We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again, we love a good love story, particularly when love conquers all, even distance. So when Lash To Lens amazed us with gorgeous film from this fairytale love story, we got out our tissues and cried happy tears, of course! Nadine, the gorgeous bride is a West Indian-American Merchandise Planner for Macy’s and resident of NYC. Adam, an Englishman, is a former real estate finance professional, currently working for his family's home development company in the UK. The lovely duo met in their teens, seven years ago, at Adam’s aunt’s wedding and despite the distance, the two lovebirds remained in contact. But, it wasn’t until November of 2011 that Adam returned to NYC and asked Nadine out on an official date. It was then that both Nadine & Adam discovered their strong love for one another and soon began a long distance relationship.
Fast forward a year to Thanksgiving holiday, when Nadine awoke to a very romantic Adam on one knee asking her to make him the luckiest man in the world and the rest…. is a future of love and happiness.
From the bride… “A year later, we decided that Adam would take that long journey back to NY for Thanksgiving as this time he will be celebrating with my family and I. Unaware, Adam had arranged for us to stay in a romantic hotel with a great view of NYC setting the scene for a special evening before we went upstate to my brother's for thanksgiving. After adhering to previous statements from me about not wanting a large public displays of affection he felt this setting was perfect for what turned out to be one of the most nervous yet happiest nights of his life. When we got in one night after dinner and drinks, he kept going in and out of our hotel room which I thought was strange but never really thought much of it as I kept on checking my work emails. We went to bed and early in the morning I woke to him on one knee at the side of the bed looking nervous as ever as he professed his love for me and asked me to make him the luckiest man in the world by marrying him; of course I said YES! (he was still nervous and actually put the ring on the wrong finger) We both started laughing and I took the ring and put it on the correct finger! We had dinner that night to celebrate and made our journey up to my brother's where we celebrated with my family and told them the good news.”
