kate + colin | woodend sanctuary

Last Friday, I had the pleasure of photographing Kate and Colin’s gorgeous wedding at Woodend Sanctuary. The day was just beautiful, and Kate and Colin are such a sweet and genuine couple; I loved watching them become husband and wife! Their ceremony and reception could not have been more beautiful and intimate. And the love that they both have for their families was evident in the way that everyone was involved the ceremony and celebration. I had such a great time capturing their day.

Kate’s gift from her bridesmaids is on the left… her “something blue”.

Kate, you’re stunning. Seriously.

Kate’s father passed away ten years ago, and each of her three older brothers played a special role in the wedding. (Her oldest brother Brendan rode to the church with her before walking her down the aisle.) It was so touching.

In the small amount of time that we had before sunset, we were able to capture some of the most tender and intimate portraits. Kate and Colin were just so happy to be married… it was probably my favorite part of the whole evening.


Thank you, Ali, for helping me capture these sweet reception details!

Instead of wedding cake, Kate and Colin’s guests showered the couple with homemade pies. It was such a sweet (and delicious!) touch at the end of the evening!

One more…

Kate and Colin: I can’t thank you enough for inviting me to spend your wedding day with you. You both are so genuine, and it was truly my pleasure. Congratulations!

    Hi! Your Mom sent me the photos of your wedding. I know how much “B” looked forward to being with you both that day. You sent him ‘home’ pretty beat up (laugh)!! He raved about the day… I can see he was right.
    His surgery is over and I’ll be seeing him this afternoon . He’s still in ‘re
    -covery’ as I write.
    Wishing you both a lifetime of deepening love and growing peace.
