Katie and Matt had the most lovely fairy tale wedding. We started the day with Katie and her girls at a hotel while they got their hair and makeup done. Then we went on over to The Olmsted. Katie and Matt's family were bustling around, along with the wedding coordinator, to set everything up. The place looked straight out of a Beauty & the Beast! Katie's dad made the most beautiful storybook backdrop for the ceremony. It even had a little story about them and their son.
Katie got in her dress with her girls around her. Then we got Matt out of his hiding place and had a wonderful "first look" in front of the storybook backdrop. They had a great moment with lots of smiles and laughter. Katie and Matt are so genuine and do a great job of ignoring the camera and being themselves.
After some photos with their wedding party and family, it was time to begin. The ceremony was in a beautiful room with gold Chiavari chairs and light pink accents. Katie and Matt had a friend officiate their wedding and another do a reading. They even incorporated a sand ceremony.
After dinner, everyone moved over to the reception room. Katie and Matt did a surprise choreographed dance after their slow first dance. It was so fun and so them. We had a great time at their reception. The whole day was all about family and you could see the love surrounding them.
Thanks, Katie and Matt for letting us be a part of your magical day!
