Here we are about a half month through June and then I remembered how Katie and I met for the first time months ago discussing her wedding day … of course not realizing how fast it would come! Brian and Katie’s engagement session happened only a few weeks ago and then from that time to the wedding day only felt like a couple days! Seriously…

With this couple, not only could I tell how much they cared and loved one another, I also could feel the love and bond they had with God. THAT is so important in a marriage. I love attending and hearing from all ceremonies what love means … it means to yes, be unselfish, but it also means to put God first in your marriage and trust in Him that he will guide you through the entire lifetime marriage. Marriage is a commitment and a sacrifice. In just the time I have gotten to know these two, I can tell their commitment of faith … such a heart warming feeling. šŸ™‚

Congrats to you both, Brian and Katie! Thank you for being so kind and appreciative!!! <3 xoxo! Enjoy the preview!

LOVED the bright contrasting color scheme!!! šŸ™‚

Seriously … I drooled when I saw the back of this dress. GORGEOUS! Absolutely stunning!!!

Time to marry!

HUSBAND AND WIFE!

Her students came to the ceremony and it was SO sweet!!!

LOVE!

Well … I think I may have started this kid’s modeling career! šŸ˜‰ LOL!

One of my favorites!

Isn’t she a gorgeous bride?!

LADYBUG laded on her as we walked around … does that mean luck?! šŸ™‚

Each table had a city name … these were all cities/towns they crossed every time they visited each other. šŸ™‚ Loved the idea!

Crochet flowers the bride made for her favors!

Loved seeing the engagement photos hanging on one of the tables! šŸ™‚

Did someone make these for them?! Lol! Looks like Brian and Katie! šŸ˜‰

One of my all time favorite father and daughter dances … EVER! They polka danced! It was hilarious and really got everyone laughing and clapping! šŸ™‚ Will always remember this!

Then … it was everyone’s turn to dance! šŸ™‚

THANK YOU Brian and Katie for an amazing day!!! Such a joy to be around and wishing you two the absolute BEST out of your marriage!!! šŸ™‚
