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!

Rachel shares, “One of my favorite moments of the day was the first look. It was so exciting and emotional to see Michael for the first time that day, and when I went to tap him on the shoulder I could feel the tears coming! For me, that was really the moment that kicked off the day and made everything feel so real.”

The ceremony was held outdoors under the beautiful summer sky.

Michael shares, “My favorite moment of the day was breaking the glass at the end of the ceremony. Not gonna lie, I was a bit nervous that the glass wouldn’t break, but then I heard the crack and the resounding mazel tov! I was so excited and happy to finally be married to Rachel.”

Rachel shares, “I would say our wedding style was classic and elegant. We fell in love with Brooklake Country Club as soon as we went to see the venue. The golf course setting was perfect and so picturesque for an outdoor ceremony followed by the reception in the beautiful ballroom. We chose primarily neutral colored florals in ivory and blush with pops of pink and greenery, which stood out nicely against the bridesmaids’ black dresses.”

Congratulations Rachel and Michael!

Megan and Jeremy just moved into a beautiful house near Barr Lake State Park. A trail circles the lake and includes scenic views of the mountains, wildlife, a small beach, and bridges, which have special meaning to Megan, because she is from Pittsburgh, a town full of beautiful bridges.

Megan shares, “Jeremy and I met in early 2015. He was new to Colorado and had just started dating an upstairs neighbor in my apartment complex. I stole him away almost immediately, and we were inseparable as of late April. We went on our first adventure together Memorial Day weekend – camping at Colorado National Monument on the west side of the state near Grand Junction. The weather was beautiful when we left, but then it rained… and hailed, and rained some more, but we didn’t let that dampen our fun. When we were driving back to Denver at the end of the weekend, Jeremy beat me to it and said, “I love you” first. We drove through some snow flurries near Georgetown, and then proceeded to see three rainbows before getting back home. One of the best weekends ever!

Since then Jeremy and I have continued to grow both individually and as a couple, loving and supporting each other through the good and the bad, every step of the way. Never have I been more in tune with another human being in my life, let alone one that I love so deeply and unconditionally. I absolutely cannot wait for our special day – we are finally going to tie the knot at Chief Hosa Lodge in Golden, CO on September 14!”

Megan and Brad love Colorado and the incredible landscape. We went to Red Rocks for views of the mountains, amazing rock formations and wild terrain. She shares, “I love Colorado because it has everything you would ever want! Four seasons, mountains, exciting night life, booming economy, and all the outdoor adventures your heart could want! Brad moved here from Iowa 12 years ago and I’m a 6 generation Colorado Native.”

Katie and Michael were married on a beautiful September day in New York City.

Katie got ready for the day in her childhood home in Long Island.

Such a sweet moment between Katie and her dad.

Meanwhile, at a hotel in Manhattan Michael got ready for the day with his family and friends.

Katie arrived at the church in a checkered cab with her dad.

Katie shares, “Our wedding celebration took place at St. Anthony’s of Padua Church on Sullivan Street, which holds a special place in our hearts. St. Anthony’s is the first house of worship constructed by Italians in the United States, which resonates greatly with both of our families. My grandmother, Catherine Timpone (Grandma Kay), and her six siblings grew up on Sullivan Street and attended the St. Anthony’s grammar school. My great great grandmother, Christina Timpone, was an active member of St. Anthony’s and donated the small marble top table that stands on the altar to this day! My mom often visits St. Anthony’s and believes she feels the presence of her family all around her.”

Mike had a hard time choosing a favorite moment from the day. He shares, “This is tough! There were so many wonderful moments throughout the morning, afternoon and evening. Sharing our wedding with all of our family and friends in a city that means the world to us was so special. If choosing one, watching Katie enter the church and walk down the aisle with her dad, Tom, was my favorite moment. It felt like an “out-of-body” experience and brought so much joy and excitement to my heart. I’ll remember that for the rest of my life.”

After the ceremony, we headed to Central Park for photos around Bethesda Terrace, and for a quick NYC bite!

What an amazing way to enter a cocktail hour!

Katie shares, “It’s difficult to pick my favorite moment because the whole day was magical. It still feels like a hazy dream I had. If I had to choose it’s probably when we were about to enter our reception at the Boathouse. Throughout the day my sister, Kerry, kept reminding us to stop and be grateful since the day would inevitably go by so fast. The DJ had finished calling each member of our bridal party, leaving Mike and me alone outside the glass doors waiting for our turn. We could see the lights and hear the cheers from all of family and friends inside. We locked hands and we knew that this was it. This was one of those “grateful moments.” This was the moment when we were about to begin not only one of the best nights of our lives, but also the beginning of our journey as a couple forever. The cheers and applause from our loved ones as we entered as Mr. and Mrs. D’Ambrosio may have been the best way to start.”
