Here’s another one, where I can’t quite find the words to describe how much we love and value this couple. They were our third wedding in a row this year that were siblings of one of our previous couples! We absolutely adore this bride, her entire family, and now her groom & his family too! Their day was full of so much love and support, and it was an absolute dream to be their Merrimon Wynne wedding photographer!

It’s a day we’ve been waiting for since we booked it!! We knew it was going to be a stunner of a day full of beautiful details and emotions, but I’m not sure we could have ever prepared ourselves enough for it all! Walking into that bridal suite was everything I expected and more. I was greeted with the biggest hugs and squeals from Katelyn, her three sisters and her mom! I’ll never forget her older sister, our original bride, grabbing my belly and telling the baby how excited she was to meet her, haha! For all of you thinking that sounds strange, she and her husband have become great friends of ours since their wedding, so I was totally prepared for that and loved every second!

Then came time for Katelyn to see her Dad. Again, I was somewhat prepped for this. Her sister’s father daughter moment was emotional, and Katelyn’s moment was just as sweet and beautiful. The thing I wasn’t prepared for was Clayton’s reaction when he was watching Katelyn walking down the aisle. Grooms don’t often let themselves feel that much in front of people, but I love that he just let it go and soaked in the beauty of his bride walking down the aisle to him. Grab a tissue before you get to those pictures below, trust me!

During the toasts, her dad talked about Katelyn being the smiley one, and how just with a glimpse of her smile she could light up a room. That was oh so true for her wedding day too. In every moment, through every happy tear, Katelyn had the biggest smile on her face! The two of them, together, are a strong union that was so much fun to capture with my camera!

Besides all the emotional moments, I can’t talk about their wedding without mentioning all the pretty! From the bridal details to the simplicity of the white taper candles in their Merrimon Wynne wedding reception. I’m pretty sure if I was redoing my wedding today, it would look just like their!!!

Katelyn & Clayton, thank you so much for trusting us with your day. We loved every moment, every detail, every thing about your day! We’re so happy to have been part of it, and wish you the happiest of marriages!!!

Couldn’t have photographed this day without our amazing second photographer Megan Kerns!!! So thankful she was there to capture all the emotions and prettiness with us!
