Catherine & Tyler: Waverley Country Club Wedding

First off, let me say Happy Birthday to this beautiful bride Catherine!! (Her birthday was technically yesterday, so Happy Birthday Weekend, Catherine!!) :)

Catherine and Tyler's wedding day was stunningly beautiful from beginning to end! It was so much like the two of them: graceful, attentive, selfless, loving and fun! Their true lay-down-your-life-for-the-other love radiated throughout their day! And it was so sweet to watch Tyler intently dote on his bride.

As I arrived to photograph everyone getting ready, Catherine's room was so calm and happy! I loved the vibe. As a gift for Tyler, Catherine made a book of their love story that she compiled over the years. It was amazing! Tyler cried when he opened and read it. She in turn opened a gift from him that was a framed script of their first voicemails they had ever left one another! How sweet is that?!

Their ceremony was so beautiful and meaningful! Fr. Lou's words about their relationship clearly reflected who they are together. And their vows, and choice of songs... God was so beautifully at the center of it all.

Congratulations Tyler & Catherine!! May you be richly blessed in all of your adventures ahead! xo

It was VERY windy that day and we walked down by the river to take a few photos in this spot and oh man, several huge gusts of wind blew through! I was feeling determined to snap a full 5 minutes of photos here, but the wind was SO strong that Catherine had to reach out for Tyler in order to brace herself! We headed indoors for a bit instead. :)  (I think this speaks volumes about their hair stylist's work, props to Cassandra Kennedy!)
And what a gorgeous setting this was!
I love this photo of Catherine's sweet family, and this photo of the women below that Josh captured...
Catherine walked down the isle to a string quartet playing the About Time Theme and as she turned the corner with her father and began to walk down the isle the quartet hit the most beautiful point in the song, and as I looked through my camera I actually whispered out loud to myself, "it's like a movie!" It was a breathtaking moment!
After the first dances everyone moved onto the dance floor, and then many family and friends surprised Catherine and Tyler by breaking out in a flash mob dance! It was amazing!!
After lots of dancing, Tyler and Catherine walked down by the river for a few twilight photos.
All throughout the evening I saw Catherine's dad giving high fives to family and friends, so I thought it would be fun to end the twilight stroll with a high five! :)
