I've been so eager to share with Katie and Seth some photos from their wedding day. So many came to share in their special day and it shows how much people care for these two. They got so many votes last February and kind words spoken, I can clearly see why people wanted Katie and Seth to win.
August 21, 2011........
Seth and Katie's wedding was held at Capital City Church in Columbus. It was a gorgeous summer's day with a hint of fall looming. There had been threats of storms to come that day, but it ended to not a drop from the sky.
Seth seemed ever ready to meet his bride.
Katie looked stunning in her gown.....she was breathtaking.
I loved the moment that Katie walked into the room where her bridesmaids were getting ready, having just gotten her dress put on in another room and they caught that first look of her.
The girl's all took a turn to pray for Katie and Seth. What a wonderful way to start your marriage.
A note was handed to Katie shortly before the ceremony from Seth. She could only read so far into it before her eyes began to well up with tears. The girls all started to sing to her to make her laugh.
I want to say thank you so much for your help to Jade from Bella Bride and Tracie for the beautiful work you both did for Katie. As part of my special, Jade offered her make up services and Tracie styled Katie's hair. She looked beautiful!
Seth fit the role of handsome groom well I think!
I don't think there was a dry eye in the church that day as Katie made her way down the aisle. Even I was choked up watching it all unfold before me. I watched as Seth at first kept his eyes firmly on the ground beneath him as she began to walk towards him. As he peered up, he was clearly moved and as their eyes met, Katie began to cry. It was such a beautiful moment.
They finally made it to that moment!
After the ceremony, we went to Ohio State's campus for some photos around Mirror Lake.
Oh how I just love being able to do this for a couple each year...it fills me with great joy to give back. And to be part of such a big day in their lives.
Their reception was held at Valley Dale Ballroom. The place looked like a fairy tale of a setting....perfect for their night together.
We are so happy that we've gotten to know you these last few months and get to know the wonderful couple that you are. You are an inspiration to many. May you have a long road ahead of you with much happiness to come! Check back here in January to see about 2012's contest to get your wedding photography FREE!
