Katie & Spencer | Rosewood Manor Wedding | 9.18.21 | Kayla Bertke photography & design

These two had such a special day! From the surprise first look Katie gave her parents to a visit from their fur baby Sophie, it was all around so special.

After capturing all of the details, we got Katie set up for her first look with Spencer. They wanted to read their personal vows to one another before they saw each other. After a few moments and tears later, these two were finally ready to see one another and it was such a special moment.

After a few portraits of Katie and Spencer, it was time for the first look with her dad. This first look had a twist because Katie wanted to surprise her dad by having her mom stand in her place for the first look. Let’s just say he was definitely surprised. Katie joined us shortly after and her father’s reaction says it all!

Their ceremony was short and sweet and yes, little Miss Sophie got to be a part of it as well!

We explored the grounds of Rosewood Manor, snapping their first photos as husband and wife. We then headed into their reception where they had quite a few cute surprises for their guests! First was how the tables were dismissed for dinner; each table had a TV show or movie and when the DJ played your movies theme song it was your turn to get dinner. Second was Katie’s dad made an adorable slideshow showing Katie and Spencer growing up! Thirdly, Katie and Spencer had a whole choreographed first dance! I love when couples add a little something extra to their first dance. Finally, there was the ice cream bar! I have not seen an ice cream bar at a wedding and it was absolutely delicious!

Katie and Spencer: Thank you for choosing me to capture your big day! I am truly thankful and I wish you guys a lifetime full of happiness.
