i had known chris and katie for quite some time from a distance. we attend the same church and have many friends in common..but it was certainly a surprise and honor to get the call from them asking if i would want to document their wedding day.

these two truly are the essence of honesty in their love for one another, both beaming all day as the memories were being made one by one. the joy on his face when chris saw his bride for the first time was undeniable! and when you are around both of them, their happiness and perspective on life is infectious. even with rain having to move the ceremony indoors, katie's demeanor never changed and her appreciation for every moment of her wedding day was so evident.

set against the backdrop of the lovely hydrangea blu barn in rockford, mi - katie and chris didn't let the rain stop them from saying their vows and making the very most of a celebration that brought together their closest friends and family.

thank you both for the privilege of joining you last friday for a wonderful day. it was such a blast! i hope you enjoy your wedding preview*
