Katie and Ryan will forever go down as one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. Leading up to their wedding day, I was hugely prego. Like waddling-and-had-to-bring-two-assistants-to-their-wedding-because-I-couldn’t-carry-my-own-gear prego. Because their wedding day was in January, just a mere month before my due date, I was worried they’d be worried (all of my kids were born a month early…I was pushing my luck!). They were so supportive from the get-go and never once had doubts in my abilities as their photographer.
However, the biggest thing that I remember about them was just how much they loved each other. I could say that about any couple I photograph, but Katie and Ryan have a sweet love so full of joy and laughter that would make anyone want to stop and be a part of it, and I just loved being a part of their first day as husband and wife. It’s rare that I communicate with the groom, but prior to the wedding day I got a sweet email from Ryan telling me his lifelong dream of seeing his bride for the first time coming down the aisle rather than during a first look. And that’s exactly how we did it. I’ve loved keeping up with them on Facebook over the last year during this first year of marriage for them (their posts always make me laugh…Katie is funny!) and watching where each adventure in life takes them!
This month they celebrated their first anniversary! Happy Anniversary you two! XO (See their wedding blog post HERE)
