mike + katy | married!

I feel like I’ve been excited for this wedding forever – I’m almost sad it’s over ;-(  Katy and Mike are such a great couple, and they really went out of their way to make Tommy and I feel like friends and guests at their celebration.

I’m so happy to share some of my favorite images from their day with all the people who have probably been stalking the blog waiting for them (you know who you are, haha!)

Katy’s dress was stunning – loved the vintage detailing!

Katy had such a pretty group of bridesmaids! (although, i may be a little biased – one of them is a past bride of mine – can you spot her?!).  bridesmaids hair and makeup by brides on location.

fun times on the party bus en route back to the eagle crest marriott, where the reception was held.  It was my first time shooting there – absolutely beautiful venue!

i just loved all the details at this reception.  Chiavari chairs are always beautiful, but the woven ribbons really took them to another level.  Any guesses how long it took do do all these?  And how cute is their Zingerman‘s cake!

Katy worked with event planner Misty Trompeter and florist Hollye Mackler to create these gorgeous, modern tablescapes

This crowd knew how to party!
