“I remember it vividly,” Kristina swoons. “Looking into my husband’s beautiful blue eyes and feeling more excited than ever to start this new journey together. WOW — excuse us while we daydream about these gorgeous New York nuptials at The Water Club! Read on to fall in love with all the details of Kristina and Sean’s big day.
These two started out as good friends, meeting at work and enjoying each other’s friendships for years before falling in love. “My husband planned a date for us on August 25th, 2018,” Kristina said. “We had been talking about walking the Brooklyn Bridge for ages so the date began there and he told me we were having dinner nearby following. We’re about midway and Sean said he wanted to take a picture of me with the skyline and when I turned around he was on one knee! With a photographer by our side, the whole moment was beautifully captured and we continued on to have a celebratory drink at the 1 Hotel and an amazing dinner at The River Cafe.”
A picture-perfect love and dream proposal deserves the perfect wedding gown – and that’s just what Kristina found in Stella York Style #6648! Matte lace and silky crepe create a sheath silhouette with plunging V-neckline and naked illusion back. The sheer V-shaped bodice is created by matte lace with an organic finish that adds a botanical look to the lace. Floating straps meet in the back as the illusion lace forms a tattoo effect on the back.
“I initially wanted a wedding dress with sleeves or possibly off the shoulder that was fitted, sleek, and more simplistic,” the new Mrs. Puddle said. “We wanted a more traditional and classic feel for our big day. The consultant at RK Bridal ultimately found my dress and the designer was there that day as well! As soon as I put the dress on I started to tear up and knew it was the one. The wedding dress had the perfect amount of detail and a beautifully romantic cut.”

The Wedding Day Details
The Puddle’s fell in love in New York. With a Brooklyn Bridge proposal crossed off their bucket list, they knew they had to find the most amazing venue. “The Water Club gave the most amazing views for our ceremony and reception while keeping a classic New York feel. We decorated with Manzanita Trees, lots of greenery and white flowers.”
Kristina’s favorite moment: “being at the altar with all of our friends and family around us during the ceremony. With most of our guests traveling quite a distance to be with us that day, and our good friends sharing our love story and introducing us for the first time as husband and wife, it truly felt magical.”
Here’s to a life of everlasting love (and many more beautiful days spent in NYC!) Congratulations, Kristina + Sean!
