Tell us about the bride – Where you grew up went to school, where you work.
Sierra grew up in Fair Lawn, New Jersey with her dad, mom, and brother. She had many loving pets growing up, from rabbits to dogs. Her love for animals started there and grew into a great career. She has worked in a pet supply shop, an animal shelter, and now has 10 years under her belt working at the Oradell Animal Hospital.
Also about the Groom – Where you grew up went to school, where you work.
Liam grew up in River Edge, New Jersey with his mom and dad. He has been a working audio engineer and musician for over 20 years. Though always making music, he’s spent the time holding many different jobs throughout the years. From a young age he worked with his father delivering light fixtures throughout the five boroughs and surrounding metro area. He spent a few years waitering, bartending, and catering throughout Began County. There are fond memories of his days in sales, audio installation, and drum/electronic repairs for a 100 year old local family owned music store. Of course there were many sleepless weeks in a number of recording and mastering studios. Currently, he’s going on 11 plus years as an audio engineer/editor for CBS in the Hells Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. Spending his time restoring, editing, and mixing audio for international release, he’s alway listening to something. Liam and Sierra live together in their 102 year old craftsman house in Oradell, New Jersey slowly but surely restoring it back to its historic past.
How did you first meet? Who what when where why? Give us the dirty Details.
Sierra and Liam first met thru a mutual friend from Sierra’s work. Their friend heard that Sierra had taught rock climbing as one of her first jobs. As Liam was obsessed with climbing, it was inevitable, their friends needed to pair them together. Their first contact was through a number of emails. They’ll never forget those emails. They were quite humorous, witty, and fun. An organic back and forth was obvious from the first key stroke. Finally finding the time, the first date Sierra was taken into the city to a jazz club, a first time for her. Liam unknowingly helped her order her first beer; he had no idea she was just 22 at the time- he was 28. The beers, dinner, and music were enjoyed until very late at night. The night is still remembered vividly and repeated many times throughout the next eight and a half years, which brings us all the way to their wedding day.
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did? etc.
Sierra and Liam definitely felt something very special on their first date but knew when they were “official” on 3/17/08
How did he propose? (Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning? How did you feel? Nervous, excited, freaking out?)
I had no idea it was coming. I even signed the UPS form! I was totally oblivious. He took Tre (our dog) and I hiking to our favorite spot in New Paltz, New York. Liam had stopped me to give Tre some water. Tre hopped over with the ring clipped to his collar and I thought I was going to faint. I instantly started shaking (while trying to give my dog water) and crying! I hadn’t felt this way in close to 8 years! It was a wonderful day and I loved every moment of it.
Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.
Our ability to be 100% completely who we are with each other at all times. Most definitely the constant unyielding wit that keeps us laughing daily. [and that he loves my cat that he inherited as much as i do 🙂 – Sierra]
