I arrived on the warm and cloudy June afternoon, and met Katharine and her bridesmaids busily getting ready in the girls' room, and the boys kicking back and enjoying conversation in the boys' room. I ran off to photograph some details, then came back to shoot Katharine getting into her dress, with help from her mom. The love and excitement was noticeable from everyone, from the giddy conversations in the bride's room, to Katharine's first-look with her dad, to Josh and Katharine's private prayer before the ceremony.
As soon as everyone was ready, we ran off for some group photos on the beautiful grounds at Douglas Manor. The groomsmen were such a fun and hilarious group to work with, and the bridesmaids were so sweet and sentimental during their photo time. After group photos, guests began arriving and soon the ceremony began. It was beautiful and heartfelt, the guests laughed and cried, and then Josh and Katharine were pronounced husband and wife!
After a few more bridal party photos, I snuck away with the couple for some romantic photos in a private corner of the woods. They enjoyed their first quiet moments together as husband and wife, and we got some beautiful photos in the process. Finally it was time to party! Guests danced, enjoyed tacos and pie (how epic is that?!), and finally sent Katharine and Josh away with a sparkler exit!
Josh and Katharine, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day - It was an honor celebrating with you. I wish you all the best, friends! <3
