Real Weddings



Nadine is a West Indian-American Merchandise Planner for Macy’s living in New York City. Adam, an Englishman, is a former real estate finance professional, currently working for his family’s home development company in the United Kingdom. Adam and Nadine first met at his aunt’s wedding seven years ago in NYC when they were teenagers. Over the next few years, disregarding the distance and life changes, they remained in contact and it was during a trip to NYC in 2011 (November) when Adam finally asked Nadine out on an official date. Nadine says that they had an amazing night and great conversation with no awkward moments, it felt like they were just old friends catching up after years of not seeing each other, it felt complete. It was soon after this revelation when they both started to discover how strong their love for one another was. They travelled back and forth over the Atlantic Ocean numerous times over the next few months maintaining their long distance relationship.

“A year later, we decided that Adam would take that long journey back to NYC for Thanksgiving as this time he will be celebrating with my family and I. Unaware, Adam had arranged for us to stay in a romantic hotel with a great view of NYC setting the scene for a special evening before we went upstate to my brother’s for Thanksgiving,” says Nadine. “After adhering to previous statements from me about not enjoying large public displays of affection, he felt this setting was perfect for what turned out to be one of the most nerve wracking yet happiest nights of his life.”

“When we got in one night after dinner and drinks, he kept going in and out of our hotel room, which I thought was strange, but never really thought much of it as I kept on checking my work emails. We went to bed and early in the morning I woke to him on one knee at the side of the bed looking nervous as ever, as he professed his love for me and asked me to make him the luckiest man in the world by marrying him; of course I said YES! A We had dinner that night to celebrate and made our journey up to my brother’s where we celebrated with my family and told them the good news about our wedding affair.”
