Katherine & Beaux | Elegant Southern Wedding

Katherine & Beaux | Charming & Elegant Southern Wedding

Katherine & Beaux’s obvious love for each other made for the most perfectly elegant, southern wedding on a beautiful day in October.  Surrounded by the sweetest families and friends, they proclaimed their love in front of God and became husband and wife in a church that Katherine’s dad actually designed!  It was such an honor to be a part of this beautiful and unique wedding day for two of the sweetest people on the planet! We were in absolute photographer’s heaven!

First of all, Katherine and Beaux are the type of people you just instantly click with.  You might remember their darling engagement session in the spring with the beautiful bluebonnets!  It was one of our favorites!   The love between these two radiates tenfold to everyone around them!  It’s our honor to share their sweet wedding day with y’all! From the emotional first looks to the surprise lantern release, this whole day was a dream come true!
