Ok, I dare you to go through the photos of this gorgeous wedding day without smiling.
It’s impossible, I’m convinced! I’ve never had a more smiley bride and it just rubbed off on everyone. So, so cute.
Katie and Zach had been together for half a decade when Zach proposed in November 2020 on Folly Beach, SC with their pups Wynnie and Willow! These long-time sweethearts ran cross country and track together in college at Lock Haven University, and moved around the East Coast together after college, knowing that they were in it for the long haul.
Once they started planning their wedding, the excitement mounted as they mapped out the details and thought about celebrating with their loved ones.
With the desire for their big day to be simple and elegant, the couple opted for a palette of dusty blue, blush, and hints of gold over the backdrop of their country club venue, where they’d planned cocktail hour with a view on the golf deck overlooking the golf course.
When the day arrived, there was just so. much. joy.
Katie did first looks with everyone, her dad, their whole wedding party (because they’re all her best friends too), and her soon-to-be husband, it was so sweet.
The ceremony was beautiful and stuffed to the gills with more smiles, and the reception in the ballroom was just as fun as the couple hoped it would be. From dancing, to the bride’s 3-tier strawberry champagne cake that she was so looking forward to, and a “Philly Farewell Station” that included Philly Soft Pretzels, Tasty cakes, and peanut chews, they really pulled out all the stops.
It was the perfect day for the two sweetest human beings! Katie and Zach, you are one of a kind and I am so lucky to have spent your wedding day with you!
Thank you to all of our vendors!!
