The couple spruced up white napkins with their monogram stamp, a brilliant idea for personalizing plain linens (don't do this on rented ones!). The menu cards were the finishing touch to the place settings.

Elisabeth & John in Chelsea, MI

Childhood friends and former Chelsea, Michigan, residents Elisabeth and John reunited at Elisabeth's brother's Colorado wedding -- she was a bridesmaid and he was a groomsman. They hadn't seen each other since Elisabeth's family moved when she was 14. The Bride Elisabeth Fusco, 25, realtor The Groom John Carter, 28, management consultant The Date June 16 After eight years apart, it was love at second sight. Though, they had to return to their new cities: DC and Chicago, respectively. John vowed to visit her. Elisabeth was shocked when John called the next week to make plans. One faulty train, a missed flight, and a rebooked flight later, they became a couple. After a year of long-distance dating, Elisabeth moved to Chicago to be with John. A year-and-a-half later, John lured Elisabeth to their home state of Michigan for his mother’s retirement party. On the way, he pulled over by a park and wanted to walk around. "I argued because it was snowy and cold, but he practically dragged me out." He led her to a gazebo, and dropped to one knee and proposed. Once she said yes, they went to their favorite restaurant, The Common Grill, where both sets of parents were waiting to celebrate (the retirement party was all a ruse!).
