Beautiful Burlap and Beams Wedding with Kate & Chris

Kate and Chris have an incredible story that I’m so excited to share with you. We were lucky enough to watch it unfold and come together in such beautiful way on their wedding day! They were introduced by Chris’ co-worker and Kate’s neighbor, Janet and her husband Doug. Janet thought they’d be a great match and asked each of the separately if they’d like to meet and as luck would have it, they both, a bit nervously, agreed (thank goodness!). A blind date followed and Kate waited in front of Ben & Jerry’s in Saratoga and waited for a guy named Chris to show up and the rest is history! Chris was initially a bit wary when Kate ordered a salad for dinner, but was quickly sold when she ordered a good beer and was seemingly more interested in the Yankee game on the TV behind him than their date (hey, it was a playoff game, you can’t blame her!). The date was obviously a success and they’ve spent the past 3.5 years going on many adventures together, the biggest of which was adopting their pup Callie. She’s taught them so much about teamwork and becoming a family even before the “big question” even came up, which happened on another adventure of theirs. They’d been planning to start hiking the ADK 46er’s together and after a busy summer, decided they could get one in before fall, and they decided on Cascade Mountain. On top of that very mountain, their first peak together, that is where Chris proposed. Kate was shocked after months of ‘this could be it’ moments, that the real “this is it!” moment had finally arrived! Wedding planning ensued and they created a gorgeous day that began with getting ready at the Merrill Magee Inn, doing a first look with both Kate’s Dad and Chris, the super sweet pup Callie making a debut, and an awesome evening at Burlap and Beams for their ceremony, which included a wine box with letters to each other that they’ll open as they drink that bottle of wine on their first anniversary, and a fun reception complete with a quick thunder storm and beautiful sunset – it was an awesome celebration of a phenomenal couple!
