Bobby and Abby
Our Story
   
Bride's Story
Bobby and I met in Nantucket, MA. I was there with several girlfriends and Bobby was there with his friend Doug. We first saw each other on my second night in Nantucket at The Brant Point Grill. We were both sitting on the terrace and I kept catching him glancing over at our table. Of course, I thought he was a cutie, so I was very happy and impressed when he sent over a glass of wine with a note asking if I had plans for dinner the following night. I looked up and shook my head, no. After dinner, he came over to our table, introduced himself and asked if he could have my number. I gave him my cell number and hoped that I would hear from him.

Bobby called, as promised, and we went out the next night. He took me to a spot on the beach and had the whole thing planned out beautifully. He had a picnic basket, blanket, wine and flowers. We ended up sitting there eating, drinking and talking all evening and have been inseperable from that point on. When deciding on a location for our wedding, it seemed only natural to get married on the very beach of our first date in Nantucket one year from the day we met.

   
Groom's Story
My best friend, Doug and I decided to go to Nantucket on the spur of the moment. We work together and he and I were burnt out from a big project we'd just finished. So, we packed up and hit the road. I'll never forget our conversation on the way out.

Our third evening there, we went to The Brant Point Grill. Interesting enough, I didn't want to go, but Doug did. We were sitting on the terrace, when I saw her. I couldn't keep my eyes off of her and I think she knew that. Every time I glanced over to look over at her, she caught me. Finally, Doug had had enough of me talking about this girl I didn't even know and said that if I didn't do something about it, he would. I called over our waiter, handed him a note and asked him to deliver it with a glass of wine to the beautiful brunette woman sitting at the corner table. My heart felt like it was going to jump out of my chest when I saw her reading the note. She looked up and shook her head, no, which I knew meant that she would be free to go out with me the next evening.

I finally got the nerve to go over to her table to introduce myself and she was even more beautiful up close. I asked her for her number which she wrote on her napkin. I couldn't stop thinking about her the whole way back to our hotel room.

The next day, I knew I had to plan the perfect evening. I asked our waitress at breakfast that morning if she could describe her perfect date. As soon as she said a picnic on the beach, I knew that seemed like her style. I picked her up at 5:00 and we headed down to this spot I'd seen the day before. I couldn't believe how easily the conversation flowed. Of course, the discussion of where we lived came up and I have to admit that I was a little disappointed when she said Boston. However, it looked a bit better when she said she loved NYC.
