Martelle and Daniel met through Daniel’s cousin, who went to college with Martelle. The pair hit it off right away and began dating long distance. But the cross-country commute was too much to bear, so Martelle moved from Manhattan to San Francisco. Eight years later, Daniel proposed at The Inn at GrayBarns on the Silvermine River in Norwalk. The happy couple then celebrated with friends and family at Riverside Yacht Club, where they would host their wedding a year-and-a-half later. The groom’s sister, Annie Blaine, officiated at the ceremony.
The bride, daughter of Peter and Ann Simpson of Greenwich, graduated from Greenwich High School, the University of Richmond and Mercy College. Martelle is a physician assistant in Washington, D.C.
The groom, son of Jamie and Joan Blaine of Maine, graduated from the Taft School, Kenyon College and Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. Daniel is a recruitment specialist in Washington, D.C.
The Blaines honeymooned in Bali. They call Washington, D.C., home.
