From the very first email I received from Kate I knew we were meant to be. That email also clued me in that she and Paul were truly meant to be!
After getting to know them through their engagement and wedding day, I could not be more convinced of the two above statements.Â Kate’s warmth and charm make her easily one of the most lovable people I know. Paul, with his cool, calm and collected demeanor is the perfect match for darling Kate.Â Together they are all smiles and of course I was too. My cheek’s hurt just thinking about it.
After two fabulous engagement sessions, the wedding day arrived.Â Kate had carefully planned her big day with even the smallest details considered. However, when the day came her mind and heart were completely centered on her groom. I loved hearing her giggle and watching her smile at the thought of meeting her handsome Paul at the end of the aisle.Â Throughout every part of the day, the excitement they shared bubbled over into a contagious joy that I’m lucky to have witnessed. I hope you will feel it too as you scroll through these wedding day glimpses.
Kate & Paul’s Wedding Day involved some seriously fabulous details and people so get ready!
From Kate, “My bouquet was wrapped in a handkerchief and Rosary that belonged to my Nana – Barbara McKenzie Benz, my mother’s mother – who was the most incredible woman in the world. She passed away last year, just shy of her 60th wedding anniversary with my Bapa. They had a lifelong happy marriage, 6 children, almost 30 grandchildren, and countless adventures together. I’ve always prayed for a marriage like my Nana had, and I knew that she was with me as I walked down the aisle towards Paul.”
