The first thing we did the morning of Katie and Clarke’s romantic spring wedding day was to meet Clarke, his dad, Katie’s dad, groomsmen, some family and the pastor at the golf course for a round of 9. We loved getting up early do something fun with the guys. (Okay, we didn’t LOVE getting up early, but we loved that the guys were doing something fun in the morning.) When we arrived at Katie’s childhood home, the bridesmaids were all sitting in the living room watching Bridesmaids. In my opinion, I don’t think there could have been a more perfect movie for the morning. Katie’s details were simple, yet gorgeous; from her white flats, to handmade garter, to her bouquet. Katie made all her bridesmaids personalized wedding day survival kits, while Clarke gave his groomsmen engraved pocket watches and their favorite Boulevard brews. Those kinds of thoughtful details can really make a wedding day special for everyone involved. Skip to Katie and Clarke’s first look, which was one of the sweetest moments we’ve had the ability to capture. Katie and Clarke exchanged gifts; he giving her a guitar to learn on, and she giving him a pair of sunglasses for on and off the golf course. Let me tell you something about Katie and Clarke. They are two of the most genuine, thoughtful, and in love people we have ever had the pleasure of photographing. Four hours of photos, a sweet ceremony and get-a-way car drive later, we found ourselves surrounded by one of the most gorgeous sunsets Kansas has ever offered us on a wedding day. Joe and I had to pinch ourselves thinking that this could be real. Just looking at these photos, you can tell how much Katie and Clarke are in love with each other. You know it has to been a pretty special wedding day when your cheeks hurt at the end of the night from smiling too much.
