Real Weddings | Closter, NJ

What was love like before the Internet? These days, we see so many online-inspired romances, that instead of asking, “How did you meet?” we should ask couples, “Which site brought you together?” After all, this was the case for today’s Real Weddings bride and groom. When mutual friends connected David with Rona on Friendster.com, David was initially intrigued by Rona’s experience living in exotic places, which included everything from Key West to Israel. They decided to meet, and Rona was impressed with David’s genuine interest in her. A relationship blossomed, and the couple dated for over a year.

One night they had planned to go to dinner with their parents, but when Rona arrived at David’s apartment, he was late getting ready and suggested she catch up on the latest episode of 24, a show they both loved to watch. Rona quickly discovered that the show he’d put on wasn’t 24 after all, but a 24-style video of their first date followed by a slideshow documenting their time together as a couple — complete with theme music! When it was over, David asked Rona to report to the “situation room” (his bedroom) and proposed to her in Hebrew and English, presenting her with a diamond that was a family heirloom. This is a proposal that would definitely make Jack Bauer swoon!

Mazel tov, Rona and David!

    I always love reading about the proposals—some of these fiances are so creative. This looked like a beautiful wedding. The flowers were magnificent. I’d like to see more wedding cake pictures too.
