Our Love Story

Once upon a mid-summer night, Rachel & John stumbled across one another at an oceanfront Point Pleasant Beach bar. A few minutes after arriving, John couldn’t resist approaching Rachel, who sadly couldn’t stay. John charmingly persuaded Rachel to reunite soon. Soon, indeed! Little did they both know, at the time, of the adventurous journey that awaited them together as a future couple! Fast forward a few days later, they went on their first date at Felina's in Ridgewood, NJ. Followed by over two years of love, memories, and several travel adventures — with their most recent trip to Italy…where they got ENGAGED!

The Proposal

In college, these two each studied abroad in Florence, Italy. When they met years later, their mutual history in Florence instantly connected them. As they began to make plans for the future, Rachel & John decided they would revisit Florence together one day. Keeping his word to return to this beautiful and special Italian city, John secretly planned and executed the most romantic, ethereal proposal in Florence. On a private rooftop terrace, serenaded by a violinist, and overlooking the storybook city that brought their shared interests together from inception, John got down on one knee. You’re probably catching on to the conclusion... Unequivocally, Rachel said, “YES!” Now, that's amore! As they embark on this continuing adventure together, they are so excited to have you celebrate with them as a special part of their Happily Ever After!
