Beach Fete: Elizabeth & Michael in Cape Cod, MA

When Liz and Michael met in 2004 in the groom’s hometown of Montreal, Canada, it was love at first sight. Five years later, Michael popped the question in the couple’s New York City apartment, which he had transformed into an ultra-romantic setting, complete with candles, flowers and champagne. “The proposal was perfect,” recalled Liz. “He got down on one knee and I said yes.” The ceremony and reception were held at the Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club in Cape Cod.

The bride and her dad shared a special moment before the ceremony.

Liz and Michael said "I do" while blending traditions beneath a floral-bedecked chuppah. "At the ceremony, it was so meaningful to have my father read from Corinthians 13, followed by the Jewish tradition of breaking a glass in honor of Michael's family," said Liz.

"After our ceremony, we walked on the beach alone. I'll never forget our first moments as husband and wife," said Liz.

For a one-of-a-kind look, the couple had their best friend design all of their printed stationery to capture the beachy feeling they wanted.
