KATLYN + MATTHEW|WEDDING|WATERVUE EVENTS|FORT WALTON BEACH FLORIDA

Oh, the beauty of this bride...and of this day - March 19, 2016!  Katlyn & Matthew are absolutely adorable together!  They are so comfortable with each other and bring out the best in each other - as it should be.

THEIR STORY:

They met in 2002 while working at a restaurant in Destin. Then at Katlyn's Senior prom, Matthew asked her to be his girlfriend. So sweet! Then the magical day arrived - on July 17, 2015, at a Fall Out Boy concert in Atlanta, where Matthew proposed to Katlyn...to the song "Dance Dance". (see their Engagement photos for a "remake" of the moments).   So, they have been together for quite a while, which makes them super comfortable with each other, and in front of our lens! Bonus for us!!

We first met Katlyn when she was the maid of honor in another wedding we photographed (another of our sweet Brides!)  We totally adored her and thought she was the sweetest thing. She took such great care of the bride!  She asked for our business card that day, and held onto it for a few years - until she got engaged...then she called us!  WHAT??? We were over the moon to have the opportunity to be her photographers!  Little did we know how much we would totally fall in love with them both and that we would consider them sweet friends by the time the wedding was finished.  They are so easy going & fun to be around.  Katlyn is the kind of girl that is totally at home in her blue jeans & t-shirt, and also completely at home in a gorgeous Oleg Cassini wedding gown!  Classy, Elegant, Breathtaking - yes that's Katlyn (see photos below for evidence! ;-)  Matthew is a super cool & super laid back guy that makes you at ease when you're with him. Together, they are a lot of fun to hang out with and photograph.

So, although the wedding day has come and gone, we still are grinning big as we stare at these photos. The day turned out gorgeous - in spite of a bit of rain - which they say is good luck.  It rained on our wedding day, and we've been happily married for almost 21 years.  So brides...if it rains on your wedding day, just consider it a good sign that you & your handsome groom will be crazy in love with each other for a lifetime!  Together, you'll be able to weather any storm that comes along!

Ok....Now enjoy this TEAL awesomeness of Katlyn & Matthew's Epic Wedding Day!

THE TOASTS ARE ALWAYS SO MUCH FUN.  NO ONE IS EVERY QUITE SURE WHAT THE PERSON HOLDING THE MIC IS GONNA SAY.  IN THE PHOTO BELOW, THE BRIDESMAID SURPRISED THE BRIDE & GROOM BY STAGING THEM FOR THE ENLIGHTENMENT THAT IT WOULD BE THE LAST TIME THE GROOM WOULD HAVE THE UPPER HAND.  HA-HA! IT TOTALLY CAUGHT THEM OFF GUARD.
