Monteverde at Oldstone was the setting for Yvonne and William’s romantic garden tent wedding. It’s a stunning venue located just over an hour outside of NYC. The ceremony backdrop was like something out of a fairytale. It is filled with lush beautiful trees, gorgeous stonework, and stunning mountain views. In addition, there’s quite a bit of history to the property. While I could go on and on about our favorite details, I’ll let Yvonne tell the story.
How did you meet?
Even though we went to the same college, William and I didn’t meet until we ended up at the same company a few years after graduation. We were friends at first, but then one day, he threw a note over to my desk asking me to dinner. It read “Dinner Friday?” and had three check boxes – one for Yes, one for No, and one for Maybe. I checked the Maybe box and threw it back over to his desk. And the rest of is history!
How did he propose?
William lured me to Brooklyn from Manhattan saying that we were going to visit a friend. As we waited by the water enjoying the beautiful view, he got down on one knee and proposed. As I said screamed yes, I saw that he had hired a professional photographer to capture the moment. Then we spent the next hour taking photos around Dumbo, and then I was surprised again when our families were waiting for us at dinner!
