Part of me can’t believe we are just a few days out from Christmas, let alone the start of a whole new year. Another small part wishes that this year could just go on and on so we can relive all of the sweet days that the year brought. So many firsts, abounding joys and SO, so many amazing couples. Whenever I flash back to a wedding, I tend to immediately fall back to the couple and the quirky bits we shared in between on the day. Those moments make us smile, make us relive the beauty of the day, and make us so thankful for having such folks in our lives.
Katie and Jeff’s celebration is the perfect closing to our marvelous year. It was everything they hoped for …and us as well! The weather was mild (not that the cold bothers these guys) for December and we loved it. From the start, it was a calm day that sprinkled of contained excitement. Katie and Jeff let it out during their emotional first look, and then let it overflow into the ceremony and their reception. Here there family and friends let it grow ten fold, cheering and clapping the entire night away. So much love for these guys – it was clearly evident on every person’s face who was there. And happy were we to be able to capture it all.
Katie and Jeff – we hope you are brought back to all of these glorious moments on your special day after seeing these images while you enjoy your honeymoon in New Zealand! Enjoy every bit of it – just as much as we did. Congratulations to you both!!
