jeremy & katie : the wedding

Our first wedding of 2013 couldn't have been a more perfect way to kick off a new year. We traveled down to Texas to capture Jeremy and Katie's special day. It was a cooooold gloomy January day but boy oh boy was the day full of so much warmth!

Katie's dress just makes me swoon. The shape of the dress and the details are so amazing and yet so simple. If I were two feet shorter than I am, I would ask her if I could wear it for just a day.

Loren Houk from Vintage Comb also came down to Texas to help make all of the ladies look gorgeous.

Jeremy's gift to Katie was this sweet Vintage Pearl necklace with a G for their last name and the country of Africa on it. The newly wed couple actually went over to Ethiopia for their honeymoon. Katie explained to me that they wanted their marriage to be about serving God so, what better way to start it out.

Katie girrrrrrrl!!! You were just a vision!

The first look.

It says a ton about who Jeremy and Katie are that their wedding party consisted of 28 people. They make friends wherever they go and make everyone feel so loved and important.

Handsome brothers. You may remember a post I did last year of these two precious boys coming home from Ethiopia.

I snuck around the corner to find this sweet moment a bit before to the ceremony.

Moments before the doors to the church opened up, Katie took a deep breath with tears in her eyes. Her sweet Daddy said "That is good man in there honey."

Some canvas action at the reception.

The grand entrance.

Dancing with Dad. So special.

I always tear up when Mama's dance with the groom. I know how quickly time flies and there will be a day when I am dancing with my little boy. My prayer is that I would be as happy and proud of my son for the wife that he chooses as Miss Jodi is of Jeremy.

Time to party and get dancing!

Ummmmm.....That girl has hops.

Mr. and Mrs. G, Thank you a million times over to you and your families for bringing us down to Texas to capture this amazing time in your lives. I am so grateful to know you and so grateful that you entrusted me with your memories. May the Lord bless you far beyond your wildest dreams and may you grow more and more crazy in love with one another with each passing year!
