Daniela and Joseph, congratulations on your wedding!

Their story was inspiring to many of us here at Angel Project and thus we are featuring their wedding in our blog so that you can learn about their special love for each other. Daniela and Joseph's wedding ceremony and reception were both held at the absolutely stunning Mayflower Grace in Washington, CT and starting with an excellent vibe early on in the day till the later evening they remained the center of joy wherever they went!


How we met...

One night, randomly, we found each other at the same bar in Soho, NY. Daniela was ordering a drink at the bar, I was next to her, we were two complete strangers shoulder to shoulder. Something about her really caught my eye, and then fifteen seconds of unexpected courage happened and I spoke to her. Due to that moment of bravery, we spent all night talking, laughing, having an amazing time. We talked for so long, that all of our respective friends had already left and the two of us stayed until they closed the bar. We didn't want the night to end, there were so many things in common and so much more to talk about. We were so connected, and right then and there we decided to go for some pizza and later on we finally ended our long night by taking the subway together. We said goodbye at her stop and then I continued my journey... But not without asking her for a second date.

The Proposal...

April 12th, 2015. It was our anniversary, which we celebrated ever year, and we always do something special. This time we decided to recreate our first date. We had dinner at our favorite restaurant, went to the bar where we met, had fun, and remembered every moment we had on the walk home. At least that is what I [Daniela] thought. Little did I know that Joe had planned for so much more to happen... On our way home we stopped at Madison Square Park, which has always been very meaningful to us. We have shared many moments there and it's our favorite park in the city. It was completely illuminated by these beautiful light sculptures. The weather was just right and as we were walking around, right then and there, Joe got onto one knee and gave the most beautiful speech and proposed to me. I didn't know how to react he completely caught me off guard! I couldn't help the tears of joy and as I was crying, I kept screaming "yessss!!!!" over and over again. I'm sure the people passing by must have thought I was crazy (I was rather crazily in love). It was such an emotional night! It was just perfect!!! 

The Wedding... 

Our inspiration for the wedding decor, invitations, flowers, and every single detail that went into it came from both, the art movement "Impressionism" and French "Country Style". We wanted for everything to be romantic, chic and spring for example by using fresh palette colors. Our dream was always to have our wedding, both ceremony & reception outdoors at a garden. We just wanted trees and flowers surrounding us, we both love nature and being in a green environment was a must. We found The Mayflower Grace and felt in love. It was exactly what we were looking for.

Honeymoon...

We are foodies, adventurers, art, design & architecture lovers and we love to travel and experience new cultures. This is why we chose to go to new places that has always been in our bucket list: Munich, Germany - South Africa & Paris, France. 


Love can be waiting just around the corner so take a chance like Joe did and perhaps you may find the love of your life as well.
