When I met Katie I knew immediately that her calm demeanor was unlike most brides I have worked with. She’s a woman that knows what she wants and carries herself with dignity and class. That couldn’t have been more true on the day of her wedding. She was calm and collected and ready to marry the man she loves.
Micah too but in a different way. He describes himself as the “mature one” of his friends. And, I think he’s right. He has a quiet and relaxed attitude that combines with Katie and makes them great to be around.
Their wedding was at Gervasi Vineyard in Canton and the weather was PERFECT. They chose to see each other before the ceremony (which I love!) and we were able to capture some amazing photographs of their first look. There is just something about the moment when the bride and groom see each other that I adore…and I love it so much more when they get to have that moment alone (well, alone with a photographer or two.)
My favorite highlights:
- The yellow and gray details…just beautiful
- A bridal party that kept me laughing all day
- Micah and Katie seeing each other and capturing their “First Look”
- …And I’m pretty sure I can still hear everyone singing Call Me Maybe while tearing up the dance floor
A friend of Jenna’s explained how she starting talking about this guy at work who would always open the door for her. Everyday. Jenna didn’t seem sure what to make of it. But every now and then, some chivalry is just the kind of thing that warms a girl’s heart and I pretty sure Kevin melted Jenna’s.
I didn’t get to meet Kevin before their wedding. Kevin and Jenna both live in North Carolina and were here for very limited amounts of time so I had no idea what to expect from this groom. But, meeting him was a joy. I am not sure that I saw Kevin for more than a minute all day without a smile on his face. I can see so clearly what Jenna loves about him. I imagine that same smile was there as he walked with her each day, opening that door.
My best wishes go out to you, Kevin & Jenna. You are both such strong and beautiful people and I wish you nothing but the best. I hope your entire lives are filled with as much laughter as this day was.

When I first met Mike & Kristina I had no doubt that I liked them. But after spending more time with them it is easy to say that I love them. Believe it or not these two are as beautiful on the inside as on the outside.
I wanted to share some of the vows that Mike & Kristina wrote for one another. They were incredibly touching and so full of wisdom. If we could all live this way, how many couples would stay best friends?
