Rebecca and Fred were introduced by their two best friends. As it turns out, Fred’s best friend married Rebecca’s best friend. The four of them went out for dinner one night and that was the start of everything. Rebecca and Fred had an instant connection. Soon after, they had their first date at the Library Wine Bar & Bistro in Wallingford, Connecticut. Since then, they have been together for almost two years. Fred said it was clear she was the one, just from her personality. “She has such a big heart and we complement each other so well,” he says. They have shared so many special moments together during their relationship, including trips to Italy, Bermuda and the Dominican Republic!
Fred proposed to Rebecca in their own apartment with the help of a friend. Fred says he had been thinking about it for a long time, but started looking for a ring three months before the proposal. The two went out for drinks at Fortina, a restaurant across the street before going to dinner. Fred said he “left” the gift card to a restaurant in the apartment and they had to stop back before going to the restaurant. Rebecca must have thought he was going crazy since he also “lost” the keys to the apartment that day -- really, he met their friend at a Starbucks earlier to give her the keys to the apartment so she could decorate it while they were away!
They walked back to get the gift card and found the apartment jazzed out with decorative lights, flowers, candles, and rose petals. Fred got down on one knee and asked Rebecca to marry him. She said YES! It was the most romantic and special night of their lives. Rebecca was so surprised... and also slightly concerned about who "broke" into their apartment to decorate it!
Rebecca is in LOVE with her pave set oval ring! They say the process with The Clear Cut was easy and stress-free. As for their wedding, they plan to have it in September of 2020. They found a great venue in Connecticut and cannot wait. Congratulations Rebecca and Fred -- we are so happy for you and cannot wait to hear more about your wedding!
