Katy & Caleb had a perfect Xavier wedding day that started downtown at the chic Westin hotel! I had been looking forward to this day for what felt like forever! Katy had everything expertly planned and the biggest smile on her face and Caleb was calm and happy to marry his girl! I actually started prepping my camera bag, charging my batteries, and organizing memory cards a few weeks early. That is just how excited I was for their Xavier wedding day and to celebrate with these two!
When I arrived at The Westin, Katy was quietly getting ready and enjoying those last few single gal moments with her girls. Each bridesmaid wearing a different dress in Burgundy! So pretty. She did a first look with her dad, the sweetest, and her mom helped her place her grandmother’s bracelet on her wrist and her veil in her hair.
Caleb & Katy exchanged gifts, handwritten cards, and then it was time for the first look. I love that it was in a private part of the hotel with a fun staircase. We then went downstairs for a first look with her bridesmaids, their faces seeing Katy in her dress, priceless and one of my favorite images from the day! It was such a pretty day downtown, despite the bit of rain.
They had a beautiful ceremony at the church Katy teaches at and her first class of students sung during the ceremony. Those sweet little voices added such a heartfelt moment to the day! We rocked family photos on a time crunch and then it was time to party! Off to St. Francis Xavier for cocktails, dinner, and dancing! What a day. These two are so sweet and kind and just make the cutest newlyweds ever. Happy first Christmas as husband and wife, Katy & Caleb!
