Kate and Ian

Tyrone Farms Pomfret, Connecticut

We first met Kate and Ian at a very busy bridal show so very long ago. Tim actually talked to them. I was in a flood of couples or getting coffee. You really never know with me. Then we went out for coffee with Kate and Ian. It was like hanging out with old friends. Their fun and outgoing energy pulled us in. They’re like Ryan Reynolds (okay, Ian even has his hair and glasses…) and Blake Lively. They’re so much fun!!!!!!!

I had a BLAST with them at Enders Falls. I could have hung out with them all day but they wanted to get Indian food and I probably had another session to get to. Regardless, it was a dreamy day full of laughs. They were game for anything which is always the absolute best!

Fast forward to their wedding day. If you want the ultimate, perfect, legendary, dream, fairytale autumn wedding…go to Kate and Ian. Good grief! I didn’t even want to do any preview photos in black and white because the colors were INSANE! Just gorgeous!!! Every detail…pumpkin place settings; hot apple cider for guests when they arrived; the most picturesque backdrop on planet autumn earth; espresso martinis; stunning bouquets and centerpieces that were the true essence of fall; a macaron tower the shades of October; warm pies for dessert…I mean I know I’m forgetting stuff. But as Stefan from SNL would say, this wedding had EVERYTHING. It even had a cat! *fist pump*

We LOVED working with Kate, Ian, their family and friends. What a fun bunch!!!! I mean I really have so many words I can say about these two soulmates but FUN, adventurous and just down-to-earth is prevalent above the rest. They have so much silliness and affection in their relationship - which is so important. We just adore them! Not to mention they’re stupid good looking

We love you guys so much and we’re just honored to have captured your incredibly gorgeous day!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

All our love,


Rayleen and Tim
