What is your story?
We met on an app and quickly began sending lengthy messages to each other throughout each day. We decided that for our first date we would meet up for a hike (Mt Severance in Schroon Lake, NY). From that first date forward we both knew there was something special and different about one another and before we knew it we were spending every weekend with one another. We would take turns driving the 2.5 hours to and from one another’s residences (Emily in Indian Lake, NY and Kristen in Burlington, VT). We did this for just under two years before taking the next step. After Kristen graduated with her Master’s degree, she moved to Blue Mountain Lake, NY to live with Emily. Shortly after the move, Kristen got her dream job in Indian Lake, NY as a mental health counselor. We got engaged in January 2020 (Emily proposed first) and spent the next year and a half planning our dream wedding. We are so unbelievably happy to be Mrs. And Mrs. Wade!
How did the two of you meet?
We met on a dating app called “HER”. Neither of us were looking for something serious at the time, but once we met one another that quickly changed.
What was your favorite memory of your wedding day?
Kristen: Seeing Emily as I walked down the aisle and partying with friends and family!Emily: Our first look, seeing Kristen walk down the aisle, and partying with friends and family!
What were the main influences behind the style of your wedding, it’s location and your venue choice for your big day?
We wanted a rustic and elegant venue surrounded by the mountains and found that in the Whiteface Club and Resort. We also wanted our wedding to be set in our favorite season; fall.
What would your top tips be for somebody planning their wedding?
Be patient with one another and try to remember the bigger picture; you’re getting married! On the day of the wedding, don’t forget to take in every moment.
What made you decide to hire a wedding videographer? Any tips for couples on the fence for a film?
We fell in love with Gavin’s work after viewing two wedding videos he produced for members of Emily’s family. We have always wanted amazing pictures and videos to remember our day and are so excited to see them!
