I met Katie in the seventh grade. Think braces + awkward years. There we would sit, a team of girls in the back of a soccer bus, giggling about boys and planning our futures with countless games of MASH. Katie and I kept in touch through High School and ended up attending Freshmen year of college together in Duluth. After that first year she transferred to Nebraska and the next time I would see her would be back on the hillside, engaged to the man of her dreams. Enter Barry, a perfect match for a very special lady.
When Barry and Katie asked me to photograph their wedding day, I knew it was going to be a perfect fit. From the moment I met him, I could see how much he loved her, and vice versa. Katie’s contagious laugh and outgoing characteristics fit perfectly with Barry’s reserved nature and hilarious sarcasm. Truly good people who I have the great pleasure of calling my friends.
I promised Katie I wouldn’t cry on her wedding day, but that went out the window when she walked down the aisle. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the church. It was a beautiful and sweet moment that I will never forget. The day was amazing. Picture perfect. Filled to the brim with love + laughter. She was the most beautiful bride, and her groom was smitten.
Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Albert, a wonderful couple that I adore. Thank you for choosing me to tell your love story. May life bless you with many years of wedded bliss.
