The Brides Married Between Flower-Covered Chimneys in the Rugged Beauty of the Adirondacks

“We met in the ‘gayest’ way,” says Olivia Zetter of how she first crossed paths with her now-spouse, brand strategist Alexandra Allukian. “We were at Boston Pride in 2015. We first met that Friday evening, but never ended up exchanging numbers.” Fortunately, she and Alexandra ran into each other at another pride event the following day and ended up walking around the city until 4:00 a.m.

“I saw her coming up the stairs, and I had to say something,” Alexandra says. “I had never seen anyone like her.” After missing the moment as Olivia passed by, Alexandra plucked up the courage to introduce herself. “I yelled after her, ‘I like your hair!’” she remembers, laughing. “When we finally started talking, we realized that we had so many things in common, from places we’d lived and traveled around the world, to our shared values, to realizing that Olivia’s grandfather went to the same high school as me and my five siblings.”

Their first date was a few days later in the Boston Public Garden. They met at the gazebo, and the first thing Alexandra did was jokingly propose, before leading Olivia on a scavenger hunt for roses around the garden. “I thought she was insane,” Olivia admits. “But by that point, I already knew that this was most likely going to last. The only challenge was that I had just finished grad school and I was imminently moving to D.C.”

Alexandra was still living in Boston at the time, and the two embarked on a relationship despite the miles between them. “Quite a few years of long-distance followed, but regardless of where we were in the world, laughing always came easier and the hard things in life were just a little bit easier too,” Alexandra says.

They were engaged in August of 2021 and designed their engagement rings together with Lindsay Olson of Adeline Jewelry. “Alexandra’s ring was ready first, but we kept it a secret,” Olivia says. “I was able to surprise her by recreating our first date in the Boston Public Garden, this time with a real proposal. Alexandra returned the question in Paris shortly after, surprising me this time.”

In recent years, the couple has spent quite a bit of time in the Adirondacks. With that in mind, they chose the ruggedly beautiful place that they’ve come to love as the location for their wedding. They were married on July 9, 2022 at the Partridge Park Lodge near Saranac, New York, and their goal was to create a wedding weekend that was beautiful but also relaxed and filled with love.
