Katie and Dave
June 20, 2009
On Saturday I photographed the wedding of a fellow wedding photographer! Katie runs Kathleen Rose Photography, so it was a huge honor for her to choose me to be their photographer. You might remember Katie and Dave’s engagement portraits from last fall. They have always been a lot of fun to photograph, with a playful sense of humor and lots of enthusiasm. I learned on Saturday that their families are just as much fun as they are.
Dave sent Katie this adorable text message.
Katie’s niece clapped excitedly when she saw Katie with her veil on.
The wedding decor had a Scrabble theme, including these tiles with Katie’s new initials.

Dave teared up when he saw Katie.
The rain began about 30 minutes before the outdoor ceremony. Katie and Dave were well-prepared with parasols for the guests.

The flower girl gave a daisy to each row of guests as she walked down the aisle.
The raindrops didn’t keep Katie and her dad from grinning.
One of Katie’s vows was to respect Dave’s priorities during football season.

I love this series of Katie and her maid of honor realizing that it had stopped raining.
Their wedding cake was made of several individual chocolate bundt cakes.
Katie and her mother made hundreds of cookie favors in the days leading up to the wedding.
Dave proposed to Katie with Scrabble tiles, so they displayed the board at the reception.
The rain clouds cleared to create a lovely sunset.
The reception took place in the Inn at Hudson Gardens, which is a rustic Colorado log cabin.

Dave and his mom hammed it up for the camera during their dance.
It was a wild party!

Katie set up her own portrait studio and had a friend take photos during the reception.
