Stacey and Brian first met as neighbors, living in the same building for five years before ever speaking. She – yes, Stacey – is actually the one who made the first move, leaving her phone number on Brian’s car. Just like a modern-day princess... taking things into her own hands.

Thank goodness that when it came time to celebrate her birthday, their first official celebration together, Brian did so in grand form. The would-be groom got down on one knee, with poetic prose, Champagne, and the ring... to which Stacey said: "yes."

The couple decided the historic Castle Hotel & Spa, situated just outside of New York City, atop the highest point in Westchester County, would be the the ultimate venue for their fairy tale backdrop. Next came the dress... Stacey found her Mori Lee by Madeline Gardner dress at RK Bridal - the perfect look for a castle wedding. On her big day, Stacey turned to Janet and Lilly from BridalGal for her flawless hair and picture-perfect face.

Later - after the wedding - Brian’s favorite memory was the first look at his bride and seeing how everything came together before their guests arrived. And for Stacey, it was walking down the aisle and seeing her family and friends smiling faces and knowing that she was walking towards her future husband.
