Happy Hump day you guys! Im SO pumped to finally a share a little peek into Katie + LoLo’s wedding day – has this nickname stuck yet? =D . It was a PERFECT DAY! We had stunning weather for these two and their Robin Hill Farm + Vineyard wedding. This was my first time at Robin Hill farm and Susan and her team did not disappoint. I could have frolicked through their fields all day if the sun would have allowed it. I met up with the girls in their bridal suite as they were working on finishing up hair + make- up and the moment I saw Katies dress I was in envy. The off-white dress with rose gold bejeweled belt. It was a stunner! Not to mention her details were rose gold everythang. Katie has some good taste! She had a family friend do her bouquets and I loved ALL of the greenery with the pops of white here and there. Simple + chic but stunning.
Don’t worry though, Lolo was looking handsome as ever in his Perry Ellis attire. The shades of blue against his fiery hair was perfect for him and his guys. I had a blast with Katie + Logan and their friends. I love when a group of people are open and fun and down for whatever I throw at them. Im still really hoping Logans new nick name of Lolo sticks but I dig it 😉 After everyone was dressed and the final touches on Make up were complete, it was finally time for Katie + Logan to have their first look. This is the perfect example of why I love first looks so much. I changed it up a bit and had Katie stop a little bit away from Logan so he could get the full picture and watch his girl walk to him and HE LOST IT. He hugged Katie tight before she gave him the twirl. So much emotion. I was in heaven. We played around with their best friends for a little bit before it was time to go into hiding as guests were starting to arrive.
Come ceremony time, the emotion didn’t end. Logan lost it again watching Katie walk down the aisle with her father. There is nothing that takes that surreal moment away from you. It becomes even more real that you are about to be married. These two had a beautiful wine ceremony that was full of laughs as Logans grandfather officiated the ceremony. But the real fun was at the reception. Speeches are some of my favorite parts of the day and getting to hear how much Katie + Lolo are loved by their bestest friends was heart warming. Kayla had us all crying before she even started her speech and Austin had everyone in tears from laughter! To end an already spectacular day, Logan serenaded his bride with the always enchanting, Backstreet boys. It was a hoot! The boy actually has a decent set of lungs on him =D Anyhoo, before I get too carried away with my rambles, prepare yourselves because this wedding was a beaut!
