Lillian and Greg live in New Jersey and planned a destination wedding in Amelia Island at the beautiful Ritz Carlton. Greg had been having stomach problems since they landed on Wednesday due to an operation he had a few months ago. After a trip to the ER for nassau meds on Wed night, he was much better. However, on the morning of the wedding he began to feel ill again so he took another trip to the ER…but he didn’t want Lillian to know. He wanted her day to be perfect. Lillian had been told, of course, and she couldn’t wait until their “first look” moment so she could personally check on him and make sure he was feeling better. It was such a tender moment. The meeting of the couple on any wedding day is magical, but this was just extra sweet. When Greg walked into the bedroom of the suite to see her, her first words as she was crying was “Are you okay? Are you sure you are okay!” She was so concerned.
Oh it was precious. Greg was fine, and the entire day was so special and gorgeous. Lillian’s planning with so much detail made for something you would see in a magazine. Can’t wait to post their slideshow! Meanwhile, here are a few pics of Lillian and their FUN wedding party!
How did you meet? We met at work 7 years ago but just started dating the last two and half years
How did he propose? He proposed while we were on vacation in Puerto Rico
How did you choose things like your color scheme, flowers, and cake? I just picked the color magenta/fuchia and went from there. As for the cake, I told the Ritz what kind of cake and filling i wanted and they made it.
Where did you go for your honeymoon? We were supposed to go to Bora Bora (ha ha) we hope to go in May but we are going to Turks & Caicos in November for a mini trip during Thanksgiving weekend.
