Caitlin and Michael met while they were both working in New York City. Caitlin knew she loved Michael at first sight! She recalls their first meeting, “I knew he was super special and there was something about him I couldn’t stop thinking about. He took a little warming up to love me back like that because he was so focused on work. But, after three months of patience and pursuit, we finally overlapped for a group dinner. After one too many margaritas, I made the first move and kissed him. We were dating three months later.”
Michael proposed on July 20th in New York City at Pier 25 overlooking the Hudson. They had planned to meet for drinks at a restaurant called Grand Banks, which is an old sailboat docked on the water with “the best rosé and seafood around,” Caitlin says. She shares that she thought this night was just like any other date night.
“I arrived to the Pier and saw Michael standing at the end of it with a huge smile on his face. I was thrown off because I thought he was on his way, but I knew that something super special was going to happen. After walking down the pier to him, Michael grinned and started sharing his reflection of us and our relationship. He got down on one knee and proposed. It was the most amazing 10 minutes of my life!” After dinner, Michael surprised Caitlin even more by having 20 of their closest friends at a wine bar down the street to celebrate with them!
They chose a destination wedding in Milwaukee because a lot of Caitlin’s family lives around there. Every single part of this wedding was elegant and classic. My favorite details had to be Caitlin and Michael’s wedding looks. They both put so much detail to create a timeless yet unique style. Caitlin looked stunning in her Elizabeth Filmore dress and Michael looked equally amazing in his Theory velvet tuxedo jacket! There is no denying it, this couple is super stylish!
Congratulations Caitlin & Michael! You both deserve a lifetime of love and happiness!
