Dan and Katie were married on July 9th at Saint Eugene Church. The ceremony was followed by a reception at Ridley Creek State Park. I met Katie at her parents house a bit before the ceremony to get a few detail shots & photos of the girls before heading to the church. I was impressed with how calm Katie was even in the moments before walking down the aisle. The ceremony was perfect, of course, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching Dan and Katie exchange glances and smiles throughout.
After the ceremony, we headed back to Katie’s parent’s house for basic formals. Her grandmother’s wedding photos were taken in front of the very same house, which I thought was really cute. After that, we made our way to Ridley. Dan and Katie set aside a decent chunk of time for photos between the ceremony and reception which was awesome. I usually have to cram family formals, photos of the bride and groom, and the bridal party into an hour or less which REALLY is not that much time, and can be quite stressful for everyone. I really appreciate them making so much time for me! Dan & Katie even had some time to sit and relax in the bridal suite before the start of the reception after we finished up their photos. I really had fun wandering around the park with them and they were SO easy to photograph!
Hope you enjoy some previews from their big day!
