Diane, 30, who works in public relations, and Jeffrey, 26, a graduate student in philosophy at SUNY, both from Brooklyn, met after he answered her posting on Craigslist. When Diane told us how she met boyfriend Jeffrey through Craigslist, we had to ask for the entire story!
Finding love – or even a quick fling – was not Diane’s primary motivation when she placed the ad for a roommate in her leased Bedford-Stuyvesant brownstone. Around 35 people responded, and Diane found herself particularly interested in the witty response of Jeffrey, a philosophy student recently back from studying in Germany. It was rather awkward, because Jeffrey ended up coming to see the apartment at the same time as Diane’s cousin.
But Diane loved his tenacity. He made some joke about anticipating a fight to the death, which really made her laugh. She liked him because he was smart, good-looking and kind of sweet. That night, she told a girlfriend she had a crush on Roman. At first, she didn’t want to offer him the room because she knew that it could be a romance killer.
In the end, it wasn’t an issue! Diane’s cousin decided he wanted to move in after all. He was family, so Diane decided to keep with the original plan. She eventually called up Jeffrey to tell him the news but she was happy to show him around the neighborhood. Jeffrey was disappointed he didn’t get the room, but gladly took the tour as a consolation prize. We are so glad he did!
On December 1, 2019, Jeffrey and Diane decided to get married! They invited Around Town Entertainment to play at the wedding at the very romantic Le Chateau. Le Chateau offers both historical details and modern luxuries. This magical 25 – acre estate was the perfect background to a beautiful wedding for the wedding their once in a lifetime celebration. It felt like a rare jewel where past and present come together: the timeless elegance of a country estate with the sophistication and service of Manhattan!
The reception was held at a private, lushly landscaped garden with beautiful arbors overlooking the hills of the Hudson Valley. The magnificent ballroom venue took our breath away and was absolutely perfect. Not only was the venue beautiful with a grand entrance filled with votive candles and lanterns, rustic cocktail hour room, picture perfect sunset, stunning ballroom with fairytale chandeliers, spacious bridal suite), but the music was top notch too!
Around Town Entertainment brought in Around Town Band to perform for the evening. They accommodated every song request to truly make the wedding special. They played hits from John Legend to Elton John while the guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. We overheard many comments from the bride and groom on how wonderful the music was. The music kept everyone dancing all night! What a stunning venue and absolutely perfect place to get married! We couldn’t have performed at a better wedding!
