Spring had sprung and love was in the air. The recycled, coffee-saturated, phone-ringing office air. No, this isn’t another story of a scandalous workplace romance. This is the story of a girl, Kate, who thought the young man who worked in the office was cute… for her little sister. Alex worked in Rose’s sister’s office and after getting to know him, Kate realized that Alex and Rose had a lot in common. Kate arranged for the three of them (how romantic) to have dinner in Harvard Square. After several months of friendship, Rose attended Alex’s college graduation in May of 2000, after which they said our goodbyes. Alex was moving back to Connecticut for the summer and then to New York City in September to conquer the world. Rose, on the other hand, was about to embark on her senior year of high school in New Hampshire. Romance shmomance. It would never work. They kept in touch over summer and in August, Alex invited Rose to visit and see his band play. Romance shmomance, yeah right! Undeniable sparks flew, and as they say, the rest is history. After a year together, Rose moved to New York for college… and Alex.
Alex proposed on their seventh dating anniversary. They spent the better part of the past year traveling and enjoying their engagement before finally settling into “negotiation talks” about this wedding also known as the case of Boston Bride v. NYC Groom. The two settled out of court and decided to get married in neutral territory — Mexico!
We love the tropical Los Cabos details of this wedding and the dresses, chuppah, and flowers. Planning a destination wedding doesn’t mean having to forgo Jewish traditions either! Rose and Alex were still about to have the Jewish wedding of their dreams while on vacation with their favorite family members and friends!
Mazel tov, Rose and Alex!
