It was probably one of the hottest weddings I can remember from recent years, easily clocking in at well over 100° during portrait time. And yet, you didn’t hear a single complaint from Katie or Justin (and might I add how incredible Katie looked despite the fact that it was a million degrees outside!). Seriously, people, I was melting onto the sidewalk and this girl still looked like she could walk the runway. But I digress.
Their gorgeous wedding had every little touch you can think of and was all tied together with one of my favorite color schemes – shades of pinks and black. The intense heat of the day broke mid-afternoon, however, and as I was shooting details outside before their ceremony (which was to be outside as well), I looked up to a massive, ominous cloud from out of no where just looming past the site. I ran in to tell the coordinator and we got the ceremony started immediately. And, how THANKFUL I am for that – literally 2 minutes after Katie & Justin walked back down the aisle after being wed, the sky opened up and it absolutely POURED. Now if that doesn’t say something about how LUCKY Katie & Justin are then I don’t know what does. And to them, I felt incredibly lucky to be their photographer and be able to capture such a gorgeous day and the love and marriage of two sweet, wonderful people.
Enjoy the images! xo.
One of the best “dances” into the reception I’ve ever seen. Loved how fun this was!
And loved seeing all the guests looking on from the balcony during their first dance…
