Columbia University’s graduate business school is where Emily Curry and Christopher Schlosser met. They were assigned to the same first-semester class in the fall of 2006, and a friendship quickly developed. Chris knew that lobster was one of Emily’s favorite foods, so in December he invited her to his apartment for an authentic New England summer meal. His culinary skills must have been impressive, because Chris eventually won Emily’s heart. Two years later he surprised her with a weekend getaway to one of her favorite places, Martha’s Vineyard, to celebrate her birthday. On a morning stroll around Edgartown Harbor, Chris found a quiet spot and proposed to Emily.
After finishing graduate school, the couple married at the Talmadge Hill Community Church in Darien. The Reverend Judith Joyce officiated the ceremony and a reception followed at Woodway Country Club. The bride wore an heirloom veil of Belgian lace that was made for her great-great-grandmother in 1887 and was also worn by Emily’s maternal grandmother and her mother.
The bride, daughter of Helen and Robert Curry of New Canaan, graduated cum laude from Bucknell University with a BA in math and economics. She earned her MBA at Columbia University. Emily is now a management consultant with A.T. Kearney in New York City.
The groom, son of Susan and Joseph Schlosser of Chappaqua, New York, graduated from Colby College with a BA in economics and from Columbia University with an MBA. He is director of digital strategy for Major League Soccer in Manhattan.
The couple, who spent their honeymoon in Tanzania and Zanzibar, now live in New York City.
