She says he is sincere, altruistic, and dedicated and he says she is bubbly, compassionate, and outgoing.
I finally made my way back to Charleston, SC for Katelyn and Austin’s adorable southern wedding, excited to capture the sweet moments I knew were to come throughout their special day. All of the qualities that Austin and Katelyn shared about each other above are so evident in these two and really shined throughout the entire wedding day. Despite the downpour of rain throughout the afternoon, Katelyn and Austin stayed cheerful and made the most of their time together, especially during the exchange of heartfelt letters and gifts during their first look. And lucky us, the rain miraculously cleared just in time for the start of the ceremony in the beautiful St. Luke’s Chapel.
After a fun night of singing, dancing, and cake cutting at the American Theater, Katelyn and Austin were sent off by friends and family, running through a shower of gold sparkly pompoms. It was the cutest! Katelyn and Austin are both excited about building their future together and are celebrating the end of the days as a long-distance couple. These two made it so easy to capture the incredible love they have for each other just by being their fun, easy going selves. Katelyn is a Chi Omega national consultant and it was another Chi O who sent her my way. We felt instantly connected through our sisterhood 😉 and I so loved walking along with her through her wedding process. She insisted I jump in for the Chi O sorority song sung at her wedding and it was such a fun and special moment for me! It was an honor being a part of their wedding and celebration and an honor to get to know and become good friends with both Katelyn and Austin. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Katelyn and Austin in this next chapter of life!This was a Love Be Photo and Video day so make sure to check out their highlight video as well! Special thanks to Becca Paul for assisting with photography and Liz Kindred for assisting with video.
