katie + chris : married

What an amazing couple! Katie & Chris are so much fun to be around and so easy  to be around!  They are incredibly comfortable with themselves and each other and so very obviously in love.  All of these things make them an absolute joy to photograph and I couldn't be happier they asked me to capture their big day! It was perfect from the lovely weather to the faith-filled ceremony and an extremely entertaining reception! I know these two will have the happiest marriage! Congratulations!!Her bridesmaids (and flowergirls; see stick figure drawings) wrote cute messages on the bottom of her shoes - this was Katie's something blue! Loved this idea!Chris wins best gifts for his groomsmen EVER. Is it wrong that I thought it would be absolutely hysterical if they wore this for the actual ceremony?!Chris & Katie decided not to see each other beforehand but exchanged gifts. love this one of Chris seeing his bride walk down the aisle...My goodness, you two are adorable! This is one of my favorites!Isn't she stunning!?! Katie so wanted vibrant leaves for her pictures but most of them had already fallen. We stopped at a gas station while on the party bus and I found this gem of a tree across the street - the ones next to it wear nearly leafless but we were able to get some great color with the one!! Wahoo!The party bus was epic. Don't worry, there are more of these on your online gallery :) Katie's aunt makes these cakes! Holy talented!!Chris presented Katie with a journal before the ceremony that he had been keeping for months. Each entry was signed this same way - how beautiful! This one kills me!The Grand March! So funny! I wish I were this cool:One of my most favorite wedding moments EVER!! The DJ put on the "Wipe Out" song and the dance floor immediately cleared and everyone started running as fast as they could and literally wiping out on the floor! So hysterical and a first for me :) Jake & Allie are getting married this May! I love these next two of them. What better way to end the night than with the Bohemian Rhapsody. Naturally.Congratulations to a wonderful couple!!
