There have been only two things on my mind today, this AMAZING wedding and BASEBALL.  While the two do not necessarily go hand in hand, they are both making my heart race :)  If I wasn’t so distracted about going to watch our Royals tonight I could probably have finished this blog post an hour ago.  I know Katherine & Andrew have a love for our Royals too, so I am sure they understand :) Also, it is taking me some time to try to adequetely convey how truly incredible Katherine & Andrew’s wedding day was.  It was suited perfectly and personally for them and full of musical delight!  I really love their hearts :)  There are so many really special moments that will stick with me and I am sure everyone who witnessed them.  There are some really awesome moments that not everyone was witness to and I am real excited to share those moments with the photos :)  While I really really wish to be a better writer, it is not my talent and I will have to narrate mostly with my photos :) I will start with Katherine’s elegant, timeless wedding dress.

I have to say that I am rather enjoying sitting here on my couch covered up with a blanket, listening to the rain come down and looking through Kate & Ryan’s wedding photos.  These two.  They really make everyone around them smile and laugh.  Kate especially cracks me up, she is so fun, and I love that she is comfortable in her own skin and full of life.  When Ryan goes in for a kiss, she might just stick her tongue out :)  I loved watching Ryan be his cool guy self, no worries, and having fun hanging out with his buddies.  But when photographing him and Kate together, if I would say something like “kiss her like you mean it”, he had no qualms about doing it and meaning it.  You can tell in the photos :)

They were married and had their reception at The Pennway Place Event Space, which was incredibly beautiful and fun!

I will start with Kate’s gorgeous dress and shoes!!!!!
