How did you two meet or how did he propose?: On our fifth anniversary, he surprised me with a trip to New York, which is my favorite place in the world. I thought I was just going to work but he drove me to the airport! Our hotel room was on the 20th floor facing the Empire State Building, and he proposed to me in our room in front of the floor to ceiling windows, after dinner at my favorite restaurant. Best proposal ever.
Were you happy with the venue?: Absolutely! The SoHo63 team went above and beyond to make sure that our day was seamless and stress-free. Everything was beautiful, and everyone was willing and able to meet any need or want that we had. I would highly recommend it to any engaged couple.
Describe the theme or color scheme of your wedding, and what you chose for your table setting at the reception: Our color scheme was navy, grey, and yellow. I guess you could say the theme was geek chic. Michael is a neuroscientist and I'm a huge book/Star Wars/Harry Potter/Doctor Who nerd so we incorporated those things into our decor in fun ways. We used microscopes, hardbound books, and glass beakers filled with flowers as centerpieces.
What piece of advice would you give other brides planning their big day? HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER! It's honestly not as expensive as you'd think, and they honestly pay for themselves with discounts from vendors. Even if you can just get a day-of planner it's totally worth it. If anything went wrong I had NO idea about it and our planner was there at our hotel while I was getting ready to bring me food and Diet Coke and champagne. She really spoiled me and it made the day that much easier and memorable.
