Katy & Blake | A Mill at Fine Creek Wedding

Katy & Blake have one of those love stories that make for a really great sappy love movie. They've been together for many years, the military kept them apart for awhile, they reunited, been through many deployments but they are finally getting their happily ever after. When I first met Katy, her radiating smile and personality made me know immediately that this was a girl I wanted to be friends with. I was lucky enough to work with her for a few months but even after she moved offices, we remained friends and before we knew it, she was wedding planning! I was beyond thrilled when she asked me to capture their wedding day because I knew Katy would pick the most gorgeous venue and I was so right.

The Mill at Fine Creek is one of my FAVORITE venues. It really is a photographer's paradise with so much room for portraits including the most beautiful stream behind the property. It's lush gardens and perfectly manicured landscape makes for a beautiful backdrop for any wedding. The Witwiski Wedding was easily the hottest and most humid wedding I have ever photographed but that didn't stop anyone from partying.. well, maybe a few people ;) (Heat + Alcohol is NOT a good combination)

I also want to give a huge THANK YOU to my second photographer Jen Forstner Photography. Jen is a good friend of mine and when I found out how close she lived to The Mill, I immediately asked her to come hang out. She was more help than I ever could have asked for. Jen, I love ya, you're seriously a lifesaver. Thank you so much for helping me out and bringing me a cooler of ice water, I love ya! <3

Sorry in advance for the long post ;)
