A Glamorous Wedding at The Ivy House

August 27, 2019

Last weekend’s wedding was our last until later in September, and I couldn’t think of a better way to end our busiest season!

What was maybe the most perfect weather we’ve ever seen, and a design to match by Sara and Jen at Dare to Dream Weddings, it was such a gorgeous and fun day, which is perfectly fitting for Jeff & Katie.

The details were breathtaking, so classic and vintage-inspired, and they were the perfect way to start the day.  The ceremony was beautifully-done and full of love and emotion.  Their portraits captured the romance between them, and also the fun energy and support coming from their bridal party.

We loved watching everyone enjoy themselves during cocktail hour on the patio outside of The Ivy House, a modern-industrial space which was dripping in twinkle lights and covered in greenery. There were smiles & laughs in all directions, a true reflection of the day.  We also saw how much affection their families have for them.  My cheeks still hurt from smiling as Katie’s dad gave the most wonderful toast, and from the way Jeff’s mom looked at her newly married son during their first dance.  These two are SO  loved.

Katie & Jeff, from the moment we met you, we saw just how warm, kind, sweet, and caring you both are. I remember the gift you brought to your engagement session for me (I’ll never forget that) and it’s just so telling of your kindness and generosity toward others.

Together, you are energetic, loving, and fun.  We see your amazing connection and genuine happiness when you are near each other, and we truly cannot wait to see where this takes you on your new journey together as husband & wife!

I know you are enjoying your amazing honeymoon in The Bahamas, but I hope you love scrolling through just a handful of my favorite images from your perfect day!!
