Katie + Joe: Romantic Elegance

Katie and Joe have so much love between them!  And then, you throw in both of their families and you can't help but smile!  Katie and her mom have that awesome Mother-Daughter relationship that makes planning a wedding fun and not stressful at all!  They loved every minute of the planning and we loved having them here.

Cindy Thymius was able to capture the love that this couple has for each other and then the love that their families had for them with every picture she took.  It was cold (and I mean COLD) on their wedding day.  However, Katie wanted outdoor shots and she did not want to have a jacket on for any of them.  So, her bridal party smiled and did exactly what the bride wanted and in the end, we all had a great time with it!!!

This couple was a vendor's dream couple.  They knew what they wanted and they knew how to tell us about it.  Gathering a professional team of vendors is always important when planning a wedding and this bride picked the best!

Much has happened in Katie and Joe's life since their brisk November wedding.  Joe has completed his boards for medical school (come on 4th year!!!), he has completed his commissioned officer training in the military and Katie continues to thrive in her job.  They have moved into their new home as her parents have moved out of their family home of 16 years.  They have added sweet little Chester to their family.  Her brother has gotten engaged and her niece and nephew continue to delight the entire family.  Lots of changes for the first year of marriage.  But, if there is a couple that can roll with the changes, it's the Cooks!
