Jim & Katie

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Muskegon, Michigan

You know those movies where the guy goes to a wedding with a friend because the friend didn’t want to go alone?  And…. where “said guy” tagging along at the wedding is stopped in his tracks when he lays eyes on the most beautiful woman he has ever seen? The same wedding where “said guy” gets up the nerve to start a conversation with this beautiful woman and a friendship develops instantaneously?

Yeah……  That was not this wedding! However, this is the exact story of how Jim & Katie were brought into each other’s life.  Jim being the “said guy” tagging along with a friend and Katie attending a wedding for one of her friends. On that fateful October day when they were least expecting it,  God moved in and fate was underway.  Friendship quickly grew into a deep love for each other and they had found what they were searching for.

Fast forward 9 months later… It was their turn!  Their BIG DAY!   (Hey, when you know, you know!)  The whirlwind of emotions was high!  There was excitement galore in the air.  Katie had been waiting for Jim and he complimented her perfectly.  Weddings were nothing new to her, she had been to her fair share, but this time, it was HERS!!!

As I watched the day unfold, it was truly remarkable to see that nothing bothered these two. If someone forgot to do something, Jim & Katie were completely unfazed.  They were focused on what was important.  Making vows to love each other for the rest of their lives. Everything just kind of fell into place seamlessly.

I loved so much about their day.  However, a few things stuck out.   Like Katie’s wedding present to Jim.  She got a book called “101 reasons why I Love You” .  Katie began working on that as they were engaged.  She had just finished the “number 101” reason why she loved Jim just a week prior to their wedding day.  These were not just simple one liners either.  She wrote 101 PARAGRAPHS people!!! and in full detail too!  WOW! What a wedding present.  Another thing that stuck out to me is that they chose to share communion together during their ceremony.  I get incredibly giddy inside when couples have the evidence of God being at the center of their relationship! One last thing that stuck out and held a lasting impression on me was at the reception.  Jim & Katie decided to forgo the Bridal Bouquet Toss.   Instead, Katie got all the single ladies on the dance floor and gave each and everyone of them a flower and asked them to wait for the perfect one that God had for them.  She urged them not to rush into a marriage, but trust that God had someone specifically for each one of them.  Someone who would compliment them and help them in every aspect of their life.  Someone that they could do the work of the Lord together!  AH-MAZING!!!!

I so enjoyed being able to photograph Jim & Katie’s wedding.  Here is a peak into their BIG day!
