I love meeting my brides through other couples who's wedding I've shot because I really do consider being hired through word of mouth one of the greatest honors! Katie and Aaron are high school sweethearts who just adore each other, as you will be able to tell from the photos. Aaron faithfully serves our country in the Navy and I love that they chose to reflect that in many of the details of the wedding. The whole day was such a sweet celebration with family and friends and I love knowing that Katie and Aaron have a wonderful group of people who will love them and support their new life together!
I'm always so excited to shoot a wedding at Kindred Oaks, since it never fails to be beautiful and I get to work with the nicest people. Zuzu's Petals created phenomenal florals that fit in perfectly with Katie and Aaron's black and pink color scheme. Katie's mom hand stitched the ring bag. As I've said before, I love the little things that make each wedding and each couple unique.
Meanwhile, my awesome second shooter, Carlos Barron, got these great first two shots of Aaron getting ready.
Time seemed to fly by as the girls finished getting ready, and before we knew it, it was time for Aaron and Katie to get married!
Wedding ceremonies usually make me a little emotional, but man, this one got me bad. I mean, look at their faces! So beautiful. I'm really thankful that Carlos got the photo of Katie and her dad walking down the aisle, especially since they have such a close relationship.
We had to race to get the last light of the day, but it turned out perfectly! Aren't the LOVE letters awesome?
Katie surprised Aaron with a slideshow of photos throughout the years of their relationship.
Congratulations, Katie and Aaron!
