Joe & Cate’s Wedding

A little over a week ago, I was able to finally get to be apart of Joe & Cate’s wedding! Their ceremony and reception was in their backyard! They rented all kinds of stuff (tent, tables, killer Bose sound system) and completely transformed their backyard. I know it was a lot of work, but it was worth it…

Some nice details to decorate the tent…

I am thankful to Best Man, who went inside to ask Cate for her dress so we could capture this image. We were so careful handling it during these pictures…but I think the image turned out well!

An important part of the preparation stage: making sure the bar is adequately stocked.

Here’s a shot through the front gate leading to their backyard:

Joe & Cate have an awesome story of how they met. Greg did a great job of officiating the wedding. He has this magical voice and wonderfully shared the couple’s story.

These guys were a day and one email away from never meeting each other. Thank goodness Joe replied when he did. =)

The kiss…

The cake…

I think they were both thinking about a potential cake face while they were cutting…

but…all in all…they fed each other without incident

The first dance…

These two siblings were soooo cute during the whole evening. I asked them if they would kiss each other for a picture…and they happily complied! SOOO cute!

This lil guy liked the song and didn’t mind the crowd-

I normally don’t post photos not related to the B&G, but I got called over to this table to capture this SHOCKING scene! I have never witnessed anything like this before! She reached down, pulled, and left the victim with ‘holy’ hose. =)

I promised to post it on the internet. lol…so here it is!

The transformed backyard looking beautiful as the sun began to set…

Cate was on the dance floor all evening tearing it up, but they were both sure to dance together for the YMCA song.

Joe & Cate: thanks so much for allowing me to be apart of your special day!
