Read on for our chat with the bride and groom to be, Andrea and Stephen:
Where did you meet your fiancée?
We met on Tinder! #Iswipedright
How did you know he was the one for you?
There are so many characteristics about Stephen that helped me realize he was the one – he is the funniest, most caring person I know! But, I think the biggest factor is that I can be 100% unapologetically myself with him. I am as comfortable with him as I am by myself. He has seen the best of me and the worst of me – and he loves it all. That is the greatest gift anyone has given me.
What are the things you have in common?
We both love to travel and we’re huge foodies! And we have a shared love for two of our favorite things – Bacon Bits and Butters (the names of our two dogs).
How did he propose?
We were strolling through one of the many sights in New York City when we finally picked a spot to do something that was, like I emphasized to Stephen previously, very important to me – to have my first slice of genuine New York Pizza. We got our slices and strolled to find a place to eat it. We settled on a bench in what looked like a beautiful peaceful park, but definitely ended up actually being a cemetery. As I took my first bite and Stephen was taking a picture (yes, we are those people), Stephen unbeknownst to me slid the camera to video and recorded as he got down on one knee and proposed. And to answer what you’re probably wondering – Yes, the pizza was delicious 🙂
What part of the wedding day are you looking forward to most?
We are most excited to celebrate with all our loved ones at the reception!
What inspired your wedding colors?
Purple was the favorite color of Stephen’s Grandmother, known to Stephen and his family as “Lil Nanz,” and so using purple throughout was an ode to her (as well as Stephen’s favorite color). The greenery and white come from our love for what is simple but still so beautiful, and we found it to be a really elegant mix as we made our planning choices.
Thanks, Andrea and Stephen! It was great to chat with you.
