When this Long Island couple studied abroad, they had no idea what the future was to hold!
We adore "love stories" and especially ones that are designed by fate when two people cross paths at just the right time...and Deanna and Nicks love story brings us just that! While most would think that they would have fallen in love while they were studying abroad in Florence, Italy (known as one of the most romantic destination in the world) that is not exactly when it happened for this couple! And wait until you read on to see who made Deanna's wedding ring!
Deanna And Nicks Love Story: Told by Deanna
Nick and I met in 2011 while studying abroad in Florence, Italy. Although, it wasn’t until we came back to Marist College our sophomore year that our love story really began. After five years of dating, Nick proposed to me under the wonderfully lit tree at Marist. We planned every aspect of our wedding for almost two years, and while things didn’t exactly go as planned, I don’t think we ever expected a day so perfect.
Our wedding day felt like a dream. We decided to postpone our reception to 2021, although, we were able to get married with our immediate family on October 3, 2020. The day was so intimate, we truly felt like we had an opportunity to savor each and every moment. Seeing our families come together as one was more beautiful than we could’ve ever imagined. We feel so lucky that we were able to get married this year and celebrate the love we share with the people that are most precious in our lives. It truly felt as if our families came together as one. It was such a beautiful day with so much love and happiness.
"THE MOST PRECIOUS PIECE OF JEWELRY..."
My grandfather was a jeweler in NYC for most of his life and although he has been retired now for some time, Nick made sure that he was involved in process of getting my ring. As if an engagement ring isn’t special enough, both Nick and my grandfather chose the stone together and then my grandfather set the stone. It will forever be the most precious piece of jewelry I own!
DEANNA, NICK, AND THEIR DREAM TEAM OF LONG ISLAND WEDDING VENDORS WILL MEET AGAIN IN 2021 All of our vendors were truly incredible. We can’t thank them enough for helping to make this the most memorable day of our lives. We are so looking forward to doing this all over again with them next year.
