RRP&F: Tell us how you first met? Who, what, when, where and why? Give us all the details.

M+R: We met over drinks at lure restaurant in soho in November of 2013. It was a quick date as Ross was a single father and had to get back home to Gemma. We got on the phone when we got home and spoke every day since.

RRP&F: When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?

M+R: In a way we both knew it could be forever from our first date. Over time the proof so to speak kept building but we both felt there was something special and so we nurtured the connection with great care.

RRP&F: Tell us about the proposal. (Did you see it coming? How long was it in the planning? How did you feel? Nervous, excited, freaking out?)

M+R: We did a lot of the planning together in terms of when was right for our family to get married. There was a general sense of timing and planning together but despite that Ross pulled off a surprise the day of (not easy to do with me!) he and Gemma were supposed to meet me at bloomingdales holiday window opening and he bailed which I wasn't pleased about.. But then I ended up leaving earlier than I said i was going to and totally messed up his plan which was to grab me on my way home and propose on park avenue with a photographer present. Well, he saw me coming so he had to tell me to wait about ten minutes and then I realized it was happening!! I walked around the blocks and then met him knowing it was coming but still, when he grabbed me I had no idea the man standing on the area in the middle of park avenue was there to photograph the proposal. It was simple and romantic and completely joyous.

RRP&F: If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.

M+R: We both do all sorts of silly and quirky things but mostly we have fun, especially with Gemma and our nearly nightly dance parties!

RRP&F: Besides getting married – what's the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?

Celebrating our family and honoring one another and sharing the experience with loved ones.

RRP&F: Anything additional you'd like to add.

M+R: Getting married a mile from our weekend home with the most amazing people was a dream come true. Everything was picture perfect!! We couldn't have imagined anything better.
