What is your story?
Growing up down the street from one another we have always been a part of each other’s lives. From riding the same school bus together in 3rd grade to slow dancing at our 8th grade dance, there always seemed to be a spark between us. When high school rolled around, we had every class together and quickly became inseparable best friends. In college, although it seemed we had moved in separate directions, we found ourselves in the same city. There was always something pulling us together, whether we knew it or not. After reconnecting, reminiscing, and many belly laughs later, we realized we found friendship and love in the same person. We were always meant to be in each other’s lives and definitely more than just friends. We spent our first two years together in Skaneateles (our favorite town!) and weathered two years of long distance eventually landing us in Stamford, CT. One wiener dog later and so many amazing memories together, we are so excited to be married! This is just the beginning of our journey together, and we know now more than ever that we were destined to be together.
How did the two of you meet?
On the school bus in 3rd grade!
What was your favorite memory of your wedding day?
So hard to pick just one! For Brian it was our intimate first look, for Brittany it was exchanging our vows in front of all of our loved ones. We also cannot forget about our dance floor, it was electric!!!!
What were the main influences behind the style of your wedding, it’s location and your venue choice for your big day?
Location was a no brainier for us. We always knew Skaneateles held so much importance to us. We branded our wedding style as “Classic Modern.” Also wanted guests to feel loved and appreciated from the moment they arrived and for there to be a timeless feel to the entire day.
What would your top tips be for somebody planning their wedding?
At the end of the day do whatever makes you as a couple happy! Take in every single moment and always remember what your day is truly about, your unconditional love!
What made you decide to hire a wedding videographer? Any tips for couples on the fence for a film?
