It was all a dream

Hilary & Derek
Amsale Dress: Darcy
Sharon, CT

Derek and Hilary (Hilly) met their freshman year of college when both played on the men’s and women’s varsity ice hockey teams at Trinity College in Hartford, CT. To say it was love at first sight is a bit misleading, given that they met in the basement of a very dark fraternity, but from that moment on something in the stars were aligned as they remained a couple ever since.

They made it through college and even endured 4 years of long-distance as Hilly was in graduate school in Washington, DC and Derek had a job in NYC. Derek proposed in Paris in October 2015 in Hilly’s Grandfather’s favorite park in the magical city. The place was made even more special as Hilly’s grandfather passed away soon after Derek proposed. A year and a half later, the were married near Hilly’s hometown in Sharon, CT.

Hilly wore the stunning Amsale Darcy Dress with a detachable skirt, that allowed her to perform a surprise coordinated dance with her Dad to Mambo #5. To say the 200 wedding guests were stunned is an understatement! Overall, the day was a dream, and Derek and Hilly still can’t believe it’s over. Thank you to Amsale for making it even more special!
