After meeting on the first day of Staff Training at the YMCA Camp Hi-Rock, Ian Sawyer and Kate Levy spent the summer in the Berkshires completely in love. The only issue was that their relationship would be stretched over an international distance once the summer was over. After an initial proposal in Cape Cod, the two agreed to not speak again unless they had decided to get married officially. Kate and Ian barely spoke for years, and in 2009 the two reconnected and Kate said yes when Ian asked if speaking meant she was ready to get married.
The couple said their vows at the Burr Homestead in Fairfield and the reception was held at the same venue. Reverend Annie Stebbins officiated at the ceremony. The bride is the daughter of Sarah and Steven Levy of Fairfield. Kate attended Fairfield High School and received her bachelor’s degree in exercise physiology and mathematics from the University of Miami. She is currently working as an Account Executive at Manulife Financial in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in Canada.
Ian is the son of Joan and Eric Sawyer of Winnipeg, Manitoba. He attended Silver Heights High School in Winnipeg and attended the University of Winnipeg to complete his bachelor’s degree. He is currently working as an Account Representative at United Rentals in Winnipeg. Currently residing in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the couple plans on taking a snowboarding honeymoon in 2012.
