Lauren and Matt's love tale began with a fateful swipe on a dating app. Fast forward six years, filled with love and laughter, and these two were destined for forever.
The proposal? “Matt proposed at the DeBruce in NY. It had just snowed, so we had a perfect backdrop. I was not expecting it,” recalls Lauren.
Lauren and Matt, a dynamic New York duo, tied the knot after a year of planning. Their wedding at Valley Rock Inn was attended by 200 friends and family, echoing their dream of a European-style outdoor celebration.
The wedding day kicked off with personalized invitations and carefully chosen wedding rings. The morning was abuzz with excitement, setting the stage for the day’s events with elegant stationery and special jewelry.
The bride's journey to find the perfect dress ended at Spina Bridal with a stunning creation by Lee Petra Grebenau. “I tried on probably over 50 dresses,” she chuckles. The Valley Rock Inn set the scene for her getting-ready moments, complete with her bridesmaids in Amsale dresses and a selection of carefully chosen accessories.
Meanwhile, Matt donned a sleek Giorgio Armani tuxedo. His getting-ready process was filled with camaraderie and anticipation, marking the start of his journey down the aisle.
The first look was a heartfelt moment at the Valley Rock Inn's rose garden. Their eyes met, and emotions soared, encapsulating the love and excitement of the day.
The Valley Rock Inn, chosen for its European charm, was adorned in neutral tones. “We wanted something outside that felt like Europe but without actually being in Europe. It was hard to find in the NY area, but we found the perfect place after looking at many venues,” shares the couple.
Every detail, from the colors to the personalized items, reflected Lauren and Matt's vision for their special day.
