When I first met with Katelyn and Andrew several months ago and learned the details of their NYE wedding day, Katelyn said to me "Wouldn't it be just awesome if there was snow on the ground!?" - and so it was, friends.
Days before their wedding day snow fell all around, piled up and melted little. K+A were blessed with incredible weather, chilly - but oh so beautifully sunny. The gorgeous light reflected off that bright white snow and gave them one of the most picturesque backgrounds for photos I've ever seen.
Deer Creek Golf Club offered the perfect space for this lovely wedding. Katelyn, Andrew and their families+friends came together for an 8:30pm ceremony with plans to ring in the new year together afterwards.
Katelyn's Mom and precious sisters helped her into her gorgeous gown, while her sweet friends watched with tear-filled eyes. Andrew's brother and buddies offered him encouragement with a few jabs and jokes while he got himself ready to see his bride.
Out in that incredible light with snow all around, these two saw each other for a first look that was so emotionally charged and so perfect. Andrew's joy was off the charts. They fell immediately into each other's arms, and then straight into emotional and love-filled portraits together.
When the ceremony started, Katelyn and her sweet Dad came through that white curtain and down that candlelit aisle to a guy who couldn't wait to promise that girl forever. Vows were spoken, promises made. They did communion together, and exchanged wedding rings. Announced as husband + wife, with cheers and clapping all around.
Katelyn & Andrew - Thank you so much for giving me the privilege of documenting your perfect wedding day. You were such a joy to work with, and to be around. It's without a doubt that you two have a wonderful and deep-rooted love together, and I couldn't be happier for you :)
