Remember this adorable fancy feast commercial where the guy proposes with a ring around the cat’s neck? Well, Fancy Feast might as well have stole that idea from Scott who knew just how to charm Kate, his fellow cat-loving-girlfriend. On a weekday in the summer of 2012, Scott snuck home in the middle of the day to lay out roses and cake and champagne and tied the ring to their first cat’s neck.
Their wedding was as beautiful, romantic and uniquely-them as the proposal! Though they got married in early April, it may as well have been the first day of summer. Clear blue skies and 80 degree weather, with no leaves still on the trees, gave portraits a little extra challenge, but it was nothing that film couldn’t handle! I love working with film and its flexibility in all kinds of light. Despite how harsh the light was in reality, the images still come out soft and romantic. I love that Kate and Scott chose to do a first look which made the day so much more relaxing for them, as we were able to get all the must-have portraits and family pictures out of the way before the ceremony and they were able to enjoy their cocktail hour. Kate and Scott also left 10 minutes for sunset pictures during their reception, so we were able to get them some more gorgeous portraits in the soft golden light.
Not only did these two work tirelessly to pull together a gorgeous pink and white wedding full of unique vintage and DIY details, but once everything was in place this bride and groom had no trouble having fun at their own wedding. Their ceremony was full of joy and lots of laughter, their cocktail reception was fun and had lots of tasty appetizers and unique cocktails like Starfruit Fizz. With how small their reception was, I hardly expected the dance floor to be filled to overflowing all night, but this crowd knew how to have a good time! Kate and Scott danced all night surrounded by their closest family and friends.
