The morning of Noah and Katie’s Pennsylvanian wedding had a sense of calm. The fog gently rolling through getting ready to be burned off by 9. The days leading up had been full of preparation and good hard work. An hour after Bryan and I had gotten off our plane, we were building a fence for the couple’s new garden. The sister of the groom made all the pies, the flowers were all grown from the bride’s garden, and the beautiful farmhouse was the house Katie had grown up in.
All of that, lead to this. A day were our dear friend got to marry his bride. For a couple of years I’ve been asking Noah, “sooooo, got a girl yet?” I didn’t ask this question because I’m a junior higher [ok. maybe I am], but because for as long as I’ve known Noah, he has been the guy who knows exactly what he wants. He speaks with purpose, clarity, and wisdom. The day that he found a girl, I knew she would be pretty spectacular. And she is. Katie is everything and more. Their love of family and friends is abundant. Their love of farming overseas and being barefoot. Their love for God. Really, these two just overflow in love, so it was pretty special being able to capture their day.
