– July 2, 2016
Anne Lynn Bednarski and Paul Alan Comorosky met through Match.com. “I was always one to knock dating sites because I never truly believed in them until I met Paul,” Anne says. “He was too good to be true. I knew three months into dating him that I would spend the rest of my life with him. He completed me!”
After moving in together in 2014, Paul proposed in October of that year. They were in North Scituate to pick apples at a farm, and he insisted on going to find Fuji apples on the other side of the property.
“Once we got to the other side of the farm [a farm employee] explained to us that we needed to follow the signs to the Fuji apples. As we were walking, none of the trees had apples on them!” Paul convinced her to keep walking, and at the top of the hill were 15 pumpkins carved with “Will you marry me?” “I immediately said ‘Oh my gosh! How cute, someone asked someone to marry them here!’ But when I turned, it was my prince on his knee asking me. I couldn’t believe that he planned such an elaborate proposal for me, one that I will never forget!”
They were married July 2 at the Gazebo near The Towers in Narragansett, with a reception that followed at The Towers. They love the beach and picked The Towers the day after their engagement, Anne says. She wore a Christina Wu satin mermaid-cut gown with Swarovski crystal detailing. “The back of the dress sold me! It created a heart-shaped cut that I fell in love with.” The bridesmaids wore chiffon hi-lo strapless dresses by Pretty Maids, while the groomsmen wore suits from Men’s Wearhouse. The festivities had a beach theme, and included a two-tier lemon raspberry cake with two beach chairs surrounded by sea shells as a topper.
For their first dance as a married couple, Paul and Anne danced to “Tenerife Sea” by Ed Sheeran. Anne says her most cherished memory of the day is “Seeing my groom when I walked down the aisle.” Her advice for future brides? “Take it all in. The day goes by so fast! The day is about you and your husband so don’t worry about making it to each and every table. Enjoy yourself!"
