Katie & George's St. Mary In The Woods Wedding

posted on: May 9, 2008

Katie & George are a super sweet couple, and they were my first wedding in Terre Haute!! Fathom that- a wedding in the town I live in?! (Not for much longer though..) It so weird for me to just take the elevator downstairs to the salon where the girls were getting ready, but I'm not complaining! I loved being able to wake up in my own bed!

Yes, she was a vision of beauty. ;-) MWAH!

A little warm-up stretch before the ceremony...

The flowers were shades of purple and yellow and each bridesmaid's bouquet was finished off with a very special antique pin from Katie's grandmother, while Katie's bouquet was strung with little ribbons tied in knots, to resemble her grandmother's wedding bouquet.

Because Katie & George are so involved in their church, St. Patrick's Catholic Parish, there was a huge turn out... BEHIND the altar! They had several fathers, brothers, pastors, etc. who all had a part in the ceremony. It was really interesting! And check out the flower girls - ADORABLE!

I love it when I can nail a panning shot of the bride & groom as they rush back down the aisle!

George will be starting his own alterations business after this... (kidding!) ;-) Brides, feel free to cut those hanging loops out in advance so they don't creep out on your wedding day!

After a few portraits around the grounds of St. Mary in the Woods, it was off to the reception at the college's beautiful Providence Center, which is probably one of the nicest places to have a large event in Terre Haute with its tall celiings, large windows, and beautiful architecture!

I'm always up for a game of UNO!

Awesome toasts! Can you guess this impersonation? ;-)

Katie & George had a very special first dance because they actually wrote and recorded their own first dance song! To hear the song, click on any of the images in this post to open up the slideshow.

I couldn't help myself, this was too sweet, and I was in tears...

To make sure their guests had a great time, Katie & George had all kinds of fun at their reception! They had a dance instructor lead everyone in a few dancing lessons, and they even had a hoola-hoop contest!! How fun is that?!?!

Katie & George, I loved every minute of your wedding! I hope you never stop having fun together!!
