Katherine and Patrick are a gorgeous young couple that are high school sweethearts and have been together for 11 years. Yet looking at them on their wedding day, you would have thought they were very newly in love. The level of excitement and joy was absolutely through the roof, which tells me that despite being together for so long, these two are still very much in love and so excited for their future together. Katherine had a huge smile on her face all day long and could often be heard squealing in such a genuinely delighted way that it made everyone around her laugh. She's one of those people whose happiness is just utterly infectious. Patrick is slightly more reserved than his new wife, but you could see the happiness in his eyes. All day he was looking at Katherine like he had just won the best prize on earth. You can totally tell that these two are the real deal.

Every wedding comes with it's own set of surprises, and due to a miscommunication Patrick was just slightly late for the ceremony. So you'll see a prime example of what it looks like when a photographer is completely unprepared for a groom to literally RUN down the altar stairs to retrieve his waiting bride! Somehow, even that mishap was such an endearing moment, later joked about at the reception.

On top of working with such an amazing and sweet couple, this wedding was seriously gorgeous. Bloomin' Buckets created some of the most stunning florals I've probably ever seen. The Coronado served as an elegant and warm space for the reception. Every detail was perfectly executed.
