Katie + Kevin | Quad Cities Wedding and Family Photographer
What. A. Wedding.
No, really. This wedding was amazing. Top to bottom, beginning to end. Everything was Katie and Kevin to a T. Let's start with Katie's dress. It started with her grandmother's wedding dress which she used as a base. On top of the base she layered a stunning floral lace appliqué in mint green. The shoes? Gold sparkly Badgley Mischka's. Her jewelry? A boho bride's dream assortment of the coolest stones and gems. Him? An equally sweet pair of shoes and a suit with the coolest pattern!
The ceremony and reception were both held at the Watchtower Lodge at Blackhawk State Park and again, they transformed the space in a way I've never seen. Hanging planters, fresh florals everywhere, succulents and antique gold candelabras dressed the tables. Do you know the Crepe Guy? Well he started a new catering business and the food display alone was enough to make your mouth water. The appetizer? A spread of meats, cheeses, olives and breads that you wouldn't believe. Dinner? Three different kinds of sliders and salads (pasta, corn and lettuce) and dessert was a mix of pie, cobbler and, of course, Whitey's ice cream. No, really.
The dance party? Elephants, kangaroos and walruses. No, really. When the bride says to you "So...there's a chance someone could show up wearing a kangaroo suit...just so you know..." you know to be prepared for anything. Turns out, Katie crashed her sister's wedding in a giant kangaroo suit and her sister just had to get a little pay back ;)
So, yeah, it was pretty cool looking. But ya know what was even cooler? Katie and Kevin. They are the epitome of a couple that is meant to be together. Nothing but laughs, jokes, giggles and pure joy at the idea of getting married. The whole day was a beautiful way to celebrate these two and I'm so so so glad I got to see it all, up close and personal!
If you're a boho bride with a story to tell, hmu. Let's get you on the books for 2018 <3
