Katie & Austin’s wedding | Junk Gypsy styled | Isola Farms | Groveland Florida
There are days that just seem to click. Days where everything is just as it should be. Days that you don’t want to end. Days that every person you meet seems a bit friendlier, the flowers, a bit brighter, the sun, a bit more golden. Those days when you feel that everything and everyone is exactly as it should be. We love those days, especially when we get to share them with people like Katie and Austin.
We have worked with Katie in the past, she is the stylist, artist and amazing creative designer at RW Events, and each time we have worked with her we were blown away. Needless to say, we were beyond honored to be asked to photographed her day. Also, needless to say, we were a bit nervous as well. There is always butterflies, that is how I know that we still love what we do. The vision that she described was as down to earth as it was over the top. She wanted a feel that said come in everyone is welcome and everyone is family. With that being said, it’s much easier to say you want that feeling than it is to actually capture that feeling. You can have everything look exactly as you have dreamed and still have that SOMETHING missing. But Katie and Austin had it all. They knew that you can have the most beautiful venue, the prettiest flowers, the sunniest day, but without the true, genuine warmth of an inviting smile and a sincere, I’m glad you could make it and you are very important to us attitude, it’s still just pretty things.
Katie greeted everyone she saw with a giddy excitement that was nothing short of contagious. And even though I was meeting Austin for the first time that day, he made me feel like I was one of the most important parts of the day and he was just as happy to meet me as he was to greet an old member of the family. That is the welcome, come in and join our family feeling that Katie and Austin bring, something that we are so grateful for.
From the quiet moments before the ceremony, to Katie’s dad officiating his daughter’s wedding, to the first dance under the golden sky, backdropped by an American flag, to the cowboy boots, to the sweeping pastures, to the dancing, to the little things like the firm handshakes and warm hugs, everything was as it should be, because of two people with a love that they felt everyone should share in.
Yeah, the day just clicked, Katie and Austin just clicked, and everything was exactly as it should be.
Here’s to Katie and Austin: May everyday greet you with a smile as big as the one you greeted us with on that day.
XO~Amalie & Jeff
