Sometimes your friends do know what’s best for you—or at least that was the case for Kristina Dowd and Michael Gethin. The two shared a mutual couple-friend, and eventually, that couple decided to play Cupid. At a summer dinner party, they not-so-subtly sat them next to one another. “I knew coming into that evening that I was about to meet someone special,” says the bride, “but the attraction was immediate. We had very similar interests...and the exact same sense of humor.”
What followed next was the whirlwind-type romance of novels. Just five months from that first meet-cute, Kristina and Michael (both of whom had lost their first spouses earlier in life) were happily engaged and planning a secret wedding on Nantucket Island. We hope you enjoy their incredibly sweet, chic and low-key celebration as much as we did!
