Our French Elopement, Part Two

After our ceremony in Chateauneuf-Villevieille we headed down the mountain to Villefranche-sur-Mer. This was one of the two alone times Jeremy and I had throughout the day, and all I can remember is that I wanted to lay my head back or on his shoulder, but couldn't do either because of my hair and the [...]

Our French Elopement, Part One

On Monday September 10th, 2018 I awoke very early in the morning in Nice, France, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea to marry my handsome Jeremy. Just four days after we surprised six friends with where in the world we're flying to, and that it wasn't for a bachelor trip but an elopement. Followed by a delightful [...]

After revealing to our friends that we were headed to the South of France, surprising them that we are eloping and picking up the bridesmaids dresses, we were headed for JFK! I was a little concerned about getting my quite large Kleinfeld’s dress bag onto the plane in the garment closet vs the overhead bin, so [...]

How We Pulled Off A Surprise Wedding

We FaceTimed six friends and told them, “We have this crazy too-good-to-be-true thing. A brand reached out to partner together, and what we came up with is we each get to bring three friends on an all expenses paid Bachelor/Bachelorette trip. The hook I pitched them is that you guys don’t know where we’re going. So [...]

The Courthouse Bride Wore Chanel

The first step in eloping overseas, was to get legally married. It's possible abroad, but not worth the hassle. We thought we would feel married after our personal vows; that the courthouse ceremony would just feel like another step in getting our marriage license, which it did. Of course I get emotional at everything, so [...]

Why We Eloped

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a dream I never told anyone about. I have no idea where it came from, but somewhere along the way I created the daydream that before our big family wedding, my husband-to-be and I would elope to England. I’ve always known I would want the traditional [...]

Our Proposal Story

He proposed in the rain on a Sunday. Chivalrous, he thought, down on one knee in the damp, and shrewd as it’s one of the rare times you can find our bustling home sweet New York City empty and private. We had secretly gotten, well, pre-engaged a few months earlier. On another Sunday one conversation [...]

LOCATION: BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
DEAR DEAN ST, MEET BEAU

I’ve always been a private person. Around 8-years-old I recall being horrified hearing my sister tell my mom who she had a crush on. In my last career of musical theatre I was on stage, under the spotlight. Yet in character, performing, not sharing my personal life. Seven years ago when I started a side [...]
