Katharine & Matt’s Wedding at The Solarium

Ever since their Las Vegas engagement session at Red Rock Canyon, I’ve been counting down the days until Katharine and Matt’s wedding day!

Sometimes I wonder how such amazing couples find me. With Matt and Katharine, it felt like instant friendship, and that’s saying a lot since the first time I met them in person was in a completely different state! On their wedding day, their friends and family felt the same way. Each one of their guests was kind and pulled me into the conversation, and when you’re a wedding photographer who typically stays on the outskirts to catch the action, that means so much!

My favorite part of the evening came during the toasts. While Katharine’s best friends gave their toasts, they said something so true about who Matt and Katharine are down to their core. For Katharine, she’s always the one to reach out, intentionally seeking time to spend with those she loves. If either one of her friends were having a tough day or needed some care, Katharine was always the first one there for them. And with Matt, they shared a story of how they all met up in Atlanta (this wedding truly had guests from all over!) and how Matt took them out to dinner. On deciding what dessert to get, Matt spontaneously ordered all four! He didn’t want them to have to choose!

I loved these details about Matt and Katharine because even though I’d only known them for a short time, I had already experienced the same traits with them. Katharine immediately befriended me while we waited for the plane. And Matt took us out to one of the best dinners I’ve ever had in the Eiffel Tower on the Las Vegas strip – I’d never been treated so well!

Thank you

Katharine and Matt, thank you for sharing your wedding day with me! You two are so kind, and I’m thankful that I got to meet you and your friends!! Congratulations to a beautiful marriage – I can’t wait to see all the places you go together!

    You captured the love between these two. I was not able to attend the wedding and your photos helped make me feel the bond and beauty of the wedding. They will have a hard time selecting a favorite, I am sure.
