Sarah Hunter Forcheski, the daughter of Joan and Carl Forcheski, of Ridgefield, married Michael James Misencik, the son of Barbara and James Misencik, of Trumbull, on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020, a perfectly clear and sun-splashed autumn day.

They were introduced at Okemo Mountain by Ridgefield High School ski team coach Dave Kiley and got engaged while on a trip to Iceland.

In true 2020 fashion, the ceremony was conducted outside on the front steps of Jesse Lee Memorial United Methodist Church, with a backdrop of trees in peak color. Officiated by Pastor Rev. Dr. William B. Pfohl, the bride and groom were attended to by matron of honor and Katharine Venuti and best man Ross Venuti of Reading, Mass.

The bride — a 2009 RHS graduate and a 2013 cum laude graduate of the University of Connecticut School of Business — sparkled in an Amsale wedding gown. She works as a marketing operations manager at Hiscox Inc., a specialty insurance carrier.

The groom is a 2001 graduate of Trumbull High School and 2005 cum laude graduate of Colby College in Waterville, Maine. He earned a master’s degree in biology from Southern Connecticut State University in 2014 and is a biologist at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station.

A celebratory dinner for immediate family was held in New Canaan at the Roger Sherman Inn. The newlyweds traveled to Mount Desert Island, Maine for a brief honeymoon, and plan on taking a larger trip when things return to normal. They recently purchased a home and reside in Weston, Conn.
