Kathryn + Brian Wed

Kathryn and Brian sealed the deal on April 4. It was a beautiful, windy Spring day. We all gathered at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Little Rock for the ceremony festivities. Kathryn was lovely in her silk gown. Brian was dapper in his tux. Both were a bit nervous. As a photographer, I see all kinds of brides and grooms, but there is always something really wonderful about a couple that is a bit nervous... there's an awareness of the gravity of what getting married means. There was a sense that Kathryn and Brian were not walking into this lightly. I really respect that about them.

We shot a few photos to document the day but needed to take some time to rest and reflect on this momentous day. The ceremony was intended to be for a small audience, but quite a few people showed up for the service. It was brief and to the point. The officiant was delightful and had wonderful, simple words for the couple and for all of us. From there, the party got started at the Country Club Little Rock. About Vase outdid themselves with gorgeous, tropical floral arrangements and fun details like candle chandeliers hung above the dance floor. The cake was incredible both to look at and to taste. I swear the icing was more butter than cream - just right! The band, Almost Famous, came in from Memphis. The tunes were familiar for my generation but were the biggest hit with the 10 and younger crowd! Those kids danced until they crashed!

The wedding was gorgeous, the bride was radiant, the day a success! Kathryn and Brian, thanks so much for including me in the wedding festivities. I am thrilled for you guys and look forward to hearing from you when you get back from Hawaii! Live it up! You guys deserve it! Hugs - MT
