The couple
After leading Alison on an Easter egg hunt around their Old Town condo, Paul watched as she opened the last egg, revealing a ring and a note that asked for her hand in marriage.

The details
Aside from a rainbow of fresh flowers, everything—the cake, the invitations, the bridesmaids’ dresses—was in black and white.

The party
Chef Todd Murphy of theWit created the menu for the reception in the Churchill Rounds ballroom. Artistrings provided the ceremony music. The couple took their first twirl on the dance floor to “True Companion” by Marc Cohn.
