How did you meet?
We met through Hinge, Alex had recently signed up for Hinge for the first time, while Jon went on many Hinge dates, and made sure to swipe for Alex after seeing pictures of her perfect dog Joey.
What is your proposal story?
Jon knew that Alex didn’t want a public proposal so he planned on doing it in the apartment. Jon also knew that he wanted to incorporate Alex’s father into the proposal, he passed away on 9/11. Jon started the morning by going to his memorial at WTC and taking a video of himself asking him permission and telling him how much he loved his daughter. Jon then sent the video to Alex, which ended with “now I will propose to you” and Alex said yes in their Apartment with Jon’s brother there to take images of the event.
Tell us a little a bit about your wedding
We wanted to get married in Westchester, as Jon is from the area and Alex had gone to Westchester during weekends as a child. We wanted something colorful and classic in terms of style and vision.
