We met Trina and Scott last year right when they became newly engaged. Their planning started right away and we are thrilled to be a part of that process. The couple will wed next week on Saturday May28th, ceremony will take place at The Tenth on Delancy and the Reception at the Crystal Tea Room in the Wanamaker Building. I always ask my clients, “So, how did you guys meet”? I have heard it all kinds of stories, funny, happy, and emotional. I usually write a little bio on each couple, but this time, I left it to them. Enjoy their wonderful story and how they came to be.
The first time we met was at the rehearsal for the wedding of my college friend and her college roommate in July 2006. We were both in the wedding party, and we were paired to walk together. Despite the fact that we each knew the bride and groom very well, we had never been introduced. We casually flirted a bit that night, and then continued our flirtation the following night at the wedding (where Trina engineered the order of the wedding party so that she and I would be ensured of walking together). After all, I escorted the lady down the aisle — I could at least be a gentleman and show her a good time. From that point on, we were virtually inseparable.
After almost 4 years together in June of last year, I came home early one day, prepared our favorite meal, turned down the lights, lit candles, and waited. When Trina came home, I got down on one knee, read her a poem I’d written, presented her with the ring and asked her to marry me. She said yes, and now we’re looking forward to a long, happy and blessed life together!
