When I saw this quote from the author of one of my favorite books – The Little Prince – come up in Katie’s and Jared’s request for quotes in their engagement album, I smiled. These two are delightful. There’s no better word. Katie’s smile lights up the room – no joke. And the way that Jared loves her so sweetly is something amazing.
Katie’s day began at the Courtyard by Marriott, where she laughed with friends and picked out jewelry for the day from her mother’s jewelry bags and boxes. I almost got my car stuck trekking the long driveway in drifting snow to Holy Trinity Orthodox Church, and it couldn’t have been more beautiful. The flowers from Auburn Pointe Greenhouse were gorgeous. I can’t go past the next image without giving serious cheers to the maid-of-honor and best man, who held these crowns up for a very, very long time! After a most beautiful ceremony, we headed to St. Sava Serbain Orthodox Church for the reception. I LOVE their baseball cake topper on the cake (Michael Angelo’s Bakery)! Their first dance may have been one of my favorite parts of the whole day. They started with a formal dance – one that they had practiced – when all of a sudden, she whispered something with a smile. They both laughed and laughed, came closer, all the tension melted away. Like it was just the two of them and no one watching. DJ Joe Tetzel did an incredible job keeping the dance floor rocking all night long. The dance off was a great touch! Just an awesome day! The joy on their faces, and on all the faces surrounding them, was incredible to behold. Wishing these two so much happiness in their years to come!!! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your day!
