Congrats to Ryan and Katie. They were married at the Carriage House in NJ on Saturday, August 16, 2014. When I first met Ryan and Katie, I knew that their wedding would be very special. I had the honor of shooting their engagement session HERE, and had a blast at their wedding. The day began with two ‘First Looks’. The first was with Katie and her dad, and I’ll bet there wasn’t a dry eye around (including me). It was touching, tender, and very special. Next it was Ryan’s turn and it was spectacular. I love when brides and grooms decide to see each other before the ceremony; I think there is something very special about a ‘First Look’, not to mention, we get to have a stress-free, fun time with portraits!! I also want to thank my second shooter, Marielle Casanova of Brick Photography for helping me capture this wonderful day!
The ceremony was beautiful as well as the speeches, the cake cutting and the dancing. Katie’s dad gave the best speech I’ve seen to date by a parent. He held out a sonogram photo of Katie and described what it was like to see her for the first time in her wedding gown. I was very touched by this wedding. I actually felt like part of the family by the end; that is how wonderful and caring all of their friends and family were!
Katie and Ryan, I wish you both the most amazing life together. Enjoy this sneak peek!
