Robyn + Steve @ Candlewood Lake Inn

Candlewood Lake wedding | CT wedding photography

Robyn contacted me from the UK in planning her CT wedding, so she did everything long-distance!! Many guests traveled quite far to be at their beautiful event in Brookfield CT at the Candlewood Inn

Since she doesn’t live here in the US, we met up one day at the Inn while she was tree for a tasting. Her husband (Fiancee at the time!) could not be there, so she invited me along  to join her on her tasting–THAT was a first! What made it extra interesting is that since she is on a strict gluten-free diet, the entire menu had to fit that criteria, so it as neat to see how they ‘replace’ items with gluten-free options!

JC was with the guys at the Ethan Allen Inn, which I hung out with the gals at the Lake

One of my personal favorites–I love the simplicity of the dress here—and Robyn looks fantastic!
