“We met at a party I hosted for new graduate students. Katie walked in and my heart literally started beating faster. I then introduced myself and felt butterflies and instantly fell in love with her.”
Katie and Kyle’s Boulder, Colorado wedding portraits were a breeze to capture. Katie grew up in Colorado and has family there, so the two decided to tie the knot in her hometown, and anyone who knows me knows I can’t refuse an excuse to travel! It was a laid back evening, with a perfect sunset to top it off.
“We had a midsummers night dream/ fairy/ renaissance theme because we love fantasy. The theme was inspired by my dress. The sleeves reminded me of fairy wings. We jumped on that theme because it was a great excuse to buy lots of stuff at the Renaissance festival. Who doesn’t want an excuse to splurge on crowns and a sword? It also meant the year leading up to the wedding we had an excuse to go to every Ren Fest within driving distance.”
“The dog is our baby, so of course she was included. Plus, she’s damn cute.”
How did Kyle propose?
From Katie, about how she knew Kyle was ‘the one’…
“Kyle and I were best friends but were dating other people. We’d go on dates, then meet up with each other to gossip about those dates. It was my mom who knew before I did. We were chatting on the phone and she was like “you keep talking about Kyle- why don’t you just date him?” and I was like “I honestly would, but his family seems kinda nuts, I don’t think I want to set myself up for that kind of drama”. And she said “Honey, if I had let crazy family drama stop me I never would have married your father”. How much my family loves Kyle should also be added to the “what I love about Kyle” list. My mom decided she loved him just from hearing me talk on the phone about him!”
What does Katie love most about Kyle?
