From the Photographer

Kat and Ryan’s City Beer Hall wedding had the most emotional ceremony entrance and beginning that I’ve ever had the pleasure of capturing. It had me tearing up as I was editing their photos and I’m so excited for you to see such special moments! These photos range from each groomsmen taking a turn helping Ryan get ready, to Kat with her adorable pups, to their amazing choreographed dance, speeches by close friends that spoke to amazing friendships and to a dance party that was second to none! Here’s to Kat and Ryan and to many more amazing years together!


How They Met (by Ryan)

Kat and I met through her friends, Grace and Jared, who I worked with. We were first introduced at tulip festival a few years back, and then really hit it off a month later when Grace and Bessie hosted a brunch and invited me there at Kat’s request. We spent the day together, exchanged numbers and went on our first “official date” in July, a wine tasting and movie at Madison Theatre, where we both drank too much wine and made out during the whole movie, like high schoolers (TMI, probably). We became “official” in February the following year, though we had been exclusive for a while, I was just iffy about labels at the time. I told her I loved her in January, she told me she loved me in February, and the rest is history!
