Jeannette & Mark in Rye Harbor, NH
Jeanette and Mark literally met by a hair. The stylist at their hair salon played matchmaker and set the two up on a blind date. Sparks flew immediately and the rest is nuptial history.
The Bride Jeannette Cole, 35, self-employed
The Groom Mark Cavanaugh, 44, global sports marketing
The Date September 2, 2006
On the first nice day of fall, the couple and their dog, Cotygirl, prepared for a day of apple picking. While taking a picture, Mark pretended to fit Jeannette and their dog inside the camera’s frame before going to set the camera’s timer. Instead of taking the picture, he was down on one knee proposing to a very surprised bride-to-be.
