New Yorkers Marry in Macy’s Handbag Aisle | Department Store Love Story

Posted on: Mar 28

Wedding Ring ExchangeSantina Bowers realized every woman's dream this week when she was married in the handbag aisle of Macy's Herald Square store.

It sounds like a strange place to tie the knot, but the story behind the nuptials is very romantic. California born Santina first met her groom, New York City police officer Moise Naolo, while she was visiting the Big Apple in 2009. They were both admiring the same floral arrangement at the Macy's flower show. A conversation led to the exchanging of phone numbers, which led to a long distance affair of the heart.

A year later the couple returned to the flower show, and Naolo proposed in style. With a little help from Macy's, he posted a sign in the store window which read "Santina, will you marry me?"

How could she possibly say no? She moved to New York shortly after, and the pair began to plan their big day.

Considering how instrumental Macy’s had become in Santina and Moise's love story, the department store wanted to do what they could for the couple's big day. They hosted the wedding, which was naturally held during this year's Macy's Flower Show. They also offered up a wedding gown from their bridal salon, a cake from Martha Stewart Weddings, and Excellent Polish Jewelry and Dior cosmetics for the bride.

Can't you just imagine being married amongst all those designer purses? I can't think of anything more romantic!
