You spend months planning your wedding and unless you have an in with Mother Nature, you never really know what the weather will have in store for you on your wedding day. We’ve all had it happen … Monday the forecasters call for rain showers on Saturday, by Wednesday it’s down to a 40% chance and then Friday night forecasters up the percentage of rain to 60% … seriously … 60%, what the heck does that mean, lol!? That there is a good chance it may or may not rain?
It’s important to know this … no matter the weather, your wedding day will be beautiful and your pictures will reflect what an amazing day it really was. And as your wedding photographer, who is slightly OCD, I find it super important to bring at least 15 umbrellas to every wedding, because, well you just never know. The morning of Katie + Mike’s wedding day the forecast was rain, which was scheduled to begin just as we would be leaving the church. Did that scare us? NO WAY!
Katie, you were an amazingly organized, calm, and of course beautiful bride … thank you for being fearless and going out in the rain to photograph your formals! Because of your positive outlook (with EVERYTHING) and your awesome bridal party, we showed that rain who’s boss 🙂 Besides, who do you think was responsible for convincing Mother Nature to stop the rain and let the sun break through after all!?
My day started with Katie and her Girls … She and Mike decided to exchange presents on their wedding day and I am so glad I was there to capture it.
Katie admitted that Mike is an excellent writer and his card nearly brought her to tears …
… and then she saw what was in the box!
I couldn’t agree more 🙂 Taken by Katlyn!
I love the shot on the left that Katlyn caught of Katie …
Katie couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful group of girls to stand by her side! Here, two of them are practicing how to tie a bow with her belt.
You. Are. Beautiful. !!!
Along with her girls, Katie had her nephews near by to add to the fun. This lil guy is too cute in his suit!
Katie’s dress & bouquet. BEAUTIFUL!
Their rings are amazing! Especially love Mike’s Claddagh ring.
Katie, again, BEAUTIFUL! I believe I told you that you looked like a classic 1950’s movie star, and you totally did!
Love the purple!
I love that Katie had TWO hanger’s … made for fun detail photos 🙂
Gahhh! You are amazing!
Katie, one word (besides beautiful) … STUNNING!
Meanwhile, Mike and the Guys were hanging with Lexi, casually getting ready. Guys are so lucky, haha!
Holy HOT TAMALE! Love this set of Mike!
A colorful tie, awesome flowers, and a personalized tie clip?! Perfection!
Love this moment Lexi caught as Katie and her Dad began their walk down the aisle!
Mike loved it too 😉
These two munchkins *almost* stole the show, too freaking cute!
And as if the kids weren’t cute/funny enough, one of the Best Men *almost* lost the rings …err, well, not lost … but they were stuck in his coat pocket some how, haha.
Love the way the crowd responded to Katie walking down the aisle with her dad and love even more the excitement K + M shared as they were announced Mr. & Mrs.!!

Meet Katie + Mike’s AMAZING Bridal Party 🙂
Lexi caught this lovely shot of the girls.
You all are so gorgeous!
Love this shot of the guys … so handsome!
I also loved that they all knew how to have a good time 😛
Seriously you two, could you be any hotter?!
You’re pretty … 🙂
Seriously Katie!? You’re amazing and I love these pics Lexi took of you!
One of my favorites from the day, but trust me, you’re about to see a lot more!
So happy we were able to get a picture will their son Belly, an adorable English bull-dog!
This is what love looks like, seriously!
Another favorite …
Katie kicked her foot up all on her own and I love her for it!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
One thing I enjoy about having a second (and sometime a third!) shooter is all the different angles you can get. On the left is Lexi’s shot, and on the right, mine.
My ultimate favorite from the day! Seriously, I may even order a wall canvas print of this for my office so future clients can see how cute K+M are 😉
Did I mention that Katie is a nurse and Mike is a Firefighter, too perfect, right!?
Instead of traditional numerical table assignments, Katie and Mike opted to assign tables with meaningful numbers …
Let the party begin!
Thank you, Katie and Mike for inviting us to capture your wedding day!! To say we had an amazing time with you, your family and your friends would be a giant understatement!
Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness,
