Ok y’all…go and get yourselves a snack before you settle in to check out the awesomeness that was Kathy and Drew’s wedding, because it’s a long one!! I was with this amazing couple for a looooooong time on wedding day!! They really made having time for me to snap some great shots a huge priority in their timeline, so we ended up with about a gazillion fab photos!! Not only did we have plenty of time to shoot on wedding day, but we had the best weather imaginable! Which is a miracle considering that two days before, when Kathy’s family was finishing up things in the historic barn they’d renovated for the reception, terrible storms swept through knocking out their Ohio farm’s power for almost an entire day! But I don’t think even bad weather couldn’t have dampened the spirits of what might be the happiest bride and groom ever!!! Kathy and Drew were clearly meant to be right from the get go when they met tailgating at Iowa State several years ago. Kathy at least thought they were destined to wed because after a few mimosas she texted her friends that she was hanging out with her “future husband”. Turns out she, and her mimosas, were exactly right!! Just like Kathy and Drew were destined to be together, their wedding was destined to be great! Kathy, Drew and all their friends and family put so much thought and heart and sweat equity into this wedding! All the details were personal, all the toasts were thoughtful and filled with laughter, happy tears were bountiful and it really was their perfect wedding day! I feel so blessed that Kathy and Drew chose me to photograph their special day! Both they and their families made me feel right at home during my time with them in Ohio! I tried to narrow down my favs from this wedding, I really did. But there were just too many smiles, too much fun and too many delightful details I felt the need to share!!! So here are my long list of favs from their wedding….enjoy!
