For the few who may not know, Michael and I go back.. WAY back. Sometimes life has a funny way of setting a plan for you, that you are not even remotely aware of until it actually happens. For this story, it was a great plan that goes as far back as our Grandmothers knowing each other while growing up on Mulberry Street in New York City, and both eventually moving out to the "country" (Kings Park, Long Island) to raise their families. As the story goes, their children became friends, and their children's children became friends (it is Kings Park, Long island after all).
Which brings us to the bride and groom to be... I now believe how love can hit you out of nowhere when you least expect it. Sure, growing up we would see each other here & there for holidays, backyard bbq's - heck, I think there was even some vacations thrown into the mix.. but I don't think anyone would have ever dreamed that a wedding & a quick trip to St.Thomas (shout out to Jack and Nicole!) would have been exactly what we needed to fall head over heels. I remember it perfectly - seeing him at the airport, spending an entire day together, and then another, and the next 2 after that. This was no ordinary Summer love, this was it. I found my best friend, and the person I never wanted to be apart from. A few trips to Hoboken, a few trips from him out to Long Island and we were both sold. Fast forward 1 year, and he is down on his knee in front of the New York City skyline at sunrise - I know, he is the cutest. All of that leads us here, with our wedding around the corner, and the rest of our lives to look forward to.
We can't wait to celebrate with you all!
Red Maple Vineyard is a fully functioning farm & vineyard with amazing grounds. The ceremony, cocktail hour & reception will all take place here, so there will be plenty of time to roam the property.
