COUPLE’S WEDDING STORY:
My husband, Matt, and I have been close friends since the 8th grade, but didn’t start dating until we were in college. We were together for 8 years when he asked me to marry him, and it was the most wonderful day of surprises and celebrating. It was a cold, cloudy Labor Day weekend on Long Island, but that didn’t stop Matt from pulling off the most amazing surprise. He took me on a decoy trip to go clamming in the bay, while friends and family were setting up an epic proposal party at our beach house. After clamming, he pretended to take me back home but instead drove the boat to our favorite swimming spot in the marshes of the Great South Bay. He got down on one knee off the side of the boat and I, of course, said “Yes!” He even had a friend hiding in the marshland taking photos to capture the moment. We headed back home and I was so excited to call my friends and family to tell them the good news, but to my surprise everyone was already at my house celebrating! We danced and drank champagne all night despite the pouring rain and even continued the partying on to our favorite spot, the Kismet Inn, on Fire Island.
