She’s Everything To Me  | The Sinclair of Skaneateles | Skaneateles New York Wedding Film

What is your story?

Over the last four and a half years Chris and I have built an amazing life together. We are older so we approched our relationship and commitments differently than most younger couples would. We are both well established in our careers and by the time we found eachother, we had both already completed most major life events.  This is what made things very simple, we are together beacuse we want to be, not out of obligation or need. We actually like each other and want to complete the second part of our lives together.

How did the two of you meet?

We met at a coffee shop in Syracuse. We were standing in a long line together when Chris made a funny comment about the time it was taking for the line move. I laughed and gave him my own quick witted response.  We ended up sitting next to eachother and chatting for a bit.  We’ve been best friends since.  

What was your favorite memory of your wedding day?

I loved doing our fog send off photo/video shoot.  It was really fun to do that with our friends and family. They made it memorable. 

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

Keeping it formal so everyone could get dressed up was a big deal.  All my girlfriends and my sisters love buying and wearing fancy dresses, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to throw a fancy party. I love seeing people all decked out.
The venue speaks for itself, classy with some rustic/industrial vibes. Stunning grounds with beautiul backdrops. The first time I visted The Sinclair, I knew this was where I would get married. 

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

Looking back, our advice would be to do your first look at least 3 hours before your ceremony. We would also suggest holding your ceremony early so you have enough evening time left to enjoy your guests. We held out for a 4:30p ceremony and we both felt we didn’t have enough time with our guests.

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

We wanted to be able to relive our day, not just in still images.  Just do it!

Anything else you would like to share?

Gavin is an absolute pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend him enough. I wish I actually had more time with him at our wedding.
