Aryn and Jeremy’s wedding had it all from the romantic first look on York’s Wiggly Bridge then the dramatic wedding ceremony over looking the Maine coast. It was a gorgeous autumn evening and they planned the ceremony at the perfect time to hit sunset and then into the blue hour. The views were stunning from the cliff side lawns of the Stageneck Inn in York. From there Aryn and Jeremy settled into the ballroom for drinks, dancing and a party with all of their family and friends. Here is their wedding day from start to finish. Thank you for having me there Aryn and Jeremy! What a pleasure to be part of this!
How did you meet?
We first met on an online dating website and our first date was at a local restaurant. Typically, first dates last about 1-3 hours but ours went for 6+ hours. We talked the night away and we both knew then that there was something special.
Describe the proposal:
We went to Pittsburgh, PA to visit my parents for Christmas. On Christmas Eve we went to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens with my parents and walked around the indoor gardens which were decorated for the holiday. After walking around the complex, Jeremy asks me if I wanted to take a picture before we go, as I love taking photos. We walked to the center of the entrance way where there was a beautiful arrangement of flowers and a large Christmas tree. He hugged me, got on one knee, and asked me to marry him. Of course I said “YES”!
What makes you special as a couple?
What makes us work as a couple is that we support one another. He always wants me to be happy and reminds me to take self-care. As he says, I get him out of his comfort zone and brighten up his day.
What are some unique aspects to your wedding day?
For our wedding my sister sang while my brother played guitar. In addition, we had an outdoor sunset ceremony at the end of November, so it was cold, but we had a beautiful sunset.
Do you have honeymoon plans?
We are going to Reykjavik, Iceland; Paris, France; Venice, Italy; Rome, Italy; and ending at a friends wedding in Bulgaria.
