Luis and Katie: Plantation Country Club, Fort Myers, Florida

I remember meeting with Katie and Luis shortly after their engagement and being so surprised with the amount of details and planning they had done in such little time. We talked about colors, ideas, vintage approaches, their engagement, her ring, and their relationship. Their excitement, joy and happiness was so evident to those around them. They were absolutely crazy about one another and so thrilled about marrying each other.

I have known Katie for a few years now, before her and Luis even started dating. Being that Katie lived with one of my closest friends and is also good friends with my sister, I would excitedly ask how the two of them were doing. They were an adorable couple and I was so happy for Katie. However, after months of dating, and to the great surprise of all, Katie and Luis broke up. Obviously, not a fun time for anyone, but at the same time a great time of refining and reliance by and on Him. I remember talking to her about it on a car ride to the movies one night in February 2009. Was she sad? Yes. But, was she broken? No. She had such great hope that if it was what God truly wanted, it would happen. Her unfailing hope and joy never ceased as she truly remained confident in His plan for her life. In July 2009, her hopes came true as Luis came to his senses asked to start pursuing Katie again. Within a matter of months he asked her to marry him in a shocking, yet oh so exciting proposal.

This Sunday their dreams came true and they made their commitment to spend the rest of their lives together as they said I do at Plantation Country Club in Fort Myers, Florida. It was a beautiful day with a vintage, bird theme approach and the details were absolutely stunning and apparent every which way you looked. More importantly, their radiant love filled the room. I’ll never forget the blessing of Katie, her dad’s emotional speech, the hand written vows, Katie’s gorgeous Maggie Soterro wedding gown, the fabulously decorated reception, talking with Luis before your first look, the moment you two first saw each other, your ceremony, your awesome bridal party, the crazy dance party, and lastly, the smiles written all over your faces. I pray those same smiles, laughs and ultimately your love, continue throughout your years together.

Luis and Katie, you two are so special and I feel honored and blessed I got to be a part of your day and your story. It is a day I’ll truly never forget. Your story is special and speaks volumes about who you both are as people, as believers and as a couple. Congratulations!!

..and one of my L&K faves. Stunning.
