Cute Meet Love Story Alert!

Love Begets Love

Here at Trish Lee Bridal, we love to hear a good "how we met" story, and Jess and Brian's is the stuff that rom-coms are made of.

In her own words, Jess shares with us how she met the love of her life, "We met at my cousin's wedding. He was a groomsman, and I was a bridesmaid. I spotted him from across the room and made sure to sit next to him at the rehearsal dinner. At the wedding, we danced together and had a lot of fun, but we did not exchange numbers." Not one to wait around, she took fate into her own hands, "I made my cousin have a labor day party, and he asked for my number at the end of the party."

Brian proposed six years later in the most down-to-earth fashion because he couldn't wait another day. As Jess recalls, "It was the day before my family was coming to visit us in San Francisco. He got a call that the ring was ready, picked it up while I was at work, and could not wait to propose. Since it was the day before Valentine's Day, he gave me flowers and a card. I read the card in our kitchen, and he wrote about our relationship and how he is excited to spend the rest of our lives together. He also made a joke about how our cat, Penny, wanted to check out my new jewelry. When I turned around, he was on one knee. It was spur of the moment, done in our home in SF, and down-to-earth. I loved it! We ordered some take-out and drank champagne after FaceTiming friends and family."

On their 7 year anniversary, Jess and Brian tied the knot in a backyard ceremony at the groom's parents' home in Long Island. Jess chose to wear a custom Trish Lee Bridal Chantilly style lace trumpet wedding dress, featuring a bateau neckline and an open back. Thank you for making us a small part of your big day. Congratulations to the happy couple!
