Cathy & David in Boston, MA

Recalls Cathy, "When we arrived, there were a dozen pink roses in the kitchen with a pink card that read 'Pink roses remind me of the little girl in you'; in the living room there were a dozen yellow roses with a matching card that read 'Yellow roses remind me of the sunny times we share'; in our office were a dozen white roses with a card that said: 'White roses remind me of the purity of our love'; in our bedroom there were two dozen red roses with a card that read 'Red roses remind me of the passion we will always share. Will you marry me?'"

"Since most of Cathy's family was coming from out of town, we wanted the wedding to be held in the city so our guests could easily arrive at the hotel from the airport and make a long weekend out of our wedding," says David. "We decided on the Boston Harbor Hotel because it has breathtaking views."
