Constant Ray Of Sunshine In My Life  | Wolf Oak Acres | Vernon New York Wedding Film | Stephanie and Joshua

What is your story?

Being a police officer and a physician assistant in an emergency department, we both have crazy schedules, but it works for us!  When we are off together we enjoy spending time at local coffee shops, finding the best treats in town, and walks at the park.  We love country concerts, beach vacations, Disney World, and time with family and friends. 

How did the two of you meet?

We were introduced by Steph’s sister, Jen, who is a nurse at a local hospital. One night Josh was working a detail at the hospital, and Jen thought he was cute, so she decided to ask him out for Steph!  Jen arranged a date for us over five years ago, and the rest in history!

What was your favorite memory of your wedding day?

Although the entire day was amazing, we both agree that the moment when we finally got to see one another at our first look was the best! That feeling of finally seeing one another in addition to having a few quiet minutes together made it a very magical.

What were the main influences behind the style of your wedding, its location and your venue choice for your big day?

We had always talked about choosing a wedding venue where our family and bridal party could stay over and have an after party right on site.  So when we saw the cottages and the lodge at Wolf Oak Acres in addition to how beautiful the venue was in general, we know it was the perfect fit for us!

What would your top tips be for somebody planning their wedding?

Try to make the planning process as enjoyable as possible, so you do not find yourself wishing it away.  Start early and plan ahead to avoid feeling rushed and super stressed.  Also, throughout the process, remember what the entire day is all about, the actual marriage!  Some of our favorite parts of wedding planning were obviously the dessert and food tastings, but also our dance lessons and our pre-marital counseling with our pastor.  Starting one year out, we also went on a special date night once a month to count down to the wedding.  We tried to pick restaurants that at least one of us had not been to.  No only was this a lot of a fun and built up a lot of excitement, but it was also a great time to check in each month about ideas for the wedding and what was next on the do to list.  

What made you decide to hire a wedding videographer? Any tips for couples on the fence for a film?

Everyone had told us that the day would come and go so quickly.  We did our best to take in every moment we could, but we knew hiring a videographer would help us enjoy some of the moments we missed as well as relive the most amazing day for the rest of our lives.  We would certainly recommend  that it be high on the priority list for everyone!

Anything else you would like to share?

We knew just by looking at Gavin’s sample videos that we would be thrilled with our final product.  In addition, Gavin is literally the kindest person you will ever meet  and so easy to work with. We 10/10 recommend him!
