What a beautiful wedding Katee & Travis had last Saturday at The Rand-Bryan House.  Almost all the details were hand made or designed by Katee, and you could feel the personal touch throughout the day.  I don’t think it could have been more perfect.  Katee was the most relaxed bride, just trying to soak up every ounce of her day and enjoy it til the end.  Travis was a picture of calm himself, excited to see Katee in her wedding dress, but still cool as a cucumber.

We’ve loved the time we have spent with them over the last few months and can’t wait for more fun times together!  Katee and I clicked at our very first meeting.  It took a little while before we got to meet Travis, but when we finally did we were instantly friends too!  They are such a happy couple to be around, and they can’t help but share their happiness with everyone around them.  Congrats and may you two live your happily ever after!

When we first arrived the reception room was empty, which made the perfect place to hang her dress!  I love all the windows in this room!

undefinedundefinedNow check out Katee’s amazing shoes!!!  Every bride needs to get married in a pair of shoes like this!
undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedWe had lots of time with Katee before her weddings to take tons of bridal portraits!  It was so much fun!  And she looked absolutely beautiful.

Love these two : )undefinedundefinedKatee had her two sisters and Travis’s two sisters as bridesmaids.  It was so sweet to just have family on her side.undefinedThe Jr. Bride’s Maid (because she said she was too old to be a flower girl) was Katee’s niece.  Isn’t she adorable!undefinedLoved how we got the exact same picture with the guys and girls!undefinedTravis doing his model thing : )Such a fun group of guys!undefinedOff to the ceremony now!
undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedOne happy couple!
undefinedLove these sweet moments of them walking back down the road right after getting married : )undefinedundefinedLove this photo!undefinedKatee was a brave woman and sat down in her dress!  They were some of my favorite from the day, so to me it was worth it!undefinedundefinedundefined

Both the ceremony & reception were at the gorgeous Rand-Bryan House in Garner, NC.undefined

Pay close attention to all the beautiful details Katee thought about!  Like donating to the SPCA in honor of their dog in leu of favors.undefined
This guest signing tree was adorable, what a great idea!undefinedI loved how she had all the table assignments hanging from a tree. undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedI believe my hubby captured this sweet moment during their first dance : )undefinedundefinedundefinedHer ring it stunning!
undefinedThey elected not to smash the cake in each other’s faces, but I do love the look in Travis’s eyes here.  You can almost hear him debating it in his head : )undefinedThe sunset was breathtaking on their wedding day, so we grabbed them for a few more photos outside!

Look at that GORGEOUS couple!  These next 2 are some of my favorite wedding portraits I’ve ever taken!undefinedThen back inside for dancing!  Check out Travis and Katee’s niece dancing : )undefinedundefinedLove these 3!  Dancing photos are the best!undefinedundefinedundefinedCompletely their idea, and I love it!undefined
