Mike + Katie are such a fun couple. There's so much that was a blast about their wedding, and also about them, and their friends and family, that's it's hard to know where to start. Mike + Katie had a fantastic engagement session last fall, which was when I first met them. I immediately loved Katie's emotive smiles, infectious laughter, and simply her love for Mike that shined through. Mike was an absolute blast as well, making me laugh with his dry humor and determination to not smile at first, but then the inevitable smile crept out when Katie's laugh would win him over. It was absolutely wonderful to watch them together, and it was the same on their wedding day at Beavercreek Golf Club...but even better!
Excitement was tangible as Katie got ready; her bridesmaids surrounding her and sharing laughs. Katie was absolutely gorgeous, and ready to walk down the aisle and see Mike. As I arrived to capture Mike getting ready, it was so exciting to see his excitement for the day, and I enjoyed watching the banter between him and his groomsmen. Both Katie and Mike have wonderful friends and family supporting them, and it was an honor to be there to document their day.
Their wedding ceremony was intimate and sweet, and they exchanged joyful smiles throughout the event. Their bubble exit was full of excitement and cheers, and they exited in a stretch limo to the cheers of their friends and family.
But as wonderful as the ceremony was, their reception was not to be undone. Carrying Katie into the Beavercreek Golf Club upside down, Mike started the party and it never slowed down! From a dollar dash that saw the bridesmaids and groomsmen battle to the finish, to Tebow-inspired shots, and all of their guests out on the dance floor doing the Cha-Cha Slide, their reception was one for the books, and a wonderful way to start their new journey together.
Mike + Katie, congratulations! You had such a beautiful wedding, and it was a blast to get to capture it for you. Thank you for entrusting me with your day!
