I am so excited to be able to finally blog this wedding!!! When I first met with Katie & Andy I knew that this was a wedding I wanted to photograph. They were so full of ideas for their special day. The bride Katie is an interior designer (Olios design) and her now hubby is an engineer and can make just about anything! Katie would come up with a vision and then Andy would build it. He built so much for this wedding :) They are both originally from Michigan, but moved to the DC Metro area after college. Their vintage/travel inspired wedding has been featured on Rustic Wedding Chic (part 1 & part 2) & Capitol Romance (part 1, 2, & 3).
Katie & Andy – you two have become the model client :) Thank you for trusting me and allowing me into your world. Love you guys!
Love these save the dates she had made!
Katie even made vintage inspired bus tickets for the transportation the couple had arranged from the hotel to Woodlawn. Seriously, no detail was left undone!
Katie made all of her own invites using InDesign (Adobe) and enlisted the help of her then fiance to help assemble.
I love her hanger!
There are so many fun details in this wedding!
Isn’t the flower girl the cutest? Wait till you see her & the ring bearer:)
Probably one of my favorite images all day…
First Look time!
The bride & groom made the signs, the programs, and so much more!
How gorgeous is this!!!
Love Stuart as the ring bearer
You know it is a modern wedding by the fact that the pastor is using his iPad for his notes
I have seen the combining of sand at multiple weddings, but Katie’s attention to detail here made this even more special. She used sand from Lake Huron & Lake Michigan to represent where they both grew up. Now that is some attention to detail!
They wrote notes to each other and put them in a wine bottle for a future anniversary.
With or without the dog? I couldn’t decide so here are both
Thanks to Anna for getting this shot for me…
The bride’s grandmother painted the wedding venue on the canvas and then all the guest did their thumbprint in the sky. If I remember right it is supposed to represent balloons in the air.
The groom retrofitted the door for their seating cards and the bride handmade all the cards.
Star did a great job on the food! That steak was sooooo good!
Who doesn’t love a candy bar?
Didn’t Tiffany from Buzz do an amazing job with the cake?? Not only did it look good but it tasted good as well
