Sitting on the bed surrounded by her sisters and best friends, we watched Katie take it all in. The property was immaculate, the weather was gorgeous, and every detail was laid out perfectly, just the way she'd planned and all that was left, was to breathe. To Katie, the relaxing came from a well executed plan. While Dave and the guys played pool and goofed off as only boys know how to do before a wedding, she dressed, toasted her bridesmaids and calmly prepared to marry her very best friend.
A wedding day is made up of so many little moments, moments that tell not just 'A' wedding story, but 'THEIR' wedding story. I love when couples trust us enough to show their real personalities. Like the moment when Dave was so excited to see Katie appear for the first time down the aisle, He WAVED! I'm pretty sure, knowing Dave, that he thought about running down the aisle and grabbing her, but instead he waved and we caught it...and I'm sure I silently 'high-fived' Grant from across the lawn.
Or during Katie and Dave's own version of a First Look, when they met and touched hands around the corner of a building! And while Dave was trying to bribe Grant to show him Katie's photo on the camera back, Katie unsuspectingly reached down and kissed him on the hand. Love!
Katie and Dave, we cannot thank you enough for the honor of not only capturing your engagement in the city, but the blessing of watching the two of you vow that your lives would be One forever was something we won't soon forget. We have to admit, this blog post is long, and late, and well, it was very difficult choosing highlights when everything seemed to capture our hearts. Enjoy reliving the moments again, and look out - tonight your whole gallery will be ready to view and share!
