Nicole & Alex
Your First Names: Nicole & Alex
Wedding Date at Mediterranean Manor: September 23, 2017
How did you meet each other?: The first time I met Alex was at my house, I was about 9 or 10 years old. I was playing with my younger sister while my older brother and his friend were in his room. Little did we know, that my brother’s friend just so happened to be my future fiancé.
However we were to young to even think about each other as more then just a common friend. Years later, my younger sister saw Alex at a his friends house down the road packing his things to move to his apartment, she went over to him and they began talking about me. My sister got home and quickly told me she gave him my phone number and where they were going to be that night and that we were invited. So of course we went. From then on we began dating, in secret for a bit until my brother became okay with it. So thanks to my brother for being his friend and having us meet, and thanks to my sister for matching us up.
Tell us about your proposal !: We took a drive out to Montauk beach, one of our favorite places to be. Usually we go camping but we decided to go to look at the lighthouse. Of course on the way it was too foggy to go into the lighthouse so we decided to go walk by the jetty. As soon as we started walking on the rocks he called my name to turn around, and once I did I found him on his knee with a big smile on his face. He asked and I couldn’t be happier to say yes. (We also got a nice parking ticket while he was proposing, which was pretty expensive, but a funny story to say the least).
What is your wedding décor theme and colors?: We are looking to do a vintage/rustic theme. However we just want to have fun. We are still unsure but we think our colors are going to be red and gray.
Why did you choose Mediterranean Manor as your wedding venue?: The outside of Mediterranean Manor is what stole our hearts! Even though it cannot be guaranteed with the weather, we fell in love with the beauty. The inside cocktail hour room is beautiful. And the reception room is perfect. The people we spoke to, were patient and answered all our questions and made us comfortable to know this was our place. Of course the all inclusive package made our bank account happy as well, we have been to a few events and the service has always been outstanding, so why not have such great hospitality on our special day.
What is one piece of advice you have to other brides planning their wedding?: Ask questions, even though you feel like a pain, it never hurts to ask something. I love to plan ahead of time and when I have a question I automatically write it down or email someone from Mediterranean Manor and they answer me within the day, sometimes minutes, which puts my mind to ease.
