Samantha Simmons, 29, School Psychologist, Long Island, New York
Christopher Spata, 29, ABA Therapist, Long Island, New York
We both met while studying our undergraduate degree at St. Joseph’s College on Long Island. My now best friend of 10+ years was a mutual friend and essentially the reason we started talking.
I thought he was weird lol (he had long hair at the time). He thought I made a lot of weird faces (I’m very animated) but also that I was cute and easy to talk to.
When we realized how comfortable with each other we were even after just a short time of dating. We felt like we had known each other forever.
Chris took me on a picnic at a park near his house on our 7th anniversary. He suggested we go on the swings, and as I was walking towards them, I turned around and he was on one knee holding a ring box.
It didn’t have a specific style, but was very classy, elegant, and simple.
Burgundy (the girls wore this) with some navy, ivory, and dark pinks.
Not that I can think of.
The menu, the invitations, and choosing the gifts for our bridal party.
When we were introduced as the new Mr. and Mrs. Christopher Spata in front of all of our family and friends.
Yes we did and we were very happy about it. It gave us a lot of extra time after the ceremony because we had taken so many pictures beforehand.
