Jake & Katie | A Lakeside Ceremony & Delafield Hotel Wedding
One of the greatest privileges of this job is being welcomed in to a family on the wedding day, embraced with open arms, and to meet all of the family + friends gathered to celebrate the couple. It’s an even bigger honor to be invited back into that same family, years later, to document the wedding of another family member.
I first met Katie’s family 3 years ago when I photographed her sister Lauren’s wedding (who actually married a friend that I knew from high school!). I remember watching Katie help Lauren as she got ready for the big day and now to see the roles reversed was such a sweet memory! Although they only moved in to their house a few weeks ago, Katie’s parents hosted this intimate lakeside ceremony — it made for the such a unique backdrop & will certainly serves as a wonderful memory for the whole family for years to come!
Jake has a beautiful little boy named Owen who was so special to watch throughout the wedding day! During the morning, Owen kept straightening his Daddy’s bowtie and asking him if it was “his turn” yet for the ceremony — so sweet! The thing that I really loved was how Owen + his deep relationship with Katie & Jake was integrated throughout the whole day… Owen would affectionately give Katie kisses, cling extra tight to her hugs, and sit on her lap throughout the night — they even shared the cutest “first dance” during the reception! It’s clear that Katie is an incredible mother to this little guy and that her & Jake will be such dedicated parents to both Owen and any future children they may have!
Katie & Jake, you are surrounded by the strongest family members & so much love from your friends! Cheers to this beautiful new chapter together! Xo
The sweetest moment between Owen & his Dad!
