Hillary and Seth

How We Met

Hillary and Seth met at a mutual best friend’s house in the Hamptons during the summer of 2013. Ironically, having been in the same place at the same time on multiple occasions throughout the years in Miami, during college, and in NYC after graduating, the two had never actually met before!

Seth had his eye on Hillary throughout the weekend which ended with a first date the following week. Hillary’s best friend had predicted she was going to marry Seth after just one weekend. Fast forward 3 years later and the two have been inseparable ever since.

After a few months of long distance from FL to NYC, Seth finally moved to NYC in the Spring of 2014. The next few years included a new apartment, frequent visits to EJs, Ethos, Sushi of Gari, many summer weekends in the Hamptons, Seth learning how to ski, Hillary watching all 6 seasons of the Sopranos, and trips to Italy, Mexico and the Bahamas.

How He Asked

Seth had been planning the proposal for months without Hillary finding out ANY details (Which if you know Hillary, is a feat in and of itself!) Hillary thought they were celebrating her 27th Birthday with a wine tasting at Porter House that her dad had “won” at a charity auction followed by dinner at the Nomad. Little did she know that was not what Seth had in mind for the night. After running a few minutes late, Hillary met Seth where he was already schmoozing with the Sommelier about which wines they like to drink. After pouring a glass of champagne to start the tasting, the Sommelier walked them through the different wines he wanted to them to taste. While walking through the wine case, he pointed to a “unique bottle” which said “Will You Marry Me?” Before Hillary turned to Seth, he was down on one knee. Hillary clearly said “Yes!”
