Cherryblossom dating Vegas in, Vegas seek dating who wants cherryblossom
For some, Vegas means getting married by an Elvis impersonator to a stranger, only to have it annulled 12 hours later.
But when they finally met, each had lived there for a few years. The foodies and arts-and-culture lovers actually met at a food festival downtown, where a mutual friend introduced them.
She found the Northern Virginia native mysterious, and thought it was unusual that he moved from the Washington area to Vegas looking for an adventure. As for Nick, he thought Marylou was the belle of the festival — funny, popular, and with an infectious laugh.
Over a portobello mushroom burger, they got to talking, and that was it—the deal was sealed. Shortly after, the couple shared a kiss on their first date while on the top floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel overlooking the Vegas Strip.
Their second night, they had dinner at a French restaurant overlooking the city and Hyde Park. After dinner, Marylou tried to hail a cab, but a black Mercedes pulled up instead.
Nick had hired the car to take them around sights like Buckingham Palace and the London Eye at night while they sipped champagne. Before they could head back to their hotel, the driver stopped at the Tower Bridge. The two got out to take in the views, and when they reached the middle, Nick got down on one knee.
They met unexpectedly in las vegas, but their cherry blossom wedding cake was a tribute to dc
A year-and-a-half later, the couple sealed the deal at a quintessentially DC wedding. While exchanging vows at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle, the bride wore a gown passed down to her by her mother, and the groom wore a classic Hugo Boss suit. Despite the May rain forcing the wedding party to change venues for their pictures, the day was magical, says Marylou and the photos at the back-up spot, Union Station, ended up being her favorites of the day, she says.
The festivities continued at a romantic and classic reception at the Key Bridge Marriott with views of the city. Upon arrival, guests received a deck of cards wrapped in gold with a ribbon and their name and table s a nod to Las Vegas. After such a Washington-centric celebration, it was time to get out of town, and the couple honeymooned via a safari in Nairobi, Kenya.
