Introducing the love story and intimate wedding day at Casa Romantica in San Clemente of this beautiful couple – Tracy and Dana.
the love story (from tracy + dana!)
We both went to NYU but did not meet until a couple of years after we graduated. We met at a mutual friend’s “ironic” birthday celebration at the Dave & Buster’s in Times Square. We hit it off by trash talking each other while watching the Angels (my hometown team) play the Yankees (his team) in the playoffs on the TVs. We started dating, moved in after a couple of years, and he proposed on our third anniversary. The following summer, we moved out to LA where we’ve been living for about a year with our sweet dog, Cleo.
the romantic proposal
We were celebrating our 3 year anniversary and he had just taken me out to dinner at one of my favorite places, just around the corner from our apartment. I was probably ready to turn in for the night when we got down on one knee and popped the question. 🙂
