Obvious From The Moment We Met | Great Pines Resort | Old Forge New York Wedding Film | Christy + Ryan

What is your story?

We met 9 years ago at the Stoneyard Brewery in Brockport, New York where Christy worked and Ryan frequented. It wasn’t long until after shift drinks turned into first dates, first apartments, multiple cities, and a couple fur babies. Having lived in Boston the last four years, we are excited to have finally married in our beloved Adirondacks surrounded by our closest friends and family.

What was your favorite memory of your wedding day?

Our favorite memory of our wedding day was the moments we shared during our first dance and also during our ceremony vows. We both felt this tunnel vision to each other. Simply connected, in the moment, full of bliss. 

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

The Adirondacks share a special place in our lives. Christys family has vacationed here for generations and Ryan has special memories here as well. The venue was special to us for the ability to have our family and friends stay the weekend and share our love of the Adirondacks as well. 

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

Keep the traditions that are special to you and your family and leave what doesn’t serve you. Fight for what you want without getting lost in the details. Stay true to yourselves and leave plenty of time for dancing! 

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

We knew the day could go fast and that we would see every special moment. Videography captures a unique perspective that photos alone may not. A living time capsule. 

Anything else you would like to share?

We can’t wait to witness our wedding all over again and all the moments we may have missed! Thank you Gavin!!
