After meeting through mutual friends at SUNY Fredonia, Taylor and Jake chatted on trusty 'ol AIM β€” then had their first date at Ellicottville Brewing Company. The rest is history. (10 years of it, in fact!) The couple lived in Syracuse, Chicago, and the DMV area, then made the move back to Buffalo where they now live downtown on the medical campus with their two cats, Zak and Gaga.

β€œIn June of 2017 at our favorite vacation home in Seattle, Jake popped the question on the front deck, which he had decorated with lush flowers and sparkling champagne, overlooking the skyline. Of course the answer was "YES!" and the wedding planning began,” says Taylor.

Taylor and Jacob tied the knot on April 27, 2018 at Hotel Henry in the Elmwood Village. "Planning our wedding with our incredible local vendors was an experience we'll never forget. We couldn't have done it without the help of our amazing families and for that we are eternally grateful!"
