Sara Borsari, an intensive-care unit nurse, didn’t catch the bouquet on her cousin’s wedding day—but she met David Nutt, the groom’s brother, regardless, and sparks flew. After a 13-month relationship, David, a physical therapist, surprised Sara with a Christmas Day proposal at the National Cathedral. Ten months later, a classic wedding, complete with monogram details and a surprise performance by a bagpiper, followed in Virginia.
