Sean & Andi | A Squam Lake Celebration

The Squam Lake & Chocorua Preserve wedding celebration of Sean & Andi

How did you two meet?
There is some debate as to how/when we actually met, but all that really matters is that we became fast friends during freshman year at UChicago. After graduation, we found ourselves on opposite ends of the globe (Sean in Dubai, Andi in D.C.) – communicating exclusively through sporadic email. So we did what any rational set of people would do in such a situation: we compromised and met each other halfway (literally). Our first date was a five-day trip exploring the fjords of Norway. The rest is history! After five years, twelve countries, and one new addition (Kira!), we finally decided to make it official and embark on our newest adventure together!

^ sean copied that from our website, but its not wrong ☺ we met in college & were really close friends, but didn’t start dating til a couple years after. One year of crazy long distance, and we both found gigs in NYC, moved here, and the rest is history!

Why did you choose to get married at the location that you did?
Andi spent summers on Squam Lake since she was a child, and was actually baptized at Church Island (where we held the ceremony). Campbell Lovett (one of our officiants) did the baptism 25 years ago, and Cindy Dopp (the other officiant) is Andi’s godmother. 

Now that the wedding is over, what are you going to do with all of your free time?!
Sean: Spending more time with our dog (and together)! Writing thank-you notes, and learning to say the words ‘wife’ and ‘husband’ without giggling. 
Andi: getting back into fostering dogs (we’ve only fostered like 3 since we got engaged), helping friends plan their weddings because everyone keeps asking, finally going back to the gym, etc. No real life changes, other than going back to real life ☺. Hopefully planning some vacations that aren’t centered around the wedding.

Cait & JO | A Willowdale Estate Wedding Celebration

The Willowdale Estate celebration of Cait & JO

How did you two meet?
We met at work in NYC. I wish it was more exciting than that ☺

Why did you choose to get married at the location that you did?
I walked in to that location with my mom and we just knew. We’d looked at countless venues, and the second I walked out the back doors of Willowdale, I could see us with our friends and fam there.

Were there any happy surprises that happened at the wedding?
THE BAND – we knew they were good, but I don’t think anyone left the dance floor, it was so much fun

What moment sticks out to you above all of the others from the wedding?
Walking out to our reception, we underestimated how amazing it would be to see all the most important people in our life together. I still cry thinking about it. When else in our life would we ever get a moment like that, and to sit down and share a meal together. It was everything to us. We put a note to all the guests on the tables and I picked the quote “the sun looks down on nothing half so good as a household sharing a meal together” and it could not have been more fitting.

Now that the wedding is over, what are you going to do with all of your free time?!
Oh you know, just live the dream 😉 But really, just enjoy our life together with fam and friends…and travel! And not be on a diet 😉
Our wedding day made us feel like the luckiest people in the entire world to have that type of support and love and 6 months later that holds true.
