Meghan McGregor & Chris Blancato

Our Story

Christopher and Meghan met in college about five years ago and became good friends. One night when they were talking, Meghan mentioned how Chris was such a catch and needed to find someone. She graciously, albeit blindly, offered to help find him someone. After a long pause, Chris told her that he was actually interested in her and asked her on a date. Surprised but thrilled, Meghan accepted. They went to sushi (for those of you who know Christopher, he hates sushi but heard it was Meg's favorite) and had an amazing time. It sounds a little cheesy, but they both say that it was like fireworks - by the end of the date, they both knew they'd spend the rest of their lives together. Four years later, Chris proposed and they could not be happier to be marrying their best friend! This is where you come in...

Our Honeymoon

Destination(s): France, Italy

It has been a dream of ours since we started dating to travel to Europe together, and we are so excited that with the help of this registry and our family and friends (that's you guys!) we are able to have such a beautiful honeymoon! We are spending two and a half weeks in France and Italy- 6 days in Rome, 3 days in Tuscany, 3 days in Florence, and 6 days in Paris. As most of you know, we are food enthusiasts, so we are probably most looking forward to eating our way through these cities! In addition, we hope to bike/vespa/wander/explore this amazing terrain. We feel so blessed and humbled to have you in our lives and as a part of this experience. We also would just love your recommendations for restaurants, sites, and such if you have been so lucky to spend time in any of these places!
