a sweetheart ceremony

Several months ago, my good friend Blaire Johnson and I came up with an idea.  With both of us wanting to reintroduce ourselves into the wedding business, we thought that it might be a good thing to revamp our portfolios.  Our idea was to photograph, or in Blaire's case film, a fun, eco-friendly, vintage wedding.  How does one accomplish this?  Throw one yourself apparently.  Which was exactly what we did.  With the help of several local vendors, an awesome band, the sweetest couple, and many of our friends, yes, YES, a wedding came together.  Due to time constraints and the high probability of getting pelted by hail stones and rain, we didn't get to throw the wedding we had originally planned for.  But despite all that, we pulled it off.  We got to meet and work with talented individuals who we wouldn't have met otherwise.  We were able to dust off our wedding caps and kick our creativity gears up to a whole new level.  As worn out as I am, it was worth it.  We had a great time and I hope these photos reflect that.  There are a few more photos on my new Facebook page.  And to watch this wedding unfold, simply watch the video created by Green Hope Productions below.  Long live slide whistles and kazoos!!

    This truly is something very special, Kat. I'm so so happy for you and your talented team. Hope this journey, you've so painstakingly begun, will take you beyond your delightful dreams!

  3. Wow, wow, wow! Lady, this is just so real. It looks perfect! I kept coming here to see the photos and today, a beautiful Saturday morning surprise for me. Congratulations, you guys did great. These photos have such special colors, very vintage feel for sure. I believe that you will have a nice shift and B&N no more. I wish you all the best and I have fingers crossed that soon you will be bride's choice in N. Carolina.
    Can I blog it?
    I opened another blog, a personal one. It's very new.
    Aislin is so big and cute. Keep her for Daniel.

  4. Ha ha! Thank you Zee! And of course you
    may blog it! I think our kids definitely need
    to start a penpalship! I have been thinking
    of the Southwest a lot lately. I miss it. Must
    make a trip happen!


Just so you know. . . you've already brightened my day!
