Peri & Marcus in New York City, NY

Recurring butterflies -- literal ones! -- became a sign to Marcus that Peri was the one. After meeting her at a Chinatown rooftop party on the Fourth of July, Marcus saw a Monarch butterfly flittering around and knew something was special. Over the next two months, as he tried to court Peri, Marcus had run-ins with three more butterflies. (Not a common occurrence in the city!) The Bride Peri Dana, 30, a women’s health nurse practitioner The Groom Marcus DeGrazia, 40, an acupuncturist The Date September 26 The two eventually began dating, and four years later, Marcus proposed to Peri with a surprise candle-lit evening in their apartment. Fittingly, a butterfly symbol was incorporated into Marcus’ wedding ring.
