Lauren and Katie have been together for years, and even from talking with them in the year leading up to their wedding, I could tell how well they balance each other out. Katie grew up in Mystic and loves the water, so it made sense for them to have a Connecticut wedding (even though they live in Massachusetts).
Lauren and Katie’s Mystic Seaport wedding in Connecticut was at the Mystic Boatshed at Lighthouse Point, a really cool wooden pavilion right by the water. It’s right in the middle of the Historic Mystic area, so it’s surrounded by ships and docks. It’s very peaceful, especially since their wedding day was overcast and rainy. We were actually all surprised by the rain, since (for once this summer) it wasn’t in the forecast. We had umbrellas though, and the rain stopped right before we got on the boat for their ceremony entrance. The rest of the night was spent hanging out and dancing outside. I think they definitely achieved the relaxed, fun feeling they were hoping for.
