Christina DeFilippo and Raja Tarabishy had an “in-state-desination” wedding that epitomized their sense of style and elegance – with a vintage vibe.

The Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, CT, gave them the quintessential setting for the summer wedding they dreamed of, and they loved the perfect “weekend getaway” feeling the venue provided.

Christina and Raja met as two of the founding members of Pi Sigma Epsilon, a professional sales and marketing fraternity at UConn, and they started dating at the end of Raja’s senior year.

The couple moved to West Hartford Center – centrally located between Christina’s Fairfield County family and Raja’s family in the Northeast corner – in early 2009. West Hartford’s parks and shopping centers are often the backdrops for Christina’s style blog, Oh So Glam.

Even after being together for 7 ½ years, Raja managed to surprise Christina during what started out to be a blog photo shoot at the West Hartford Reservoir on a mild day in December 2014. Raja put his camera down just long enough to get down on one knee.

You can see additional photos and read all about the proposal at www.ohsoglam.com by searching for “perfect day.”

Christina beautiful sense of modern and tasteful style has made her blog, OhSoGlam.com, highly popular. She also has more than 77,000 followers on Instagram. If you’re not already one of them, follow her at:[email protected]
