Samantha DePuy & Kurt Brower


October 3, 2020

While attending university in Boca Raton, Florida, Samantha and Kurt shared many of the same classes, as both were biological sciences majors. One day, by chance, they ended up sitting next to one another in a lecture, and a relationship was forged. Nearly two years later, Kurt rented out the Naples Botanical Garden and created a special map that the couple followed down their own memory lane, leading them to a terrace where they would create one of their most special memories, Kurt’s proposal. In a custom Italian gown from Opera D’Arte, Samantha said “I do” with Kurt at Hotel Domestique. Their reception was complete with caramel apple-cider mules, a nod to the couple’s favorite drink, and the evening ended with a bang in a dazzling display of fireworks. They remain in Greenville, the town they fell in love with more than two years ago.
