Katie & Ryan | The Ultimate Adventure in the White Mountains

By | Videos, Weddings | One Comment

I first met Katie & Ryan while filming Katie’s sister’s wedding (Remember this magical winter celebration?) in January of 2016. The biggest compliment that I can ever receive is to have the honor of working with the same family multiple times. When Katie contacted me about her upcoming mountaintop celebration, I had to make it happen!
It has been an absolute delight to get to witness not just one milestone for this family, but two. I couldn’t be happier to see the incredibly strong and loving family that Katie has joined. Their love for one another and for their families is the stuff that fairytales are written about.

Congratulations Ryan & Katie, enjoy this next crazy adventure!
