Katie & Dane’s Kent Island Resort wedding day was a beautiful celebration of their unique and classic love. The decor was soft and romantic, with blush and dusty rose elements complimented by elegant rustic touches. Katie & Dane are both sentimental and spiritual people, and their wedding day was a lovely example of that. Their glowing smiles and sweet snuggles were radiant throughout the whole day and I’m so blessed I was able to witness such a magical event. One of my favorite touches was Katie’s inclusion of her late dog Bella – using her collar tag as a bouquet charm and nestling Bella’s favorite toy amongst the flowers.

Katie & Dane shared an exciting first look by the Kent Island Resort gazebo! Dane’s reaction was one of the best I’ve seen!

We grabbed some portraits by the water, the gazebo, and with the incredible hanging crystal decor under the impressive trees.

The wedding party joined us for some fun portraits outside of the manor Inn.

It was only fitting for Katie & Dane to have their ceremony surrounded by nature, so they said I do in this beautiful tree covered space.

Their reception decor was simple, light and airy. It allowed all the focus to be on our lovely bride & groom – and the killer dance floor action!
