Rachel & Brendan

Italy Destination Wedding

Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea in Taormina Mare

“He proposed at crown casino, a great story actually. Our typical date night is basketball at the arcade, dinner and a movie. So as far as I knew we were heading to Crown which is a fancy place for basketball and a nice dinner. Brendan had already organised with Crown how everything would go. We were playing basketball in the arcades and a worker came up and challenged him and said he would win a price if he won a game against him. They drew the first game and he won the second. Another man had a plate with a lid on it and removed the lid which revealed a box, Brendan turned to me, got on one knee and asked me to marry him. He also had our favourite song playing at this time.”
