The engagement happened under Christmas lights, but for this couple’s wedding day it was all about the bubbles.

Jane and Watson’s love story goes back a decade when they met through a mutual friend at Georgetown University as freshmen. Their love quickly blossomed after their first date—they saw Garden State at the AMC Theater in Georgetown, and the night ended at nearby Thomas Sweets. Eight and a half years later, during a Christmas holiday visit to one of Jane’s favorite places—Peddler’s Village in Lahaska, Pennsylvania—Watson proposed. Jane loves the town’s Colonial-style village and would take Watson there every year over the holidays to enjoy warm apple cider, window shopping, and wandering under the holiday lights. To complete her fairy tale, Watson proposed outside in the snow surrounded by sparkling lights in a spot she could only describe as “picture perfect.” After about 18 months of planning, the couple tied the knot this past May.
