Katie and Drayk had an unforgettable wedding. They were married someplace close to home, Katie’s own childhood backyard. Their rustic outdoor wedding was inspired by Katie’s parent’s wedding. Mr. and Mrs. Alexander had their wedding in the exact same location 25 years before.They said their “I dos” as the sun set on the gorgeous property. I loved their décor and the bold choice of having the bridesmaids wear a shade of white. The wedding party was an absolute blast.
Katie’s family is so close. I was just in awe of the love they have for each other. It’s so wonderful how supportive both families were for Katie and Drayk. They are truly a blessed couple.
I loved the signs! What a great touch! I loved the hand painted look along with the worn wood.
Isn’t her dress gorgeous? She is so beautiful.
YES! That is a snake! It almost climbed up the bride’s dress when we were taking wedding party portraits. Crazy.
The beer koozies were so fun. The wonderful thing is that most of the guests used them during the reception.
Their cake topper was specially made for them by a company on Etsy, The Little Gift Box Katie is a Nurse so they had a stethoscope and Drayk likes to work out, so he was holding dumbbells. I love personal touches.
The bride’s parents danced to their first dance song in celebration of their 25 anniversary (a complete surprise)
Wishing Lanterns have become popular the past year. They launched over 50. It was a gorgeous way to end the night!
