Wall, NJ Backyard Wedding
After the year we had last year, not wanting to wait any longer to get married and dealing with restrictions, why not have a back yard wedding! Chris and Kate had the most perfect backyard wedding at their home in Wall, NJ. They had every detail thought out including a s’mores area, bbq food, a cotton candy and popcorn station and beautiful succulent gifts for their guests. You can check out the photos below to see their beautiful NJ backyard wedding. Now let’s dive into a little more about our couple.
How they met…
Chris & Kate first met at Bar A in Belmar, NJ at Wednesday Country Night. They knew each other from passing and one day the stars just aligned and they started talking. Their first date was at Langosta Lounge in Asbury Park. Chris picked Kate up and they were originally suppose to go to another restaurant that was closed so they went to Langosta. It turned out perfect as there was a live band playing called “Remember Jones” (One of their favorites to this day). Funny story is that it was so loud in the restaurant that Kate asked Chris what his last name was (his facebook name doesn’t have it) and he told her but she couldn’t hear him, so she asked again and he told her. She still couldn’t understand what it was but she didn’t want to sound like an idiot so she nodded and pretended she heard him. It took a month or so for her to lean over and read his credit card to find out what her new last name would be 😉
November 28 2016 was their first date, and they were pretty inseparable after that, they just clicked. Kate went away to Cabo with some family in February and came home and never left his house hahaha. One day Chris asked “Do we live together now?” haha I said “I think so” lol
What do they like to do…
Chris and Kate love to travel together, one their favorite trips together was a 10 day trip to Brazil where they got to go to a Cold Play Concert! Concerts, anything outdoors with their Puppy Ryleigh and hanging with Friends & Family is high on the list.
How did he propose…
November 4, 2018 Chris Proposed to Kate at Mile 17 at the NYC Marathon that he was running in. It was the most special thought out day. He had a photographer on site and the police had the area clear around me. He wore a Marry Me Kate shirt while he was running (which he regretted bc the whole time people asked him if I said yes before the fact lol) The rest is yet to come and I wish both Chris and Kate a wonderful blessed marriage!
