An Elegant Waterside Wedding at The Liberty Warehouse in Brooklyn, New York
Victoria Frasier (28 and a teacher) met Matthew Frank (34 and an accountant/CPA) on December 30, 2010 at a bar in New York City, and the two started dating shortly there after. On March 8, 2013, Victoria went for her routine Friday afternoon manicure, choosing a bold blue hue, straying from her usual pink. "The thought 'Well Matthew isn't proposing tonight so it doesn't matter what my nails look like' actually went through my head," says Victoria. Matthew had other plans. As Victoria was resting before their date that evening, Matthew came in and laid down alongside her. He leaned in and asked Victoria "Do you know what today is?" to which Victoria replied "no." Matthew then exclaimed "It is the 800th day we've known each other!" "Matthew, being the spreadsheet-loving accountant that he is, has kept track of the number of days since the beginning, so this was not unusual to hear from him," says Victoria. Matthew then presented Victoria with a solitaire round diamond ring, set on a pave band, and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Victoria screamed in celebration, eventually making out the word 'yes' and the two began celebrating with champagne. After the private proposal, the pair dined at the sushi restaurant where the pair ate on their first date. Over the course of their 18 month engagement, Victoria and Matthew planned a summer wedding to be held in New York City. The two said 'I do' during a Catholic ceremony at the Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York City, and invited guests to celebrate at The Liberty Warehouse in Brooklyn, New York. "In all the years I’ve dreamed of my wedding day, from when I was a little girl to the moment Matthew proposed, I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day and night," says Victoria.
