A Traditional Wedding at The Simsbury Inn in Simsbury, Connecticut
Cara Roberge (33, a patient care coordinator) and Jeremy Egbert (34, a scientist) are among the many couples who met online. In this case, it was eHarmony that brought Cara and Jeremy together for their first Starbucks date. As Cara collects Irish Belleek porcelain pieces, Jeremy put the ring in a Belleek box and proposed after they watched the Fourth of July fireworks in Boston. “I realized she was going to take the lid off before I could get down on one knee! So I nicely grabbed it out of her hand, getting a puzzled look in the process, and started my “speech”, eventually getting down on one knee and opening the lid. She said yes!” says Jeremy. Within four months, they were wed. The couple had a traditional church ceremony and reception in Simsbury, Connecticut filled with white, silver and amber accents. “We were going for classy and elegant,” says Cara. They decorated the white Ethel Walker Chapel with two large arrangements of white hydrangea, roses, lilies of the valley and pink lavender. Afterward, the couple and their 60 guests traveled to The Simsbury Inn for a reception complete with a plated dinner, photo booth and three-tiered chocolate chambord raspberry torte wedding cake. Each of Cara and Jeremy’s friends and family members left with a box of chocolate hearts from Lake Champlain Chocolates.
