bakers ranch wedding: katie + pat

10/19/18

The two of them stood in the clearing. The golden light filtered through the trees and he wrapped his arms tightly around the open back of her dress. It was a moment out of the most picturesque of storybooks and was perfectly fitting for the two souls at the center of it all. And as he held her close and the world seemed to stand still, they both couldn’t help but hear the lyrics of the legendary T Swift in their heads. Today was a fairytale . . . . .

Katie and Pat are married!  They had a beautiful, sunshine-filled wedding day at Baker’s Ranch, that included an outdoor ceremony and barn reception. Katie wore the most stunning open back gown with lace detailing, and looked so radiant it was absolutely no surprise when Pat teared up as she walked down the aisle. REALLY. (We are pretty sure Katie is the reason the term “GOALS” was invented).  And speaking of Pat, he looked ever so dapper in a navy Tommy Hilfiger suit, and we adored how he spent the whole day admiring his bride.

The bridal party’s attire reflected the perfect fall palette of the day, with deep hues of wine perfectly complementing the navy and lighter pops of blush and gold. And after entering a reception filled with lantern centerpieces and gold Chiavari chairs, the newlyweds shared a first dance beneath the string lights before heading outside for a few more portraits and a quiet moment alone.  The entire day was so picturesque from start to finish and we felt so insanely lucky to be the ones to document it all!

Katie and Pat, we had the absolute best time getting to be a part of this special time in your lives and we hope you love this peek into your best day ever as much as we do! Have an extra cocktail in St. Lucia for us!

Love +Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
