The Romance...
Jonathan and I met through a mutual friend, Jared. He introduced us one night while out with friends on Church Street in Burlington. After meeting Jonathan that night, he insisted on taking me on out on a date. Jon arrived at my college apartment with a bottle of wine and a bouquet of flowers in his loud, blue Subaru. We became best friends that summer. After meeting my family Jonathan asked me to be his girlfriend. I was so excited! Since then, we have cheered together at the US World Cup game, caught fish in Salem Lake, downhill skied with our families, dressed up as gnomes for Halloween, traveled to Florida with friends, spent summer weeks on the coast of Maine and created many fun-filled memories.

The Romance...
We went to high school together and had mutual friends. After college we all went to Vermont for a long weekend snowboarding, where Drew fell in love, and Kelly had no idea. Six months later we all went on another group vacation to Lake George New York where Kelly fell in love with Drew, and from that moment on we were inseparable.

SOMETHING OLD

Basin Harbor isn’t merely a resort. It’s a tradition, passed down from one generation to another. People have been getting married here for more than a hundred years, and it’s a special and unique place that transcends time and trends.

SOMETHING BORROWED

Basin Harbor has been in our family since 1886 and we can’t wait to share our home with you. The list of amenities at Basin Harbor goes on and on, but for a wedding, the best part is giving your family and guests the chance to stay in one place and enjoy each other’s company – not just for the ceremony and reception, but for the whole time they’re here.

The Romance… 
“Jon arrived at my college apartment with a bottle of wine and a bouquet of flowers in his loud, blue Subaru….”

The Proposal… 
“He got down on one knee and asked the question I’ve been dreaming of since we met. I can’t remember exactly what my initial reaction was, but it involved a big “YES!”, crying, laughing, hopping in circles, kissing and giggling with excitement. He had driven 2 hours that day to ask my father’s permission for my hand in marriage.”

Alison&John-Strang-main-image

The Romance…
In the modern day of technology, John & Alison's paths crossed due to a friend's attempt to provoke John to make a jokingly remark on a random Facebook picture he tagged John on…. John being easily provoked followed through with his friends wishes and commented on a picture of a young lady taking a bite out of a woman's foot (meanwhile John did not know either of them). While we won't get into John's remarks it struck an "FB friendship" that would soon grow into much more. While never actually engaging in conversation with each other, John would randomly tag Alison on pictures of himself only to get a one word comment or so in regards to the picture. While being out on the town one night in the lovely city of Waterbury, John was stumbling into Vasi's fine establishment for after hours while this pretty young lady was on her way out. John shouted out from across the parking lot, "Alison!?!" Mind you they have never met in person … she responded with "How do you know my name?" then quickly recognizing him said – "OHHH Facebook"… John charmingly let her know that she was much prettier in person than in pictures as she squeezed his muscles and said "you're much bigger in person than I expected" …. Then they parted their separate ways not even exchanging numbers... real smooth John … only to receive an early morning Facebook message from Alison titled "bf" ….text me. 203.XXX.XXXX ….. then the rest is history. Fast forward to 4 years and 10 months later .....

How and where did you meet? Eddie and I met in Philly about 10 years ago.  It’s a funny story, we met through my ex-boyfriend who was Eddie’s landlord at that time.  We remained friends through several other relationships and then we were finally single at the same time, and decided to give the dating thing a try.  Best decision we ever made!!

What was the proposal like?The proposal was so unexpected and hilarious.  We all joke that he did it “Eddie style”.  We drove up from Philly to Vermont for a friend’s birthday weekend.  We were all siting on the deck of our friend’s house and Eddie walked out the screen door and tripped and fell right in front of me.  I was so concerned about him and trying to pick him up, and also wondering why no one was helping him.  I even grabbed the ring out of his hand and placed it on the tablet next to me, not realizing what I had just had in my hand.  It finally dawned on me that I had just put an engagement ring on the table, and that is when he asked me.  In front of all of our friends.  It was perfect and hysterical at the same time.  I still laugh when thinking about it.
