Ray & Katie | Longacre House

Nothing I write could even begin to describe the day that Ray and Katie were married.  Peek through these images.  Beautiful gifts for friends and adorable centerpieces that I couldn’t have imagined in my wildest dreams.  Signs here and there letting their guests know how much their presence meant to them.

Katie and Ray thought of everything.

Ladies, you didn’t even have to use your own tissues listening to the vows and witnessing Katie and Ray pinky swear.  

The food at the Longacre house was divine.  The evening consisted of some of the best dancing I have seen on the dance floor in a long while.  Everyone was happy to celebrate with these two.  

So, you get it.  Everything was perfect.

But more perfect was the joy on Ray’s face as he saw his bride for the first time, and perfect was the cute little giggle that you heard from Katie during the ceremony.  I am hopeful that they will cherish their wedding day “perfect moments” for years and years to come. But I am more hopeful that on one of those anniversaries when they are looking through their wedding album, that they can say to each other that their wedding day was the perfect start.

Thank you, my friends, Ray and Katie, for letting me capture your day and all of the details that showed how much you love each other, your friends, and your family.  It was glorious!!!  


*****And huge thank you to Kim Heim for spending your day with me capturing these images.  I love love love to work with you.  Hair and makeup-which rocked-was done by Sarah Ordo at 24Luxe Hair & Makeup.  The flowers were designed by The Vines.  Dance party music provided by Dan with the DJ Crashers.  And really, a HUGE thank you to Missy De Angelis with Gourmet Express…the entire day was as smooth as silk.  I adore you!!!
