Wedding | Matt + Kathryn

At the end of the night, Kathryn's dad raised a toast and said, "When the heart knows..."

And for Matt + Kathryn, their hearts knew that there could be no one else.

These two met on New Years Eve and it took no time at all to realize that their lives were meant to be joined together. They got engaged earlier this summer, and went to work planning their small, simple backyard wedding. 

I'm not one to get too nervous about weather, but when I woke up on their wedding day to the sound of thunder and pouring rain, I panicked.

Thankfully, by the afternoon the clouds had parted and we had nothing but sunshine.

They were married by her sister and brother-in-law under the trees in her parents' backyard... the place that had been her home her entire life.

Thank you, Matt + Kathryn, for inviting me into your beautiful wedding day! It was an honor!
