Rowe and Chris's Wedding at The Douglaston Manor- Sunday, June 9th, 2013

At the end of January of this year, I received an inquiry via our contact form. It was from a bride getting married at The Douglaston Manor in June. She had found us through our link on Douglaston's website. I replied back promptly with two quotes. I followed up  a couple of times, but to no avail, it fell off the map so to speak.  I figured, it was after all the beginning of February by then and even if she contacted me in a few weeks, it would be alright.

During the month of March, I received an email from a groom regarding his wedding. Before I replied back, a sense of deja vu kicked in and I went back into my file of previous quotes to delve a little more. As it turns out, this was the same couple, who had inquired back in the end of January.
Honestly, I'm so sure that I may have even seen Chris and Rowe during one of the Bridal Showcases Douglaston holds at the venue during the year. It was deja vu two times over for me and it was well worth it.

We all finally met at Douglaston a short time after that.  That was about the end of March.  It was the first of our many meetings at Douglaston.

Fast forward to Sunday, June 9th. After a week or so of weather which was anything but rainy, we were blessed with great weather.  Seeing both sides of the wedding party emerge from the limo (albeit at different times) brought a lump to my throat. There is nothing like seeing two people in love getting ready to say I Do. 

The love between Rowe and Chris was evident from the first day I met them. And even more so when during their first dance together, he scooped her up in his arms. Seriously, it doesn't get anymore romantic than that!

I wish them nothing but all the happiness in the world! It was a pleasure working with Rowe and Chris on their special day! On behalf of all of us at The Blissful Bride, thank you for letting us be apart of it!
