Heather and Tom met while working at Bloomberg. The two traveled frequently together for work, and their friendship blossomed into a relationship. The couple dated for two years before Tom popped the question on a romantic Manhattan evening. The night began with dinner at their favorite restaurant, Vin Sur Vingt, followed by a stroll through a secret garden in the West Village, where Tom got down on one knee and proposed. They celebrated their engagement with a trip to Bermuda.
Ordained Minister James Ihedigbo officiated at the ceremony at the Stanwich Club, where the reception followed. The newlyweds blew their guests away with a choreographed dance to a medley of three special songs.
