Photos: Harkness Park and Enders Island
Reception: At Home in the Backyard!

Elaine and Ryan were officially our most laid back couple to date. We started with photos at Harkness park in Waterford, CT. Ryan and Elaine drove together, just the two of them, to meet us. From there they took us on a mini CT shoreline tour. Photos at Harkness are always beautiful. It is a great backdrop for the couple’s photos and family photos. It is a location with a little bit of everything, some greenery and a little sand between the toes. From there we all piled in our cars and headed to Montville for their ceremony. Once these two were married, their bridal party (and the newest family member, their puppy) joined us at Enders Island for some photos oceanside. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the location, it is the very tip of Mason’s Island in Mystic, CT where the monastery resides. From there we headed just a few blocks to Elaine and Ryan’s home. It is here where they held their reception.

This wedding was small, quaint, and personal. Ryan spent a long time preparing the home and yard for the big event. He did an incredible job. The house was adorable and cozy, and the yard looked great! It was the perfect size for the tented reception. All the guests were treated to a beautiful wedding with the help of A Thyme To Cook catering. The food and presentation was fantastic as usual. Elaine and Ryan were able to feel relaxed and at ease knowing they were at home and mingling with close family and friends. They worked hard for a stress free and fun wedding day, which I think they completely accomplished. Our favorite part of a reception at home was capturing a photo of the groom carrying his bride across the threshold. It is our new favorite wedding photo. It was so nice to be a part of such a beautiful and personal occasion. We thank you both for including us in your day.
