New York Athletic Club Wedding

Maggie+Patrick’s New York Athletic Club Wedding is one you won’t want to miss!  It’s full of NYC vibes, great lavender and citrus blooms as well as lavender bridesmaid dresses and jewel toned bouquets.  Not to mention the beautiful gladiolas and hypericum berries in her bridal bouquet.  And the views and architecture of  This New York Athletic Club Wedding are breathtakingly unbeatable.

How did this beautiful story begin?

Maggie and a group of friends used to watch “The Office” together every Thursday night, starting her freshman year at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. During her sophomore year, one member of the group invited a friend from high school who had just transferred -Patrick. They became close friends, and stayed so all throughout college. After a school dance, just before graduation, something changed and their friendship turned into what would become a beautiful romance.  Sometime later on a typical trip to visit Patrick’s family and their alma mater, Holy Cross, on one of the most beautiful spots on campus, Patrick proposed.

The Proposal

“I was shocked, and forgot to say yes.” says Maggie. “The first question I asked after I realized what was happening was, “do my parents know?!” Yes. Patrick had gone to speak with them the Sunday before. My second question was, “do your parents know?” The answer? “Nope, we’re going to tell them right now!”  The only question that remained to be answered had a more obvious answer.  A “Yes!” of course, from Maggie.

The Highlights

Maggie and Patrick decided to get married at the church she grew up going to two blocks from her parents house where she got ready the day of her wedding. “It was so special to have that time walking from the house to the Church with my parents; bridesmaids up ahead and a group of neighbors tailing behind.” says Maggie.

“The reception was just what we wanted — a big party. We still smile about how so many of our loved ones traveled from near and far to celebrate with us. Everyone ate, drank, danced, and had a great time.”

Maggie is intelligent and caring. She is know for her selflessness in helping others.  Patrick is a classic gentleman of the rarest kind.   He is best know for his acts of kindness toward others.  It’s no wonder these two found one another and fell in love.  And I’m not going to lie, we are really happy they found us!  It is beyond amazing to get to work with such a fantastic couple.  Thanks guys! xx
