Elizabeth and Max got married in Rockland this past weekend and the vision that we chatted so much about before this day finally came to life! As a couple, Mr. + Dr. Mrs. Skor’s success extends to various facets of their lives including their careers, the palpable love from their family and friends, and their 21-year-long relationship. One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is getting to know my couples even more through stories from those who love them the most. As parents gush over memories from their childhoods while everyone is getting ready, to hearing embarrassing moments from college from friends at cocktail hour, into the evening as toasts and “remember when’s” are floating through the reception, I simply cannot get enough. It is clear from my experience with Max and Elizabeth and all the amazing things spoken about them on their wedding day that the term power couple really captures them perfectly.
Power couple: “a couple consisting of two people who are each influential or successful in their own right.”
