Annette and Dan met at a party in 1996 and soon began dating. Three years later, they moved in together. Two years after that, they went their separate ways. "I was ready to get married," says Annette, a designer and art director. "He had cold feet." Five years later, in 2006, a mistake brought them back together when she sent him an email that was actually intended for someone else. They cautiously began talking again and then dating; a year later, Dan proposed. Annette went to work gathering ideas for their summer wedding at the boho-luxe Bowery Hotel.
