I think it is about time they invent time machines… because I really wish I could hop in one to go back and re-live Katrina and Andrew’s wedding day all over again! It was absolutely PERFECT y’all! Mother Nature brought out ALL the stops— gorgeous gold and red fall leaves, a temperature that wasn’t too hot or too cold, and get this: SUN!!! YES! After the world’s rainiest wedding season, CKP finally got to celebrate with a couple on a SUNNY wedding day! While I was definitely fan-girling Mother Nature all day long, what I really loved witnessing the most was how loved Katrina and Andrew are by their family and friends. Each person that I crossed paths with throughout the day had the biggest smile on their face and always had a kind or funny story to share about the happy couple.
Now… I met Andrew and Katrina just over a year ago when Andrew was a groomsman in Megan and Ryan’s wedding. He had so much fun working with my crew that he asked me to photograph his own wedding! What an absolute honor!!! I got to see so many familiar faces at Katrina and Andrew’s wedding, and let me tell you… it was a BLAST!
Seeing Katrina and Andrew together on their wedding day was truly what made the entire day for me though. From the tears shed by all, including Andrew, as Katrina made her way down the aisle, to the sweet way these two held each other at sunset, each and every moment held so much meaning. These two are officially MARRIED, and to say that their celebration was amazing would be THE biggest understatement. I can’t wait for you to dive into the gorgeousness that is Katrina and Andrew’s pink and navy inspired wedding day at The Inn at Villanova! It was such a treat to work with them and their sweet families!
Can we talk about how awesome these ties are?!
I wish I could pick this bridal suite up and put it in my pocket to carry with me everywhere. It was SO gorgeous!
OK… I have to say that first looks with bridesmaids are quickly becoming my favorite!
Time to get these two married!!!
This group of girls was SO helpful all throughout the day!
I think we got THE best late afternoon glow that this fall season had to offer! When I showed Katrina a few sneak peeks she exclaimed: “Oh my goodness!!! I look just like a Pinterest bride!” Katrina… if you ask me, you look even more stunning!
I have to give a huge shoutout to the staff at the Inn at Villanova. They were great to work with!
Andrew LOVES Star Wars, and Katrina surprised him with these little bride and groom figurines. What a fun way to honor one of your groom’s very favorite things in your reception design!
I am so lucky to have the world’s best couples— Photo creds to Ryan (one of my 2018 grooms!).
