After bonding over their sense of humor, Danielle and Greg knew it was meant to be. While they originally were looking forward to tying the knot at the end of 2020 with a large wedding, they changed their plans, picked a new date, and pulled everything together in just two months — all for the safety of their loved ones. “We picked our new wedding date to be as close as possible to our anniversary, also the date of our engagement. But once we decided on our new wedding date, we had only two months to put everything together. To be as safe as possible, we were focused on an open-air setting with private bathrooms and minimal staff. But we also wanted to ensure it would be beautiful and full of joy. These pressures forced us to prioritize the decor, traditions, and guests that were most important to us,” exclaimed Danielle and Greg.
They choose to have a rooftop ceremony; reciting their vows as the haziness of the clouds set in. “Celebrating our love in a natural garden in the middle of a vast city was absolutely perfect,” stated the pair. “Our ceremony was intimate and perfect set against the backdrop of New York City on the rooftop.” Perfect it was!
Jewel tones, stylish attire, fresh floral designs, and floral-patterned linens filled the space with so much beauty with their watercolor cake simultaneously fusing with the aesthetic while making a statement too! All the while the room had a relaxed feel, making it comfortable for all to enjoy the celebration.
Recalling the best parts of the day they mentioned, “The sense of joy and love that infused the whole evening. Perhaps in part because this was the first time we had all seen each other in many months, everyone was so excited and happy to be together. Our families and close friends really got the chance to spend time together and get to know each other, which might not have happened at a large wedding.” Concluding with “While this wasn’t the wedding we had started out planning, it was better than we ever could have expected.”
As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born.
I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
