His story: Paul Clifford, 38, is from Ellicott City. He is a customer service representative and Realtor for the Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate. His father, Jack Clifford, lives in Las Vegas.

Their story: Heather and Paul met at Long & Foster 71/2 years ago.

"We worked in the same office," Heather said. "We struck up a friendship and it went from there."

They live in Finksburg with her 10-year-old son, Dalton Segar, as well as their two cats, Phineas and Ferb, and an American bulldog named Scout.

The proposal: While on a trip to visit his father in June 2013, Paul proposed to Heather at the fountains at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

"He pulled out a ring and proposed," she said. "I knew it was kind of coming. I was definitely surprised and extremely happy."

The venue: The couple were married before 20 people at Antrim 1844 in Taneytown. Ninety people attended the reception at the same location.

Flowers and decor: The couple went with a color scheme of gray, black and pink. "They were just colors we liked," Heather said.

Heather picked out assorted flowers within the color scheme from Cedar Hill Florist the day before the wedding. "I put together the bouquets," she said. "I've been going to Cedar Hill Florist my entire life."

Heather said that she wanted to keep the wedding fairly simple and classic.

"It was my second wedding," she said. "I kept it simple. It was low-key."

Her dress: Heather wore a strapless gown with a corseted back, beaded bodice and detachable train by Sottero and Midgley from Betsy Robinson's Bridal Collection in Pikesville.

Bridesmaids dresses: The women wore gun-metal gray, tea-length dresses from Love It! at Stella's Bridal & Fashions in Westminster.

Men's attire: Paul wore a black tuxedo from Men's Wearhouse. His groomsmen also wore black tuxedos with added gray vests from Men's Wearhouse.

Food and dessert: Antrim 1844 catered the meal, which included garlic-encrusted sea bass, filet, mashed potatoes and green beans. The couple opted for an ice cream bar instead of a cake.

Music: Ian Lade was the DJ for the reception. Heather and Paul chose "And I Love Her" by The Beatles for their first dance.

Special touches: The party didn't stop at the reception. Guests continued the celebration in the venue's pub, where they ordered pizza.

The couple intends to take a honeymoon in the future. They are deciding on a location.
