Greg dipped Alison during Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald’s version of “They Can’t Take That Away from Me.” The highlight, though, was the band’s remix of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin.’”

Alison & Greg in New York City, NY

Alison and Greg were set up -- by accident. They were invited to their friends’ small group dinner, and they were the only two single people! They wound up sitting across from each other, hitting it off and dating for two-and-a-half years. The Bride Alison Dick, 32, real estate sales The Groom Greg Abovsky, 32, financial analyst On a cool Saturday in March, the two spent the day running around the city, making a stop at an art show. Alison was exhausted by the time they got back to their apartment. Greg caught her completely off guard when he proposed at home. They relaxed for a little while before heading out to dinner with both of their families. Just nine months later, the two were married.
