Katie + Patrick | Canyonwood Ridge, Austin, TX

I first met Katie and Patrick – and their PRECIOUS pup Lulu the Destroyer – at their engagement session out at Le San Michele.  (See it here! Katie + Patrick Engagement Session) It was then we discovered that we had many things in common including military life, a love for home renovation and, not the least of which,  how much we love our dogs! I left that engagement session knowing we had formed a friendship and I couldn’t wait to see them again.

Their wedding day was a gorgeous Sunday in May and these two were surrounded with so much love from friends and family, many of which had traveled from Florida where they are originally from.  They shared lots of laughs, happy tears and some downright silliness during the reception. I absolutely loved seeing how much they enjoyed the day, and how much it meant to both of them and to their families. So scroll on down to see their beautiful story – I know you’ll feel the love.

Katie and Patrick, I’m so glad I was there to witness the start of your forever.  Hold tight and choose each other every day.  (And call me when it’s time for family photos because I’m missing you already!)

– Joslyn
