Married: Katie & Colin in Stonington, CT

"You doin ok? Can I get you anything?"

I looked up from my camera to find Katie standing beside me, her kind eyes smiling. And I just smiled and shook my head. From anyone else, this might have come as a surprising question from a bride on her wedding day....

...but that's just Katie.

Through the course of the day I heard her ask this question of no less than twenty other people surrounding her- the proof and possession of a true giver's heart. And one by one they would each just smile and shake their heads, too overcome by the generosity and thoughtfulness that one single person could possess. She is elegance and grace and goodness defined. A timeless iconic beauty- think Hepburn meets Holmes- mixed with just enough witty banter to make everyone around her just want to be her friend. Because you can just tell that she's the kind of friend who loves with her whole heart and hugs like she means it.

But that's just Katie.

And Katie would not be complete without her Colin. Because while Katie gives to take care of everyone else, Colin is the one who takes care of her. And you only have to see him look at her once to know that he always will.

Married: Katie & Colin







This rosary belonged to Katie's grandmother who wore it on her wedding day, before giving it to Katie's mom to wear on her wedding day. Katie had the amazing Yumiko of Hana Floral Design wrap it around her bouquet so she could continue the tradition.


This was the crazy fog rolling in off the water.

Katie's exquisite Vera Wang gown:

Katie and her beautiful mom, Brenda (who we just LOVE!!)



The handsome Colin:

The rain held off for most of the day until we got through the ceremony, but just as we started setting up this group shot the skies opened and the rain came down. But these guys were such troopers so we just rolled with it.


Absolutely stunning!

Katie & Colin had this car to carry the bridal party, but we had to grab a shot of it because this is the very same car that Justin & I had for our wedding!!

First Dip:

It was such an emotional day from the beginning to the end. I'm not 100% sure when exactly I cried for the first time (because there were just SO many times that day), but I'm willing to bet that THIS had something to do with it: Katie with her dad Bernie

We just want to give a HUGE thanks to the entire staff of the Inn at Mystic and the one and only Traci Romano for putting on such an amazing wedding for Katie & Colin. These guys are the best of the best and we were just so honored to be working alongside them.

Katie, Colin, Brenda & Bernie: you guys treated us like family from minute one, and from here on out that's exactly what you'll always be to us. We cannot thank you enough for everything. We love you guys!!

Nice! I love the umbrellas! Sometimes I wish it would rain out here in San Diego just so we can get these kind of awesomeness/images. But only sometimes. :)
