Katie and Christian had the most elegant Southern wedding. Watching their event unfold at the Graylyn Estate had to be one of the proudest moments of their lives; it was so evident they put so much of their hearts into this event. Katie has beautiful style and sophistication – her lace dress, her lush bouquet, her pearls and her adorable sandals – every detail of her attire was intentional and lovely. Christian’s attire was no less striking; his gray suit, pink handkerchief, and bow tie were the perfect compliments to allow everything to come together. And the details! Oh the details of this wedding! I could go on and on, but you’ll have to just look at the photos to see for yourself. Erin Mclean did a magnificent job of making Katie and Christian’s vision come to life. For a 750+ guest wedding, that is no small feat!

There were parts of this wedding day that I will never forget. Christian and Katie love the Lord with all their hearts, and their love for one another is literally felt by those around them. Their families adore them, and there was much laughter and tears throughout their wedding day. I’ll never forget when Christian’s Dad, the Pastor who married them, challenged his son to let go and be the husband he was meant to be. I’ll never forget when Christian and Katie saw one another for the first time, and how Christian spun her around probably 14 times, in complete awe of his bride. I’ll never forget the sun setting over what I’m sure is the biggest tent in the world, while hundreds of guests were having the time of their lives. I’ll never forget all the mini-food (I love mini-food!)… the mini-chicken pot pies, the mini- fish n’ chips, the mini- milkshakes, the mini- cake pops, the mini-grilled cheese and tomato soup cups. Most of all, I’ll never forget the way Christian and Katie held onto one another while they danced, as if no one else was in that tent but the two of them.

Enjoy this beautiful, beautiful wedding! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Corts!
