"Commuting from New Haven, Connecticut, into Manhattan takes me four hours a day. Yeah, that’s love," says Kevin. Though there was no official proposal, the couple knew they wanted to get married. They went from having a small courthouse wedding to a weekend-long event, with details inspired by the hobnail milk-glass vases that Kevin had inherited from his grandmother.
