Carly and Themis met at work where they started their relationship in a whirlwind of a secret romance and knew it was meant to be pretty quickly when they moved in together just five months after dating- but it was easy for the two of them. “I always think we’re the same person..." Carly told me "but our difference exactly compliment the others’ deficits and strengths” These two share their love of food and drink, talking philosophy, and just laughing together. Themis proposed to Carly at a beautiful bed and breakfast in the Hudson River Valley in a private garden- the most perfect location since this is where the two hope to move and start a family.
Carly and Themis envisioned their wedding being classic, simple and understated and a nod to old vintage New York City as they celebrated and danced the evening away to Frank Sinatra, Doo Wop, and Crooner music, the music they listened to as they fell in love, against the skyline of New York City. They truly wanted to incorporate much meaning and importance into the day, so they wrote their own vows and made sure that they details included were meaningful. Themis and his best man both wore crisp black tuxs while Carly’s ladies wore simple metallic Jenny Woo champagne dresses. The simplicity of their color palate along with Carly holding a bouquet of white roses and her ladies with delicate baby’s breath looked simply sophisticated against the skyline.
