Our story begins in 2010 on snowy February Day in Manhattan. Before heading over to attend the Fresh Air Fundraiser, Michael stopped for a bite to eat at his favorite local restaurant, Nelson Blue. Heather happened to be having dinner at the same restaurant celebrating her friends birthday. By chance, we met, and very soon after, fell in love. We were married on the Amalfi Coast, Italy on May 19th 2012. We celebrated for 4 days with 110 of our closest family and friends from around the world. We value our relationships with relatives and friends immensely and they wanted to make sure our wedding was a magical experience for all. It was a day we will never forget.
We live in a three-level town house in New Jersey. Our community is diverse and multi-cultural and only an 8-minute ferry ride to Manhattan.
Our private community has 3 pools, playgrounds and hosts multiple children's events, including a Halloween parade, Christmas parade with Santa, movie nights in the pool, Easter egg hunt, and more.
We also have a weekend home in Pennsylvania, where we spend time enjoying being in the country.
Heather is very close with her immediate and extended family, who reside in the New York area (fathers side) and Liverpool, UK (mothers side). Heather's mother splits her time between PA and FL. Heather's father passed away when she was two but is still very close with his side of the family. We enjoy visiting Liverpool, UK to see her extended family.
Michael is of Swiss descent. He moved to the USA in 1979 with his parents and sister, whom all still reside in USA and are America citizens. They remain close with their Swiss roots but all are Americanized. We travel back often to the Alps as a family-to celebrate Christmas, enjoy a Spring ski trip, or a summer hiking holiday. Michael's parents reside in New Jersey while Michaels sister lives with her husband and two children in Maryland.
