WEDDING: Ryan and Katie
So Katie and Ryan met in fifth grade and were supposed to go to prom together. That didn’t happen but a wedding happened instead.
You know how they say it takes a village to raise a child? Well, I think it takes a village to pull off a wedding as special and unique as Ryan and Katie’s. The two, along with a village of right-brained creatives, transformed the beautiful Nunica property that Ryan spent his years growing up into a magical wedding venue. From all the amazing details that were handmade (mostly by Katie) to the bouquet made from jewelry and trinkets of loved ones, to the song written and played by Katie’s brother, to the decorations put together by Ryan’s mother, to the invitations – – a collaborative art project between Katie and Ryan themselves – – to all the tattoo art (done mostly by Ryan) I was pretty much in visual Heaven for the entire day. But with all that being said, no matter how great a place is or how awesome the dress or flowers, it’s the love that gets me every time. These two, more than any couple I have photographed yet, were madly in love.
Katie and Ryan, may your love stay as strong and true as it was on this day…
