Katie and Bruce, a Louisville love story

Category: Weddings | October 18th, 2013

The way that Katie looked at Bruce during the first dance – that was the most beautiful moment of the day. Seeing my friend who I had grown up with so happy was perfect. So many memories of riding the bus together and marching in the band and it all just felt like yesterday. I was honored when Katie contacted me about photographing her wedding. She was excited and knew the proposal was coming! It has been so great to catch up with her and hear about all of the wedding plans. Katie I am so glad that Bruce makes you so happy! I can tell just by the way you two look at each other – you are both smitten. I wish you two all the very best together in life. Thank you for asking me to document your beautiful day! And to both of your families – thank you for being so supportive of this couple – your toasts were perfect.

The moment I walked into the getting ready room I knew it was going to be a great wedding day. I immediately fell in love with Natalie’s dress. One of the things that I loved about the getting ready room was the amount of light coming in from the large windows. And even thought it was raining most of the day, the bride and groom were great sports. We had so much fun popping under awnings of the different buildings and using umbrellas to get so many great photos. At the end of their intimate ceremony in the loft, flower petals were thrown at the couple as they recessed down the aisle. Their fun reception was held down the street in the beautiful Crystal Ballroom. The mirrors and chandeliers were prefect accents for their celebration! Natalie and Mike we wish you two all the very best in your married life! We know you have plenty of great luck in store from the amount of rain we had on your day. And a special thank you to their bridal party for helping with umbrellas and the dress to keep the couple dry and looking great for photos –thank you!

It is wonderful to see two families come together and so openly support a couple. You could tell how much love was in the room during the celebration of the ceremony and at their reception during the toasts and prayers. Although we had a little rain in the morning, the skies cleared up just when we were ready for photos outside. We had so much fun at Sharon Woods with the bridal party and couple. Lucy and William we wish you two all the very best in life and thank you for choosing us to document your wonderful day! And a special thank you to their family and friends who did an amazing job helping all of the beautiful details of the day come together!
