Katie and Aaron got married the weekend before I left for HOBY, so they’re just now getting to see the full blog post of their wedding photos! Thanks for being so patient! :) Their wedding was very personalized, with lots of cute details. I’m going to keep the words to a minimum and just show you the photos!
The lovely bride getting ready:

A few cool black and whites in the church at the altar:

A family prayer:
Katie read Aaron a letter, as a surprise, that she had written when she was only 16 to her future husband. It was really sweet, very heartfelt, and made for quite a few teary-eyed wedding guests. :)
The grand exit!
In between the ceremony and reception, we stopped at a little park for more bride and groom portraits:
Katie and Aaron are both avid runners, so they laced up their running shoes for a few photos, too. :)
Their reception was at Corbin Farms, in a really neat huge barn — the natural light from one side of the barn was great… and the LIVE BAND was amazing! Seriously, if you are considering a live band in the Wichita area, contact me for a referral. I can’t remember their name right now, but they were seriously awesome and played a lot of great songs — both contemporary and classics. I loved it.
The details were really cute. My best friend Kasie created their cake topper — to look just like the bride and groom, made of clay! How cool is this?! If you want a really personalized, super fun cake topper that you could actually keep and display… let me know and I’ll connect you with Kasie (who also helped me shoot this wedding — thanks, Kasie!!). I love the detail in the cake topper — from the Chuck Taylors to the beading on the bride’s dress. So cool.
Katie and Aaron also had a make-your-own-trail-mix bar for their guests as favors. They tied it all in with a running theme — two trails combining into one. It was really neat!
And a few fun dancing/party shots!
I love the way they’re looking at each other in this toasting photo:
Katie and Aaron, thanks for asking me to photograph your special day. It was such a joy! The entire online gallery is coming soon! :)
