2013 Bride of the Year!

Congratulations to Britt as our 2013 Bride of the Year!

What a magnificent wedding – Britt and her handsome groom Kyle were married at the prestigious Keswick Hall at Monticello Virginia. Keswick Hall’s timeless surroundings nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains make for the most spectacular of views. From the diamond beading on Britt’s wedding gown to the firework display at the end of the evening, every detail dripped with elegance. It is no doubt Britt’s wedding was THE wedding of the year!

 How they met… 

Through a combination of MIT and similar career interests and connections, two roads converged at a Starbucks just north of Grand Central Station.  Britt and Kyle found themselves meeting each other for coffee expecting nothing and finding everything.  They got absolutely lost in conversation across a wide-range of topics and were there at Starbucks for way longer than they expected.

After that first meeting, neither could have expected what was to come, but they both knew how much they enjoyed the conversation and pledged to grab coffee again next time Britt was in the city.  With the second time meeting at the same Park Avenue Starbucks to get coffee with a very similar outcome, getting completely wrapped up in their conversation way longer than they planned, both knew they were interested in the other, but not quite sure how to proceed.

Thankfully, they found that opportunity to grab drinks.  Before they knew it, they were spending New Years together, lots of car and train travel between New York and Boston, vacation in Puerto Rico, and most recently a fantastic summer in New York where they got engaged.
