EEEK!!! I’m so excited to share these with the world!!!
When Katie told me she had always dreamed of getting married in her parents’ front yard and that’s where she wanted to do her bridals…I had NO IDEA that I was going to walk into this dream garden.
The way the light comes through the trees, the flowers grown by her mom, the horse and donkeys in the fence…JUST GORGEOUS.
Then you put Katie in the middle of all of that –– I can’t even contain myself.
We joked that Katie had her bridal specifically so she could have a session with just Opie, her black lab that she takes everywhere with her. He is one of my favorite animals on the planet and he never left her side the whole day…or on the wedding day!
Enjoy my favorites of Katie’s spring time garden bridal portraits 🙂 Let me know which ones are your favorites in the comments!!!
Now Opie’s turn!!! I remember when Katie got Opie…SEVEN years ago! I’ve always thought he was the most beautiful dog. I’m just sad I can’t get one of his puppies!
Katie brings Opie everywhere with her, so naturally he had to be in her bridal portraits. He was also in the wedding with his little vest and bowtie!
She had a custom-made collar and tag with their wedding date, along with his custom suit (which is actually a men’s medium vest!!!!).
These are some of my favorites with Opie!!! I love the way he looks at her!
Katie’s dad re-did this gazebo just for Katie’s wedding!! It is absolutely gorgeous.
