Having developed a passion together for the many fine wineries on Long Island, Jessica and Rob were married at there favorite winery, Laurel Lake.
When we asked Jessica how she felt about her wedding flowers, here was her answer:
Bella Flowers was phenomenal. The flowers were delivered on time, even with a last minute change of the hotel. I was able to describe the look I was going for, and Bella was able to choose the flowers to bring to life my vision. The flowers were beautiful and fresh and I received many compliments about the arrangements.
Thank you Jessica!
It looks like a funloving wedding day!
Jessica shared their story with us below:
How did you meet?
We met at Gardner’ Park
Where did you go on your first date?
Rob wanted to take me to Montauk Point after he found out that I had never been there. He couldn’t believe that I grew up on Long Island but had never been to “The End”. On the way out to Montauk, we stopped at Duckwalk Vineyards. Our first trip along the south fork of Long Island ignited a passion for Long Island Wineries, so it seemed only appropriate to have our wedding at one of our favorite vineyards, Laurel Lake.
How did Rob propose?
We had been dating for just over 4 years. That year Rob helped plan a surprise 30th birthday party and I vowed that I would top his surprise. I planned a 30th birthday vacation to St. Lucia at a golf resort and kept the surprise until a few days before we were to travel. It turns out the day I surprised Rob with his trip, he had just gotten home from picking up an engagement ring that he had designed month’s prior. His plan was to propose within a few weeks at Palmer Vineyards. He changed his plan and proposed on his surprise birthday vacation. Needless to say I was dumbfounded!
If there is one thing you know you’ll never forget about your wedding day, what would it be?
We will never forget the feeling of seeing each other for the first time in our wedding apparel.
Is there something you would do differently that you can share with other couples?
A vineyard wedding is huge undertaking. Try not to stress because everything will work out.
Where did you go for your honeymoon?
We went to the Mayan Riviera. We stayed the Valentin Imperial Maya all inclusive couples resort. Mexico was absolutely beautiful. We even got to swim with whale sharks, the biggest fish in the ocean. (How exciting!)
Thank you for sharing your story with us, Rob and Jessica. It was a pleasure creating your wedding day flowers. We wish you the best of life together.
