     Congratulations to the newlyweds Matt and Katie!

    My wife and I had the pleasure of sharing this beautiful summer’s day with them this weekend at the Restivo Farm in Irving, NY.  With the sun shining, and wind blowing, the guys (all engineers) constructed a Birch Tree Arch for the ceremony while the girls got ready.  Katie had requested this special little touch because of her love of trees and the end result was beautiful!  Many of the other little touches were the result of Katie’s DIY creativity and ingenuity, from the centerpieces, the welcome table, and even a CANDY BAR (Yummmmm)!  The guys were dashing in their brown vests, while the girls wore flowing pastel green.

    Katie and Matt met 11 years ago while attending college.  After 8 years as friends, Katie finally asked Matt out on a date, and they’ve been together ever since.  Matt says he always knew she was “the one”, but Katie admits she wasn’t fully aware of how deeply she felt for him until he went out on a date with someone else.

    Matt surprised Katie by proposing at the Outer Harbor on her birthday at sunset.  He’d planned it for months, and even though the day was cold and grey, and her ring hadn’t arrived yet, he improvised with a quarter machine ring and a good bottle of wine.  Of course, she said YES!

   They allowed my crazy, adventurous personality full reign for the wedding day and I hope everyone loves the results.   I wish Matt and Katie all the best in the future and thank them for allowing my wife and I to share in their special day.
