Elena & Mark
eHarmony made the initial match but fate opened it’s doors and allowed love to happen.
Elena, already a past member of eHarmony was reluctant to rejoin but after much coaxing from her best friend who insisted they register together, she agreed. After a week with no intention of actually meeting someone she was matched up to Mark. After a long eHarmony get-to-know you process Elena & Mark decided to go on their first date. Following a wonderful time the couple decided to try it again. It was after a few dates that they discovered Mark had also been matched up with her best friend, who was in the same industry as Elena. He decided against contacting her due to potential conflicts, which coincidentally worked out for Elena!!
Elena & Mark took their time get to know one another. It was a few weeks in while vacationing in Costa Rica that Elena realized this was more than a casual encounter. He asked her to phone him when she arrived and she did. He asked if they could speak again while away which clearly indicated his intentions. She phoned him everyday while on vacation realizing there was a mutual and deep connection. Inevitably “I love you”s followed soon after.
The proposal was simple and perfect. Mark intimately proposed at Elena’s apartment just the two of them. It was a moment that will be embedded in their memories.
Elena & Mark were married on June 30th 2012 at St. Mary’s Church in Manhasset. Elena rocked a Ulla-Maija Couture gown from the Wedding Salon. Their reception followed at the lovely Port Washington Yacht Club.
Thank you Elena & Mark for sharing your special story and day with us!
