It may be close to a month after the fact, but it's never too late to celebrate a couple like this! Katie got in touch with me about 6 months ago by a recommendation from the wonderful Courtney Wellmann (thanks Mrs. Wellmann!). Since then we had been keeping in contact through Facebook and email because Katie was planning a Texas wedding while living in Montana!
Despite a minor distance issue, the wedding was gorgeous.
Katie and Kevin tied the knot in Brenham, TX, on June 8, 2013. The reception was at Giddings Stone Mansion; the venue really could not have been more perfect.
Don't get me wrong, the church Katie and Kevin were married at was gorgeous too. It's just hard for a photographer to not play favorites when a place, such as the mansion, looks so good on camera!
As most weddings go, the day was filled with giddiness, last minute preparations, as well as jokes to fight the nerves. It cracked me up watching Kevin learn how to tie a tie on his wedding day.
What gets me is those little moments before and after the wedding that not many people get to see. I choked up a little watching Katie and her father hug and tear up right before he walked her down the aisle, and I loved being able to capture the huge smiles on everyone's faces as Katie and Kevin left the church as Mr. and Mrs. Doyle!
Katie and Kevin are such a beautiful couple and I could not be more thankful that they let me celebrate their special day with them!
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Doyle!
