Historical Mystic CT

Mystic CT is a village comprised of two towns, Groton and Stonington, that share the same zip code but is separated by a drawbridge, known as the Mystic River Bascule Bridge, along the Mystic River. The first settlers settled here in 1654. Although the Stonington side was originally called “Southerton” which was named by the Peqout Indians and translated to the town east of the river. In 1665 General Session voted to change the name “Southerton” to Mistick which is known as Olde Mystick today.

The War of 1812 was had on these lands. Afterwards the area continued to grow prompting the installation of the first bridge in 1819. The drawbridge was built in 1835. In 1890 the village of Mystic became known as Old Mystic.  At this time, without actually merging, they gave up their independent names and became known as Mystic.

These changes were at by the requests of the US Post Office system, which has ever since considered the villages on the two sides of the river, belonging to two different townships, as a single entity for Post Office purposes with the ZIP code 06355. For more information about the village of Mystic CT and its history, visit the Mystic River Historical Society.

It was wonderful getting off my phone this weekend and spending time with some truly amazing humans in such a magical setting. We laughed, cried, ate lobster, drank champagne, but above all of that we spent the last four days celebrating our dear friends James and Lauren 👰🏼🤵🏼. These two people were made for each other. They support one another in all aspects of life. They are calming in a world of busy. When I think of people I admire, its them. I’m so excited to see where this new adventure of marriage takes them. ...

POSED or CANDID?

I’m a much bigger fan of authentic moments. It’s always my goal to capture the relationship through emotions. Do we shoot posed photos as well? Of course! That’s what Mom, Dad, and your Grandparents want to see! What do you prefer?
