Katie and Tim are such a laid-back, sweet, and genuine couple. It feels like yesterday that I received an inquiry from Katie asking me to be a part of their upcoming wedding day!

These two met back in 2012 and had their first date at a Japanese restaurant in Providence, Rhode Island, and have been together ever since! At the time, Tim was in his second year at Brown University and Katie was working at Rhode Island Hospital in asthma research. Four years later, Tim proposed to Katie on a break from school to celebrate Katie’s sister’s wedding in Maine. They decided to take their own trip after the wedding to a small town called Kingfield, Maine and stayed at a cute bed and breakfast. Since the two had been so busy with school, Katie was really un-suspecting of the proposal! I’ll let them tell the story from here:

“ We knew we wanted to go hiking, so we decided on Little Bigelow as our first adventure. Once we made it to the top, Katie was taking pictures of the views and taking in its beauty when she turned around to see Tim down on one knee with a ring. She was very surprised! She immediately said yes and could not stop smiling and they took a picture at the top of the mountain to commemorate the moment.”

Since Katie and Tim got engaged on top of Little Bigelow, it was only fitting that they also get married in the mountains! Katie and Tim are getting married at Roan Mountain State Park, but wanted to explore the park on their wedding day, so we decided to do their engagement up on the epic balds. We met up on a somewhat cold and blustery day in the Spring and had a blast talking about the different kinds of trees and plant life on the balds! I loved exploring with these two and cannot wait for their wedding day!
