A chance encounter in New York City blossomed into an incredible love and a wedding this past weekend as Maria and Brent married at the Monastery Event Center!
Maria moved several times to a few different cities for her job and had settled into NYC life with ease. She was having brunch with her girlfriends on the Upper East Side one day when one of her friends tells her that they’ve spotted a guy that is just her type. Maria took a leap of faith and sent Brent a drink. They ended up spending the entire day together in perfect NYC style: brunch, a boat ride on the Hudson, rooftop bars with views of the Empire State Building, only to end the night with karaoke and a sweet kiss.
The one little catch was that Brent lived in Orlando and was only in New York to visit friends. They began a long distance relationship that included hours of FaceTime chats, trips with their families, and just 6 short months in, Maria took one last leap of faith, packed up and moved again, but this time for love. Brent proposed under a blanket of Spanish moss and cyprus trees not far from their home in Orlando and their newest adventure was set to begin!
I’m so excited for Maria and Brent, and their wedding day was perfect. They were such troopers as the storm clouds rolled in and the rain stopped us from getting most of their portraits outside, but the Monastery Event Center is such a gorgeous space that it didn’t matter! Cheers to the happy couple!
