Nicole Cornetta and Eric Foster
Married in New York, New York on April 28, 2012
“He likes to tell people I picked him up at a bar!” says Nicole Cornetta. Eric Foster laughs: “As soon as I saw her I felt an immediate connection.” The truth is, the couple actually met at a wedding and immediately hit it off. They exchanged numbers and Eric didn’t wait to call Nicole. In fact, he rang her at 8 a.m. the next morning, and as they say: the rest is history.
“Eric works in finance and is often prompted to entertain clients with dinners and such,” explains Nicole. One night they were supposed to meet clients at their room at the Mandarin Oriental New York before heading to dinner at Per Se. As they opened the clients’ hotel room Nicole was completely taken aback as she opened the door to see thousands of cherry blossom trees (a favorite of hers) filling the room. After looking around she realized that Eric was down on one knee, proposing.
And that wasn’t the only surprise: Eric arranged for the head chef at Masa to prepare their favorite meal right there in the room. It “was extremely extraordinary, as Masa was the location in which our first I love you’s were exchanged,” shares Nicole. And just when she didn’t think it could get any better, Eric topped off the weekend, the following night with a surprise celebratory cocktail party at the hotel where they were joined by friends and family to celebrate their engagement.
Their wedding planning included hiring some of New York’s finest to make their special day everything they dreamt of at dramatic Gotham Hall.
