Beautiful watercolor design from Pip Printing!
The monogrammed shirts from Etsy were adorable on the bridal party!
We did a big reveal with the flower girl, Kallie when her hair was all done! The reactions from Katelyn and her bridesmaids as well as Kallie was priceless!
A heart made from a swatch of the dress that Katelyn wore to her and Matt’s first high school dance was sewn into her wedding dress. Love all of these simple, meaningful touches!
Kallie watched the bride’s every move. She was mesmerized by everything she did… adorable!
Matt’s dad helping him get ready!
And his brothers, Chris and Joey too!
Love the socks Matt!

Check out this beautiful Pergola that Katelyn’s friend put together for the ceremony site! Breathtaking and romantic!
The bride’s nephew was the ring bearer. He threw the ringbearer “football pillow” at the beginning of the aisle. It was so cute and funny!
Matt’s grandmother proudly made their wedding cake! It was beautiful and delicious!
