In 2007, Moira met Michael. They worked together for the same company in Connecticut and shared the same friends at work. It was when they began spending time together outside of work, however, that they found they had a lot in common. Both Michael and Moira loved to be active and learn. Over time, their friendship grew as they pushed each other to try new things. Moira learned to snowboard in order to keep up with Michael, and he took up swimming in order to compete in a triathlon with Moira.
Eventually, Moira changed jobs and moved to New York. With the move, the two athletes realized just how much they’d enjoyed spending most of their time together, and they now had to actively seek each other out. They were pleased to find that it all worked out seamlessly and felt very natural, which led to a more serious relationship between the two of them. Their time together has been nothing but a fun and exciting ride since it began. In 2012, Mike proposed on the first night of a vacation in Capri.
On a beautiful Saturday in May, the couple stood in front of their most beloved family and friends at the One Atlantic in Atlantic City, and read out their own vows. Moira was the definition of beauty with her hair and makeup done by Bella Angel, and her Pronovias lace gown and Badgley Mischka heels. Her bridesmaids were flawless in their dark blue Amsale gowns from Bella Bridesmaid and bouquets by Rainflorist. Michael could have been mistaken for 007 in his custom tux, while all the groomsmen were dashing in their own personal tuxes.
The reception was put together wonderfully with blue tables, and touches of white found in the flowers and hanging candles above the dance floor. Michael’s mother gifted each seat with her special chocolate chip cookies, and the couple’s wedding cake came from her very own carrot cake recipe. ExtraStep Video captured the night, while Wilson Stevens “Eye 2 Eye” band made the party unforgettable.
