I had the privelege this past weekend of capturing the marriage of Katelyn and Rich. I have known Katelyn since she was a little girl - so when they asked me if I could do their wedding, I was thrilled! Katelyn's mom is a good friend of mine - and is even a teacher at our christian school. Here are just a FEW of the many beautiful moments...
The bride looked absolutely stunning and I loved her subtle Christmas themed December color combinations.
The excitement of the getting ready .......
Both of the sisters....
We were able to do quite a bit of the formal family shots before the wedding with the groom tucked safely away out of sight. I love these pictures of the bride in the sunlight - she was so sweetly walking her grandfather back into the building.
The ceremony was a small intimate gathering of mostly just family members. It was a tender and touching ceremony.
Immediately after the ceremony we were able to capture some great shots of the bride and groom in the very last of the fading sunset light - the light was PERFECT!
This is one of my favorite images of the evening, there were huge flocks of birds flying overhead while we were shooting - and you can even see the moon in the one below!
The very intimate gathering of the bridal party - all siblings or cousins.
The entire family - and also just about the entire guest list!
I kept stealing quick shots of these two when they thought I wasn't around - - they are SO IN LOVE with each other, and it just showed in every picture that I took. I absolutely loved watching Rich gazing so lovingly at his bride every chance he could.
The first dance.....
and the lovely cake..
......and a quick moment to relax before the grand finale!!
Congratulations to Rich and Katelyn - best wishes for many decades of happiness!!
