Amanda and Sam both lived in New York City and had many mutual friends. Thinking Sam was a terrific guy, Amanda played matchmaker and introduced him to one of her girlfriends. When that date was less than successful, and realizing that Sam was a real catch, she set him up a second time—with herself. Two years later Sam proposed to Amanda after they landed in Nantucket for Labor Day Weekend. Moments later both of their parents, who were on island for the weekend, toasted the couple over drinks and dinner. Reverend Lynne Kramer officiated at the ceremony at Belle Haven Club where the reception followed.

The bride, daughter of Thomas and Maxine Armstrong, graduated from the Greenwich Academy and University of Virginia. Amanda works for Axcess Worldwide in New York City.

The groom, son of Jay and Stephanie Wilson of Baltimore, graduated from Gilman School, Williams College and Dartmouth Business School. Sam works for Northern Trust in New York City.

The newlyweds spent their honeymoon in Nicaragua before returning home to Manhattan.
