I think Kara-Lee and Dan had every color of the rainbow at their teal, blue, and citrus Woodend Sanctuary wedding! The gals in teal, the guys in blue, and tons of bright and beautiful flowers! It was HOT but we survived! Kara-Lee and Dan met online and after some convincing, Kara-Lee decided to meet Dan for coffee at Starbucks. Coffee dates turned into dinner dates and dinner dates turned into Dan knowing he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Kara-Lee. He proposed at home with roses, champagne, and a sweet note that included everything he loved about her and when she was done reading he was down on one knee!
The floor was a pretty dandy backdrop!
The girls in their pretty robes!
Kara-Lee’s beautiful sister and mom!
The men had a pretty rough morning… beer & endless games of pool… life is tough as a groomsman.
That’s the face of a happy groom!
Back in the bride’s room… finishing touches…
All hands on deck…
One more pic with mom and dad before she’s a MRS!
Dan’s son, Andrew, writing a letter to Kara-Lee… so cute!
Getting ready for Kara-Lee to come out for the first look!
Look at that reaction!!
They exchanged cards and little gifts before we headed on to take bride and groom portraits! Perfume for Kara-Lee and a keychain with “always & forever” for Dan written in Kara-Lee’s handwriting.
Love her laugh!!!
One of my favorites!
We had an audience during portraits!
Dan rockin’ that blue steel look…
The bride and her smiley bridesmaids!
The groom and his cool groomsmen!
The whole wedding gang!
Alex & Shiloh gettin’ us in the mood!
Gorgeous florals everywhere!
Let the party begin…
As you can tell, the guests had a horrible time…
Things got a little messy during the cake cutting…
yummmm… red velvet
Thank you Kara-Lee & Dan for letting me capture your big day!
