After walking the red carpet, guests entered the lobby of The Suffolk Theater for Melanie and Nick’s wedding. A festive mood filled the air (literally) – a floating canopy of balloons trimmed with florals and ribbon hung overhead. While the movie theme was apparent, the couple kept the rest of their wedding details under wraps. Melanie reveals, “One of the surprises was that we made our own escort cards to look like tickets. The theater has an original ticket booth from the 1930s. Nick’s friend, who is an actor, stood in the booth handing out tickets and ushering everyone into the theater.” Here, she talks about sharing the spotlight with Nick to say “I Do” in front of family and friends.

When your wedding theme is ‘1940s Oscars Party,’ only a red-carpet worthy dress will do for the occasion. Melanie could have easily been mistaken for a movie star as she made her way into The Suffolk Theater. Here she shares the details about her show-stopping Pronovias gown and bridal personals.

Part 2: Wedding Dress & Personals

It was evident from the beginning that as a couple, Melanie and Nick had a distinct style and their wedding was going to be one-of-a-kind. Perhaps it was this genuine, ‘go with your gut’ approach that made her search for the perfect dress so effortless. Melanie had scheduled two bridal appointments, one in the morning followed by a second in the afternoon. “After trying on and liking a few dresses at the first boutique, I headed to Pronovias in midtown. I knew which gown was going to be mine from the moment I put it on. The decision was so very ‘matter of fact’ that even my Mother-In-Law, who is a very emotional woman, didn’t shed a tear… until the fitting anyway.” She continues, “My mother wasn’t there, so we made a second visit together. My mind was already made up by then and thankfully, she felt the same way.”

Melanie and Nick met like many couples do these days – online. After a few email exchanges, they made plans to meet at a chic downtown NYC bar only to find out there was a two hour wait to get in. The dive bar just around the corner seemed like a better option. Melanie recalls, “We spent hours talking and playing pool against a Michael Clark Duncan’s look-alike. In the cab ride home, I realized Nick forgot to close out our one-drink tab. That’s how lost in the moment we were.” She continues, “When we said our goodbyes, we both knew that we had just been on our ‘last’ first date.”
