Emily Abraham & Michael Dubowski

June 29, 2019

I think I met the one tonight,” Emily Abraham told her parents over the phone after her first date with Michael Dubowski, an online dating match who completely took her by surprise. Little did she know Michael was on the phone with his parents that night sharing the same sentiment. The spark they immediately felt only grew, and after two years of dating, Michael was ready to propose. He planned a week-long road trip to Washington D.C. and New York City, deeming the trek the ECE—East Coast Extravaganza. Unbeknownst to Emily, Michael had plans to make the ECE his East Coast Engagement. He got down on one knee in Central Park, and she tearfully and delightedly exclaimed, “Yes!” as he slipped the ring on her finger. In honor of their engagement locale, Emily donned an elegant off-the-shoulder ball gown from New York designer Rita Vinieris at the wedding, which was held at Noah’s of Greenville. After showing off their moves with a choreographed dance at the reception, this fun-loving couple slid into a 1956 Rolls-Royce and rode off into their happily ever after.
