Amy Swanson weds Peter Sillan
The bride, from Dallas, Texas, wore a Pronovias gown with her mother's veil. The bridesmaids wore avocado green dresses by Waters & Waters. Karina Swanson-Van Horn was matron of honor for her sister. The bride is a graduate of Southern Methodist University in Dallas and works in marketing for Time Warner Corp. She also formerly lived in New York City.
The groom, from Fairfield, is a graduate of Roger Ludlowe High School, class of 1987, and attended Southern Connecticut State University and New York University. He works in physical therapy. His best man was Gary Ferris.
The couple met online. The bride is a devoted Dallas Cowboys fan, and the groom is an avid New York Giants fan, so when they spotted each other wearing their respective jerseys in their online profiles they knew they had to meet.
A reception took place following the ceremony at the Union League Café in New Haven. The couple resides in Fairfield.
