It's almost every little girl's fantasy to be asked, "Will You Marry Me?" in the mecca of romance... PARIS! After all, it is the city of light and the city of love. For Jessica, this wasn't just a dream, it was her reality! Soon after, these two love birds were married on July 11, 2015, celebrating with loved ones at The Village Club of Lake Success.
Read the enchanting love story of Jessica & Brian and get the inside scoop straight from the bride herself.
How we met...
"Brian and I met at a mutual friend's birthday party in New York City. I didn't plan to go out that night but my girlfriends from high school dragged me to the party. Brian immediately approached me (which I now know is not his style) and sparked up a conversation. I thought we were having a good time but all of a sudden the party was over and he was gone. I would later find out that he thought I wasn't interested. Being a very confident young woman, I approached one of his friends and asked where Brian went. When he told me Brian went home, I said "call him." Brian received the call as he was boarding the train home with his friends at Penn Station. As soon as he heard that the pretty blonde from the party wanted to know where he was, he came right back. We spent the rest of the night with a group of friends walking around the city and partying until sunrise. We've been together ever since."
"Brian proposed to me in Paris. We had been dating for 5 years at the time and I was pretty confident that this trip was the perfect time for a proposal. I guessed that he would ask me at the Eiffel Tower or at dinner so I packed my best outfits ready for a night on the town and hopefully an engagement. Brian completely surprised me by taking me to the Pont Des Arts (aka the Lovelock bridge) as soon as we landed in Paris he had made a lock that said, "Jessica, will you marry me? but in typical Brian fashion, he left it in his luggage. Unbeknownst to me, he bought another lock on the street which we put on the bridge. As we threw away the key, Brian got down on his knee and asked me to be his wife! Of course, I happily excepted. He escorted me to a nearby boat on the Seine where we drank champagne and ate foie gras. That night, a limo drove us around Paris and we dined at Montmartre. We ended the night with a kiss below the Eiffel Tower. It was an absolute fairytale!"
