October 2011 – Katie and Edward. Eureka, Illinois
I was in central Illinois during the fall of 2011 when I got a email from Denise, the mother of the bride-to-be. A friend from High School and church youth group, Katie, was getting married soon. Their photographer was their cousin, but due to her academic schedule was suddenly unable to make it to their wedding. They needed a quick back-up plan. Was I interested?
I’ve known Katie ever since elementary school. I got to know her during lots of middle school sleepovers and youth group outings. Even with the last minute change of plans, Katie and Edward were still so relaxed and easy going about their day. It was great to see Katie again, marrying the man she loves in the church were we both grow up.
