“Brett proposed in the most thoughtful way I could imagine,” explained Kirsten while reminiscing on her sweet San Antonio, Texas engagement. Brett popped the big question in the first place they said, “I love you.” The couple enjoyed the intimate moment together before joining their family and friends for a surprise engagement party at the historic Hotel Emma. Later, Kirsten and Brett would find out her parents spent their honeymoon in the same spot Brett proposed. Then, they began planning their timeless black, white, and blush industrial chic wedding with the expert help of Scarlet Rose Events.
Despite growing up over 7,000 miles apart, it was destiny that brought Andrea and Vincent together. Andrea grew up on a farm in Kansas, eventually leaving the countryside to pursue a career in the hotel sales industry in New York City. Similar reasons brought Vincent to The Big Apple. While he grew up in Belgium, a career in the hotel industry also brought him to New York.
When Vincent first moved to the city, one of his coworkers suggested he meet up with Andrea who used to work there too and could offer some great insights. Vincent agreed, and the coworker called Andrea to set everything up (what a great matchmaker, right?). Initially, Andrea had just returned from the Kentucky Derby and wasn’t much interested in grabbing drinks the very next Monday. But, she finally caved and agreed to meet this mystery man.
