Kathleen + Killian – perfect in every way! They are both incredibly sweet and care so deeply for one another. It was an absolute please to spend the day capturing them with their friends and family at the beautiful Hamlet in Commack. Did we not mention the most amazing wedding coordinator, Leanne Ross and how she made Mr. Softee Truck happen at the end of the night <3
In Kathleen + Killian’s words:
How did you meet?
We met on an online dating app. We started talking on New Years Day 2015 and less than a week later we were meeting for the first time.
What was your first date like:
Our first date was a little tough to get started but ended up being amazing. It ended up being the coolest day of the year. Kathleen took a little extra convincing to brave the subway from Brooklyn into the city which she never used . The extreme cold helped steer her into the wrong restaurant where she first thought she was getting “catfished”. She eventually made it next door where we had an amazing time getting to know each other.
Tell us about how he proposed:
We got engaged quietly in the backyard of our apartment. I made plans to take her out to her favorite park on the North Sore and then plans started to fall apart so I pitched cooking a really nice dinner and eating in the yard and the hardest part was convincing her to wash her hands clean of crab meat so the ring wouldn’t get dirty.
What makes your love special?
Our love is unique because we are opposites in so many ways and at the same time the same as each other. Kathleen always talks about how much she admires my patience I love her constant energy. But at the same time our favorite thing to do together is sitting down on Sunday night to watch America’s Funniest Videos and decompress before another crazy week.
Advice to new couples:
My biggest advice would be during the wedding planning, make sure you always remember in the end it’s all about the couple. Trying to appease everyone else and make everyone happy will be the majority of your stresses.
