Real Weddings {New York}: Aimee Grant & Michael Guzman! – Blackbride.com

Who says you can't find real love online! Michael and Aimee did just that when they met on eHarmony.com in 2009.  They both had been on the site for several months and Aimee had even given herself a one month deadline to stay on the site. Within that month she received Michael’s profile. They chatted and decided to meet in person. On their first date, Michael took her on a tour of the Bronx. Along the tour they stopped at Classon Point, where they saw two swans floating down the shoreline.  Aimee said she knew there was something special about Michael then and they have been together ever since. Aimee and Michael planned a wedding that they told their friends and family was an engagement party! Check out this classic NYC "surprise" wedding captured by Maximillian B. Nucci Photography .

Place of residence: New York, New York

From the Groom:
It was absolutely a great day, literally. It was about 60 degrees for a November day, allowing the photographers and cinematographers to capture great footage of us, the wedding party and family with the picturesque back drop of Huguenot Lake.

 

What makes your love special?

We love and accept each other  faults and all. We bring out the best in each other. We are each others yin & yang.

From the Bride:
Overall my wedding experience was amazing. The day turned out to be more than I ever could have imagined. I felt so much joy to see how beautiful everything was. It was great to see friends and family on such a momentous occasion.   It was a true representation of our relationship.

Your best/most memorable moment:

We both agree the most memorable moment was how surprised guests were when they realized our swanky engagement party transitioned into a wedding celebration.  We had some guests run to the ATM to give us monetary gifts (LOL!).

Advice for a Bride/Groom on their wedding day:

Remember this experience is about you as a couple. This is your day, take it all in and enjoy yourselves.
