Even though both of them grew up in Massachusetts, it took moving all the way across the country to California to meet and fall in love. With a common love of adventure sports, the outdoors and spending time with their dog, Katie and Matt were made for one another. Their wedding was a true celebration of two lives and families coming together in support of their commitment and love for each other. There was such joy and tenderness in the way they interacted with each other throughout the entire day. We started with getting ready photos of each of them and although they were cool and collected on the outside, Katie admitted to being "more than a little nervous" with the excitement and anticipation bubbling up inside. After their adorable first look and some couple portraits in a nearby state park, their closest friends joined them for bridal party photos before the ceremony. We made our way over to the meticulously gardened Independence Harbor for their ceremony which left few people with dry eyes as everyone witnessed their grinning, tear streaked happy faces say 'I do'. The celebrations continued into the evening with lots of hugs and some serious dance moves thrown down on the dance floor while Katie and Matt soaked up the happiness from those around them. The Summer Street Photobooth was also hopping all night with wedding guests who showed us exactly how to rock a feather boa. We had a blast shooting this wedding and know that Katie and Matt will share many happy years together. Congratulations you two!!
