Lindsay and Brendan
Hello Family and Friends! We are so excited that you are going to join us (physically or from afar) while we exchange our vows on our special day. We look forward to seeing every one of you and catching up with those that we haven’t seen in quite some time. How We Met: Brendan and I met 15 years ago…in seventh grade! My best friend and his best friend are brother and sister so we shared several memories throughout our younger years. In fact, we went to middle school, high school and college together. The funny thing is, neither of us ever thought about dating during any of those times. It wasn’t until 2010 when I was applying for a job at a local catering company that we ran into each other again. Brendan was having lunch at the restaurant when he spotted me and said hello and we started chatting (mind you we hadn’t seen each other for years). I got the job with the catering company, and we began seeing each other much more frequently. Weekly turned into daily, and before we knew it we were falling in love. How He Asked: The proposal was unlike anything I could have ever guessed. Brendan began by telling me were all (my family and his) going ice skating to support Lazarex Cancer Foundation, his mom’s charity. Thinking nothing of it, I treated the day as if it was exactly that – a fun day of ice skating for a good cause. About an hour into skating, Brendan put a homemade sign (that he made) around my neck that said “I love my boyfriend.” Confused, I, of course, laughed and replied, ”I sure do” and continued skating. Then I periodically started receiving white roses from different family members…eleven of them to be exact. Coming up from behind, Brendan then presented me with the twelfth rose. It was red. He started telling me how much he loves me and appreciates me and then started to skate away. Now I was really confused. He blurted out that he forgot something as he skated back over to me (mind you the entire family and skating rink is watching). He got down on one knee, in ice skates, on the ice, and asked me to marry him. So surprised, it took me a few seconds to process what was happening and then immediately replied with an enthusiastic “YES!” Where's Our Honeymoon?: We are going on a cruise in Italy (From Rome to Venice), arriving a couple days early in Rome before the cruise and leaving Venice a few days late to maximize our mooning with each other. We stop in various ports along the way (Capri, Italy; Positano, Italy; Sicily, Italy; Zakynthos, Greece; Corfu, Greece; Dubrovnik, Croatia) where we intend to do the touristy thing and take in the sights. We are going to take a few cooking classes, too! Below are a few items that we have registered for to make our honeymoon in Italy "molto speciale!!" Additionally, we have registered at Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel. We hope you are all looking forward to our wedding as much as we are; it’s going to be a great day! Thank you for taking the time to look through our wedding website! Ciao, Lindsay & BrendanSonoma, California Corfu, Greece Dubrovnik, Croatia Greece Italy
