Christopher and Elizabeth sailed into each other’s lives many years ago. Their parents, both longtime members of Riverside Yacht Club, were “neighbors” in the marina, and the families grew up sailing together every summer. Life, however, took them in different directions during high school and college. But one fateful evening, they crossed paths at Barcelona restaurant and became reacquainted. A childhood friendship soon blossomed into romance. The couple dated for two and a half years before getting engaged on a snowy February evening in Binney Park.
Reverend Richard Bond officiated at the ceremony at Riverside Yacht Club, where the reception followed.
The bride, daughter of Allen and Lorain Lovejoy of Old Greenwich, graduated from Greenwich High School and the University of Louisville. Elizabeth works for CRT Capital Group in Manhattan.
The groom, son of Stephen and Michele Kinner of Greenwich, graduated from Green Mountain Valley School and Harvard University. Christopher works for Cycling Sports Group in Wilton.
The newlyweds honeymooned in Kauai and Maui. They live in Greenwich.
