Oh Baby: The Julie and Pete Story

 Words + Pictures by Angela Cappetta

Pete and Julie met at a baby shower.  Yes,  a baby shower. The kicker is, she was unavailable.  Three years later serendipity kicked in. Pete, still lost in the effect of Julie's piercing blue eyes, learned she was single!  Not wasting a moment he rang her up.

In Pete's own words, he "was hooked" right away.  The sparks were so strong, they become inseparable.  As their relationship matured, it didn't matter in what order they did things: the baby came after the engagement but before the wedding, and the apartment renovation came before all three, but the dog came first.

Naturally, when the wedding rolled around, what a wedding it was!  150 guests filled Liberty Warehouse as Julie and Pete said their I-do's during a classic New York City sunset.

Julie was smashing in her custom gown, made especially to fit her sweet baby bump. It was sea foam green, a nod to the water which surrounded Lady Liberty, who watched over them from New York Harbor. 

The best part: the first dance included a song about a baby.  Perfect.
