Katie and Will’s Rosewood Sand Hill wedding had a lot of sweet details.  Their ceremony was at St. Catherine of Sienna Catholic Church where Katie had gone to as a child, and all the guests dined alfresco at the lawn at Rosewood. It was such a lovely day and here are some of our favorite images of the day…

Like every bride, Katie tried on lots of dresses.  She had actually decided on another dress before she tried on this Pronovias – St. Patrick Barcelona one, which brought tears to her eyes.  It was perfect because, with the removable train, she could have the grand entrance she wanted, but also could dance in her dress later in the night.

Katie wanted shoes she could walk in and also wanted to match the nude colors of the bridesmaids’ shoes, so she chose her Christian Louboutin shoes.

Katie said she wanted sapphires for her engagement and wedding rings, and Will picked the perfect combination for her.  As Katie said: “We were NOT trying to imitate the royal couple Will and Kate!”  🙂

Katie chose the Vera Wang invitation by Crane.  The ampersand design had a very clean and modern design to it.

The 5 lovely bridesmaids wore Alfred Angelo‘s dresses.  Katie selected 2 styles in her wedding colors – navy and burnt orange, and she let the girls pick the dress that they wanted to wear and could potentially wear again.

Since Katie was 6, she’s been dreaming about wearing a wedding dress with a long train and veil after watching “The Sound of Music!”

Katie’s godfather walked her down the aisle in place of her late father and it really meant a lot to her that he was there supporting her on her special day.

The handsome groom, Will, always looks great in a suit, so it was a matter of finding one that would go well with the colors of the wedding.  The gray suit by Calvin Klein was the perfect match.  Katie definitely got tears in her eyes when she saw Will at the front of the altar.

Katie wanted lots of hydrangeas for her wedding blooms, and for her bouquet, she wanted it to look like wildflowers.

What a lovely bridal party!  Katie and her maid of honor have been best friends for 20 years!
