How They Met:

Some say it’s fate that brought them together. Samantha and Anthony said it was the alphabet! They met in dental school. Her last name starts with ‘BO’ and his starts with ‘BR’ so they sat right next to each other.

Anthony told Samantha the morning of, to pack three things – 1 nice outfit, 1 casual outfit, and 1 relaxing outfit. He then brought her to the Fairmont in Pittsburgh (which happens to be her favorite hotel out there).

When they got to the hotel he told her to change into a robe and the happy couple walked down to the spa where they enjoyed a couples massage. When they returned to their room, there was champagne and fresh fruit waiting for us.

Next, they got dressed in their ‘nice outfits’ and Anthony took Samantha to one of the Pittsburgh inclines (which she had never been on). They rode up the incline and he had reservations at Altius (which had been voted one of the top restaurants in the U.S. with a panoramic view of Pittsburgh). Anthony asked Samantha to marry him before dessert came.

Not only did the couple do a first look with each other, which is very popular right now, but they each did a first look with a parent. Samantha with her father and Anthony with his mom. This might be the cutest thing ever, and a perfect way to enjoy a few precious moments with your parents before the day starts to get crazy.

Samantha is stunning in her dress. We love the way it fits her, and all the illusion back paired with parts of the front having an illusion as well. We also are pretty obsessed with the color pallet of the bridesmaids and floral decor. It’s a perfect mix of neutrals desert earthy tones, grayish blues, grayish pinks, grayish purples, cacti colors that is so romantic and classic.
