Let me set the scene: a Thomas Jefferson Tower wedding, for two of the kindest souls, on the first truly crisp fall day of the season. Big families, countless friends, people from all seasons of life, all together in one room to celebrate. It was a night to remember!
Many, many years before their wedding, Katie and Andrew knew each other as neighbors. As kids, they grew up on the same street! I had the honor of photographing their rehearsal dinner the night before, and amongst all of the photos displayed from their lives, was one candid photo of the two of them playing in a yard with other friends. While I may be sentimental by nature, this story especially did me in. I get chills and happy tears whenever I think about how two people come to find each other and fall in love and to think that they knew each other all along, as kids living on the same street?? Goodness gracious, it’s so sweet.
Their wedding was as beautiful as their story and full of memorable moments – Katie got ready at her home with her bridesmaids. All of the girls accidentally broke a bed during a group photo (photos below – you’ve got to see it!) and Katie had a “grand reveal” of her dress as she walked downstairs to her bridesmaids. Katie and Andrew chose not to have a first look, and waited until their ceremony to see each other. The minister read words each had written about the other – the qualities they admire in each other, the things they love. They love dancing together, and showed off their moves during their first dance to “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” by the Beach Boys. Moment by moment,it was a day uniquely fit for Katie and Andrew.
