Mindy and Michael were married on a beautiful September day at the Brooklyn Winery. The day began at the St. Regis hotel and with photos in Central Park.
Mindy met Michael at the southeast corner of Central Park for their first look.
Mindy and Michael began working together at SafeRent in 2010 and really got to know each other in 2015 through work. Mindy shares, “I was so impressed with his charm, chivalry and of course, his professionalism. I knew at once that Michael was a wonderful person and was so glad he was in my life”
Michael asked Mindy to marry him in Central Park on April 21 of this year.
Mindy had a special surprise for Michael. She shares, “He was certain I got him a watch as a wedding gift. Instead I bought him a necklace he had admired in Peru (the week before the wedding) but didn’t buy and put it in an empty watch box. It was great to see his surprise (and confusion) when he opened the gift. We chose the cufflinks he wore for the wedding together in Peru as well.”
Mindy shares, “The wedding was better than I ever imagined it would be. My fascination with Indian culture and weddings inspired the decor and color scheme for our wedding. Kehrin made this vision come to life with a hint of Indian tradition paired with a color palette that was bright and vibrant with beautiful traditional floral garlands. The winery’s warmth from the reclaimed wood succulent wall, paired with the modern concrete floor and light filled atrium made for a perfect venue for what turned out to be a dream wedding for me. Seeing the room set for dinner prior to the guests entering brought tears to my eyes. It was magical and everything I imagined.
I loved everything about the day, from the luxurious room at the St Regis to getting ready with my darling nieces to seeing Michael for the first time in Central Park to walking down the aisle and seeing everyone I love in one place to pronouncing our love in front of them all to the delectable black and white cake from Amy’s Bread. It was all just perfect.
Michael forgetting his vows at home, his button popping off of his tuxedo when he was getting ready and my veil catching fire during my procession all just added to the special memories from the day. I was so honored to have my mother walk me down the aisle and give me away, my best friend standing beside me and my brother reading in the ceremony and sharing his lovely daughters as flower girls. My heart is so full. Our first dance was punctuated by Dorothy, my oldest niece, twirling around Michael and I. I wouldn’t have had it any other way.”
Congratulations Mindy and Michael!
