The ceremony took place in a large white church with floor-to-ceiling windows. The only floral arrangements Danielle and John used were two, large, white urns on either side of the altar filled with white and cream snapdragons, lilies, and roses with greenery.

Each table was topped with a short, wide, floral centerpiece made of pink dahlias, roses, and ranunculus. The napkins were ivory, while simple votive candles added a nice glow.

Danielle & John in Darien, CT

It was summer love for Danielle and John, who met one night at a local bar. As they got to know each other, it turned out that they had a lot of the same friends and interests. A few weeks later, they went out on their first date and stayed so long they closed down the restaurant. The Bride Danielle Magliari, 28, executive assistant The Groom John Polcer, 37, contractor The Date October 1 Two years later, the couple went with family on a Mexican Riviera cruise. One night, while they were by the pool, John excused himself and went to grab something. When he came back, he suggested the two take a walk. On their way, John suddenly stopped, dropped to one knee, and proposed with a ring. “I kept saying ‘Are you serious?’” Danielle says. When she realized he was about to slide the ring on her finger, she said yes.
