Michelle & Jeff's Beautiful Wellesley Wedding at the Gardens at Elm Bank

Here's another beautiful fall wedding in Wellesley, Ma.  We had a great time spending the day with Michelle and Jeff.  Here is a little sneak peek from their big day as well as a few words from the couple. Make sure to scroll all the way down to watch the slideshow!!  Enjoy!

Tell us how you first met- who, what, when, where, why?  Give us the dirty details- 

We had our first date in the Seaport District in the spring of 2014. We shared all that we had in common – growing up a few miles away from each other in the small town of Sharon, MA and attended the same high school and college. At the time we met we also worked in the buildings next to each other in Boston. We knew it was meant to be!

When did you know he/she was the one?  Was there something he/she did? etc-

Jeff: I knew Michelle was the one when I figured out she laughed at all my jokes, especially the bad ones. And didn’t laugh to make me happy, she actually thought they were funny. How could I resist?

Michelle: I knew Jeff was the one when I got the feeling of always wanting to spend more time together.


Tell us about the proposal.  Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning? how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?

It was a cold December evening and Jeff planned a dinner date at Legal Harborside where we first met. His best friend had dropped us off there and was strangely lurking around while we walked away. Jeff asked if I wanted to take a walk before going inside and I suggested that we just get a drink somewhere else since it was so chilly out. He insisted on talking a walk and took my hand making a sharp turn for the boardwalk around the restaurant. We walked down to where we had our first kiss and Jeff knelt down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I was completely shocked and his friend who was watching from afar could hear me scream with joy from down the street!

Tell us the one thing you love most about each other-

Michelle: I love Jeff’s ability to light up any room – he has such a fun and upbeat spirit that is contagious.

Jeff: I love how Michelle is always making sure all of her loving family and friends are taken care of. She goes out of her way whenever necessary to always make me feel happy and loved.

If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does-

Michelle: One of Jeff’s quirks is that he always puts on his emergency break after parking somewhere without fail even if it’s the flattest road and no hills in sight.

Jeff: Michelle’s biggest quirk is that when we get froyo she always, and I mean always, has to put three gummy worms on top. It’s a must.
