Lauren & John - Our Story

Written by

John and I first met playing recreational indoor soccer in 2009. When we ended up on the same team, we spent more time together each week after the games ended. He told me he loved me after three weeks and said he would marry me someday. I didn't believe him.

Our Story

Nick and I went on our first date on October 4th, 2011 in New York City, but we quickly realized we had been leading parallel lives for years prior. We hung out at all the same places and can both recall being in the same place for a specific event or happening - multiple times. However, it took us meeting online to actually go out on a date. We hit it off right away and neither of us went back online after our first date.

Barn Wedding in the Adirondacks

Written by
Our Story - Rebecca & Scott Brown 
 
After a friendly conversation over a few bottles of Maple 
porters at a birthday party in January of 2015, there was an instant connection between us. A few gatherings later, and three more attempts to go out on a date (Thank God for persistent men), we had our first date at Morgan and Co. in downtown Glens Falls. 
 
We were scheduled for a trip to Italy /Portugal in April of 2017. We visited my family in Marsicovetere, Italy. Scott made several attempts to have some alone time with me (planning to propose), but there is never a quiet moment when socializing with Italians. Finally, as we were leaving Marsicovetere, he popped the question in the backseat of the car. In shock, I didn’t even answer. Immediately after, my cousin pulled the car over (unaware of what just occurred), we jumped out of the car, and wandered over to a nearby garden, in which a small church covered in vines appeared. Finally, alone, Scott knelt on the steps of the church and proposed the way he had planned to for so long. Spoiler alert, I said, “Yes.” 
 
We had more fun planning and preparing for the big day than we did stressing about it. Our wedding was on a crisp October day. It was gorgeous, there was a double rainbow and we were surrounded by our closest family and friends at the most beautiful venue. Everyone worked so hard to make our day special, and we are so grateful for the love and time spent on us.
