Logan & Josh | A Castle Mountain Engagement

May 7, 2023

Referrals always drive small business! My oldest friend asked if I was available to speak to her recently engaged cousin, looking at venues and my experiences at them I gave my opinion no hold barred. When they decided on said venue 10 from my home I was just waiting for that consultation call, which definitely went well! Joshua and Logan are those modern day love stories meeting online on "the app meant to be deleted" Hinge. It was the first match and last and I find that very special to go on that last first date.

It has been at least 15 years last time I saw Joshua and he is now a very accomplished businessman and very happy he has found a partner in Logan. She is fun, bubbly and relaxed - the perfect #mopbride! We met at Castle Craig in Hubbard Park in Meriden, Connecticut since they lived in nearby Southington and had the most amazing weather and drive up. It was full of hikers enjoying the early spring morning. We chatted all about their plans for the big day and went to a few locations on the mountain, ending in God's Chair which you can view so far out to New Haven and the Sound.

Driving home, Logan texted me a photo of her wedding dress and no spoilers, it is amazing and made me even more excited to see them again!

All smiles,


I mean! Wowza -this diamond is stunning!
