Cancun, Mexico. Spring Break, 2008.  It was Alyson’s senior year of college, and this was her last hurrah before graduation.  One night, she and her girlfriends were out at the hotel bar when Gary and his friends approached and asked if they could sit together. Alyson offered to share her seat with Gary, who was celebrating being in preseason for Major League Soccer with the rest of the team.  The gang shared in a wild night of partying, and Alyson and Gary said goodbye assuming they’d never see each other again.

So many details go into picking the right dress for your style, body, season and theme, to find the one that  will bring your whole wedding day look together.

Ryan + Darren: Rustic Elegance at Crabtree’s Kittle House

On the East bank of the Hudson River, thirty miles north of New York City, lies the beautiful historic settlement of Chappaqua. Founded by the Quakers in the 1780s, Chappaqua is home to a multitude of stunning historical buildings, including the timelessly elegant Crabtree’s Kittle House, where Ryan and Darren Mooney were married in impeccable style this past November.

Ryan and Darren reside in Boston, where they met during their second year of law school.  “We were both at a mutual friend’s birthday party where I learned Darren was moving not far from where I lived,” recalls Ryan, “I must have had liquid courage because I jumped at the opportunity to show him the neighborhood.  It was very awkward, to say the least…we went to the gym and then Trader Joe’s! It stuck though, and we’ve been together ever since!”
