Wes and Brittany April 14, 2014!!

Wow!  I really had a difficult time choosing my favorite photos from Wes and Brittany’s wedding at Glendalough Manor on April 14, 2014.  A beautiful, Spring day that ended up getting rained on and the ceremony was moved inside.  Although Wes and Brittany were not able to get married in the gardens as they had originally planned, somehow, Katie with Blackbird Photography was able to capture some of the most stunning colors and photos outside.  I am in LOVE with the details in this wedding; the simplicity yet magical details that made their day so unique and special.

Hope you enjoy as much as I do!

Incorporating Your Children Into You’re Wedding!

Children at weddings?  A bit of a controversial topic amongst wedding guests and the bride and groom, children at weddings are becoming a regular affair.  Why?  Well, most brides and grooms already have children before they decide to take the plunge.  Backwards you may think but thanks to a boom of celebrities like Jessica Simpson, Kourtney Kardashian, Mila Kunis to name a few, starting a family before saying I do is almost starting to become a trend.

Yes, there are some advantages to having children before you get married.  Although some may be a bit traditional, we have had the pleasure to marry many many couples that have children together.  I have noticed that the couples that have children before marriage tend to be a little more relaxed on their wedding day.  Not sweating the small stuff is what they endure everyday with a child after all so it comes naturally to them.  You also get to involve your child in one of the biggest days of your lives together as a couple.

Check out these adorable family photos:)

Patriotic Wedding Bliss!

In light of The Fourth Of July celebrations, I always think of July as the patriotic month.  Coming from a military family myself, I have a special place in my heart for the men and women that serve and protect our country!  Realizing that it is especially difficult to plan a wedding when your spouse is stationed overseas and unavailable to make important decisions with you for your special day.  I want to pay tribute to these couples and highlight how beautiful the photos from a military wedding can be!

Incorporating patriotic elements into your ceremony and reception can sometimes be a bit over done.  Here are some great examples of executing this theme to perfection.
