Katie and William exchanged vows outside overlooking Lake Lanier at the Chattahoochee Country Club in Gainesville. It rained just a little as soon as Katie walked down the aisle, she turned towards the sky, laughed and shook her head. But, I know that even if it had been pouring, nothing could have erased the smile she and William wore so proudly that day. And anyways, I’m convinced the rain was a sprinkle of good luck!
Her dress, their rings, and all of the little details came together so nicely. And that bouquet, wow! Katie looked stunning and together they make such a beautiful couple.
I love the in between moments that she shared with her mom, just after she got dressed. And with her dad, during their first look together. I can tell how proud both sets of parents were that day.
We made sure to get pictures on the tennis court, as this plays a big part in their love story! It’s where their first date began more than 6 years ago. They even moved the score to 6 and 4 for their wedding date, June 4th. Love!
Congratulations Katie and William. I have so enjoyed being a part of your story and I thank you so much for inviting me in to document it.
A HUGE thank you to all of the wonderful wedding vendors that helped make this day so special including Kate, who helped photograph many of these special moments!
