Kimberly Siewers & Daniel Avila
July 14, 2007
Sacred Heart Parish, North Attleboro, Mass.

ABOUT THE COUPLE

How they met:
Kimberly and Dan met during their sophomore year at Northeastern University. Kimberly's roommate and he were both in the pharmacy program. Dan would go over their dorm apartment after dinner and eventually never left.

How he proposed:
Dan proposed in a very unconventional manner. He and Kimberly were staying at the Crowne Plaza in Hartford, Conn., for a Pearl Jam concert. They were talking about how long they had been dating when she asked, "What, are you going to propose to me tonight?" Dan responded with "Actually, yes," and he pulled the ring box from his bag and proceeded to ask Kimberly on bended knee.

Bride's occupation:
Kimberly is a full-time hygienist at Boston University Dental School.

Groom's occupation:
Dan is the pharmacy manager/pharmacist at Rite-Aid in Bridgewater, Mass.

THE CEREMONY

The ceremony:
Sacred Heart Parish in North Attleboro, Mass.

The gown:
The strapless, satin, ivory-colored gown featured an organza overlay, embroidered bodice and antique-beaded accents. A fingertip-length veil and tiara completed the ensemble. Kimberly also wore her grandmother's antique wedding rings as a necklace.

The bouquet:
Kimberly carried a cascading bouquet of ivory roses with white stephanotis and delphinea.

THE WEDDING PARTY

Bridesmaids:
Jennifer Siewers, sister of the bride; Cami Siewers, cousin of the bride; and Janelle Avila, sister of the groom.

Groomsmen:
Roger Avila, father of the groom; David Siewers, brother of the bride; and Greg Siewers, brother of the bride.

THE RECEPTION

Number of guests:
120

The reception:
Raffael's in Walpole, Mass.

The cake:
The three-tiered strawberry Gran Marnier-flavored golden cake featured ivory buttercream frosting and was decorated with ivory Swiss dots and bordered with ivory pearls. Fresh flowers topped the cake.

First song:
"I'll Always Be Right There" by Bryan Adams. The couple looked for weeks and listened to hundreds of songs before finding this song - the one they both agreed on. They liked the lyrics and it wasn't an overused wedding song.

The menu:
Hot hors d'ourves started the cocktail hour followed by a choice of baked scrod or chicken francese. Chocolate bon-bons and ice cream accompanied the cake.

What made the day unique:
The couple's first dance. Dan and Kim had taken dance lessons for weeks prior - and had choreographed the entire dance - but they hadn't told anyone what they had up their sleeves. The day before the wedding, they kept asking people if they were ready for their "big surprise." The couple is pretty sure they shocked all their guests.

Most touching moment of the day:
The vows. The father-daughter dance was pretty emotional as well. Kim thinks it was then that her father realized his daughter was actually married.

Honeymoon destination:
Sandals resort in Antigua.
