Matt & Catelyn | A Blackhawk Country Club Wedding
It feels like I’ve been waiting forever for this wedding day… and if I feel this way, I can’t even imagine how long it felt for Matt & Catelyn!!!
It’s been over 2 years since that first email dropped into my inbox. As many couples experienced, Matt & Catelyn’s original plans for an August 2020 wedding had to be postponed. I truly cannot imagine the stress that planning, delaying, postponing, and replanning a wedding would cause! But M & C handled the entire ordeal with such grace. From our very first conversation, I was so excited to meet not only Matt & Catelyn but their families too — it was so clear from the very beginning how important family was to both of them. As a wedding photographer, I always find it so incredible to meet the people that helped shape their lives.
I always try to pick a favorite moment from my couples wedding — as an “outsider” looking in on this very special day. There were a million things I could write about like how sweet & genuine of a soul Catelyn is or how kind & considerate Matt is… but the moment I keep coming back to was the speech that Matt’s little brother made. It’s a tall order to ask someone to create a speech that makes every single person in the room cry but as I looked around (through tear filled eyes), the room burst with emotion as Matt’s brother called Matt his hero. It’s no wonder that Matt & Catelyn spoke so highly of their entire family from that very first email to me <3
Matt & Catelyn, I’m so happy that the wait is finally over & you guys are able to start this exciting new chapter together! Cheers to the beautiful life you’re building!!! Xo
Such a sweet first-look moment!
These stolen moments bring such joy <3
A favorite, so timeless!
