It all started on MySpace - yes, MySpace - that website that has been systematically replaced by Facebook. Very casually Eileen and Vince began chatting - nothing serious. Then one evening, Vince made Eileen laugh - and she offered to buy him a beer (not because she was thirsty, no no no - but because she had had a bad day at work and he made her day) it was the least she could do - and she really meant it as a friendly gesture, nothing more, however.....
the rest - as they say - is history. Eileen walked into the bar - and Vince fell in love on the spot.....in fact, when he proposed, he took Eileen to the very spot where they had their first date, and popped the question in the very spot they had their first kiss! Awwwwwwwwwwwwww
Oh yeah - he's THAT much of a romantic ;o)
We already have everything we need for our home - not to mention we live in a condo - and while we have great storage space, we do not, unfortunately, have space for a bunch of gifts we might use "some day" - so when Eileen, the avid little planner that she is - found out about a Honeymoon Registry - she knew that this was PERFECT for her and Vince!
What a great way to make our honeymoon really special. To know that each one of our guests added something to our Hawaiian Honeymoon!
We hope to see all of you in San Martin, CA at the Chateau of Richard and Leslie (aka - her cousin's home). They have been close since they were young - and have only grown closer over time. Its going to be one very memorable day and evening and we are very much looking forward to sharing it with all of you.
We want a lot of the details to be a suprise for everyone, and don't want to give away too much. Eileen isn't even telling anyone what her dress looks like! But - as the planning unfolds, stay tuned here for updates......
