We met… At the University of Vermont while we were both in graduate school; me getting my Doctorate of Physical Therapy and Scott getting his Masters of Engineering. We both went there for undergrad as well. Scott’s friend, Mike, was in my DPT class and introduced us! We couldn’t believe we lived so close—only 5 minutes away from each other in MA—and had never met before moving to Vermont for college.
The proposal… Scott always likes to be creative…He had wanted me to get my scuba diving certification for almost two years. I was pretty hesitant, but he finally made me get it before a family trip to St. Maarten. Scott ended up proposing to me 50 feet below.
The wedding venue… We were married on July 19, 2014. We had a Catholic ceremony at St. Mary of the Sacred Heart Church in Hanover, MA, and then a Jewish ceremony at Bumpus Park in Duxbury, MA; as I am Catholic and Scott is Jewish. We held the reception at Jones River Trading Company in Kingston, MA, where the entire party danced the night away!
We incorporated VV into our special day… With the great patchwork and pink whale coozies, which is what I gave to all my bridesmaids when asking them if they would be a part of our special day. We dressed the groom, his groomsmen and the ring bearer in the rhubarb Club Pants, as well as ties. Scott’s base color of the VV tie was green, the groomsmen were blue, and both of our fathers wore pink, all in the same print. Our ring bearer also wore a similar tie in a kid’s size. The bridesmaids all wore a navy blue and white cocktail dress from VV. They all loved it! It fit everyone well, and I have actually seen a few of them wear it again!!
