what can i say about katie and justin? these two were made for each other! they met in the fourth grade when they were NINE and started dating in high school. family and friends have supported their 7-year relationship and were so excited for them to marry. this past saturday, katie and justin tied the knot in front of their loved ones! it was full house in the ceremony and the reception was hoppin’ until their sparkler exit.
i am so thankful i got to be a part of their special day. i truly love what i do and i’m so blessed to share in such important life moments. katie and justin’s day was nothing less than spectacular. we started with a first look, threw in some mistletoe throughout the day, and ended the evening with them being carried away on horse-drawn carriage. their wedding was the perfect end to a wonderful 2013 wedding season.
i had a LOT of favorites from their day, so hopefully my blog won’t explode with all of these pictures haha. katie and justin, i hope you are enjoying the beautiful dominican weather, while we’re freezing our bums off! haha.
ahhh!!! i’m so so SO excited they decided to do a first look! they were able to have such a sweet moment before the ceremony AND they got a ton of images too!
i love the look of excitement on both of their faces! :)
they both wrote love letters to each other and katie’s bridesmaids were peeking in on them! so cute!
