October 22, 2015

Josh and Carlo met online through a gay singles social network. Josh introduced himself and gave Carlo his number. They had their first dinner date at Mr. Chow’s in midtown Manhattan and have been together ever since.

A July 2015 U2 concert at Madison Square Garden was the setting of Josh and Carlo’s proposal. Josh got to the arena early and asked people sitting around them if they would take pictures when he popped the question. Towards the end of the concert, U2 performed “With or Without You.” Josh took off his shirt and underneath was a shirt that read, “I wanna get married, U2?” Then, he got down on one knee and asked Carlo to be his husband.

The grooms have always dreamed of having their wedding on the water, so they picked a venue that they both love on the Long Island Sound. The ceremony will be on the beach, so they are hoping for clear skies. They are expecting between 150 and 200 guests, so they chose a venue that could comfortably seat that number while still being close to both families.

Josh and Carlo are taking an organized approach to their planning, making lists of their priorities and discussing their budget as they go. They recommend that all couples should enjoy the wedding process and learning things about each other that they wouldn’t have known before. Also, be aware that engagements and weddings can be a cause of strain or stress on a relationship and a family. Josh says, “Accept it, allow space for it and try not to lose sight of the big picture.”
