Whose heart doesn’t melt at a story of two college sweethearts falling in love and getting married? I know mine does. Maggie, a Lilly Pulitzer store owner, and Chuck, a finance professional, began their relationship sophomore year of college, as they both attended Northeastern University.
Chuck knew when he wanted to propose, but had no idea how it would play out. Though he did know one thing- he had to ask Maggie’s father. On his way home from Thanksgiving, with the intention to propose that day, he met up with Maggie’s father, Jack. Chuck had bought the ring over Thanksgiving; he just needed that approval, which he undoubtedly got.
In the Uber, on his way home, was when he finally decided how he was going to propose. He told Maggie they were going to meet friends for drinks at The Envoy Hotel before dinner. He called the Envoy to request the rooftop deck, which is normally closed. He had champagne and tuna tartare already up there and had someone even record the proposal! How sweet is he to think of that! The whole thing was perfect. Of course, Maggie gave a resounding “Yes!”
To celebrate, Maggie decided to tag along with Chuck while he traveled to London on a business trip. They got to enjoy the city and even get had their own portrait session! Chuck surprisingly got really into it. What a great way to kick off their engagement!
Having such fond memories at the Envoy, Maggie and Chuck decided to host their engagement party there as well! As for their ceremony and reception, those were both held at the Fairmont Copley Plaza and let me tell you it was stunning! From the romantic purple and pink lighting carried throughout both the ceremony and reception, to the Lilly Pulitzer robes for Maggie’s bridesmaids. Everything was tailored to Maggie and Chuck, and best of all, you could truly feel the love between them.
Congrats to M & C on their big day and thank you to all the vendors who helped make it happen!
