Haydn and I knew each other in high school and eventually connected again during college. To most, we were an unexpected pairing - Haydn being in a heavy metal band and myself being a baker. We bonded over our love for our Labrador, Mia and eventually got another lab, Max.

We had just celebrated 6 years of being together. Haydn proposed to me while out on the boat on Lake George. We had gotten off the boat to walk around “Long Island” and Haydn got down on one knee with the view of the mountains and the lake behind him. It was picture perfect!

We chose to get married at the Queensbury Hotel for so many reasons. I loved the historical aspect and its classic atmosphere. Haydn's family runs a local flooring company, and they rehabbed the original floors and installed new floors throughout the hotel through the years. It felt special to have had my soon-to-be family play an important role during the beautiful renovations at the hotel. Our winter wedding could not have been more perfect!
