{ Katherine + Austin :: Married! }

They had an incredibly beautiful day.  And I mean beauuuutiful!!  It was June 26, 2010, a perfect sunny summer day along the West Michigan Lakeshore. The girls started by getting extra lovely at Be Salon in Grand Haven with yummy treats from Great Harvest, and got dressed at Katherine’s family home on Lake Michigan.  The morning was relaxed and upbeat, as everyone enjoyed an amazing homemade lunch and each other’s company.  Once the guys arrived, it was picture time!  Katherine and Austin chose to see each other before their ceremony, which allowed us tons of portrait time!  I was so happy they decided to do a First Look in Katherine’s backyard, which just happens to be rolling hills of sand dune grasses and the amazing Lake Michigan shoreline.  It makes my heart jump inside, it is SO gorgeous!!

Meet their fabulous bridal party!  How adorable are these dresses?  Seriously!!

This was one of my favorite parts of the day – just the two of them, on their private beach.  ::swoon!::

After the beach, we headed over to Dimnent Chapel at Hope College in Holland, Michigan for their ceremony. I loved their programs, which were not only fans for their guests to keep cool, but also had fun little games on the back!

After the ceremony, guests walked over to Haworth Inn for the reception.  I was loving their mini cakes at the tables!  They were set on platters that were each painted differently.  One guest per table was able to take them home!  Music and dancing by Moments in Time.

SO happy for you two!  Congratulations again!
