Todd & Kristie | The Farmhouse Wilmington Delaware Wedding
We got to kick off our Mountain Gap Wedding season this past Saturday with Todd & Kristie at The Farmhouse Wilmington Delaware and let me just say…it was the perfect kickoff to our season! Todd & Kristie are as sweet as they come, and so much fun. They instantly made us feel like we had known them for forever, were totally up for any idea we had, and danced like there was no tomorrow. We had a blast celebrating with these two, their friends and family, and their sweet little pup, Luna!
We asked Kristie and Todd a few questions before their wedding about their love story. This adventurous couple (they’re headed to Japan in just a few months!) of course had the cutest engagement story:
Snowboarding has always been a passion for us both. Aside from the initial group trip we took together, we’ve taken many more trips in the years that followed.
One trip in particular was for New Year’s Eve 2011-2012. We took a road trip to Vermont with 2 other friends and stayed in Burlington VT to have access to multiple ski resorts and also be in a downtown area for the NYE festivities. When we boarded at Jay’s Peak, it was extremely cold and there were many signs advising to be on the lookout for frostbite. Towards the late afternoon one of the ski hut attendants banged on the Plexiglas and pointed at us. Todd checked to make sure all his skin was covered and gave the attendant a thumbs up to indicate we were okay. The attendant banged and pointed again, at which point Todd looked at Kristie and noticed her nose was as white as the snow. Kristie being stubborn (as usual) still wanted to board down the mountain and then go into the lodge. Todd and our two other friends finally convinced her to go inside the hilltop lodge inside until her nose returned to a normal skin color.
Fast forward to February 2016, Todd asked Kristie on that Thursday if she wanted to take an impromptu trip to a local mountain to get some snowboarding time in. Towards the end of the day, Kristie was ready to pack it in and Todd convinced her to take one more run, as the sun was setting and he thought the views would be best. As we approached the top of the lift, the hut attendant banged on the Plexiglas and held up a “Marry Me?” sign and when Kristie turned to Todd he was holding the ring.
Adorable, right? Their spirit of adventure was evident throughout their wedding day, as was their love for one another! But wait…it gets better! When we asked Todd what he loved about his new wife, he said:
Her beautiful smile, her patience, her playfulness, her understanding, the way she makes me feel at home, the life in her eyes.
And when we asked Kristie what she loves about Todd, she told us:
His pursuit of becoming the best version of himself, his hospitality and openness to new people and experiences, his different facets, particularly his goofy side, and his calm approaching to challenging situations, always focused on finding a solution instead of stressing over the difficult hurdles.
So, basically, we give you…the cutest couple ever and the beautiful The Farmhouse in Wilmington, Delaware!
