Wedding Spotlight: Cathy & Chris

Today we shine our wedding spotlight on our very own power couple, Cathy & Chris Pomponio.

Chris is our CEO and founder of Planestry, and his wife Cathy is one of the helping hands behind the scenes.  Not only was their wedding absolutely breathtaking, but the stress and pain points they experienced during the planning process helped inspire Chris to build


Cathy met Chris while he was bartending at Minnesota’s in Long Beach NY.   They hit it off right away, bonding over their mutual love of music.  Chris was lead singer and vocalist of Deciding Tonight, a popular local rock band.  Who wouldn’t want to date a rockstar?  =)

When it came time for wedding planning, staying on budget was no easy task.  Cathy and Chris worked together to be strategic as to where they spent their money.

“We used post it notes and spreadsheets to piece together our wedding planning.  We were able to afford a high end photographer and wedding band by prioritizing those as the two most important vendors for us then offset that by not hiring a videographer and doing a lot of DIY decorations. ie: place cards, card box, table numbers, etc.”

Cathy and Chris decided on Land’s End of Sayville as a venue.  They chose to be married on September 28th, hoping for weather that was not too hot, but not too cold.  Cathy’s favorite moment of their big day was her first dance with Chris to ‘Hold My Hand’ by Hootie and the Blowfish.  The song was performed live by their amazing wedding band Phase One of Craig Scott Entertainment.

Matthew Sowa Photography did an amazing job of bringing our vision to life.  Our pictures are a mixture of vintage and photo journalistic, which matches our personal styles very well.”
