Adirondack Mountain Wedding - Katelin & Jacob

When I started this business, I knew one thing: I wanted to use my abilities to help awesome couples have the best day of their lives. But before I could start, I needed someone to believe in me and trust that I could actually do everything I was promising. I will forever be grateful to Katelin and Jacob for allowing me to coordinate their wedding day and get my feet wet in the wedding business.

Katelin & Jacob met at Word of Life Bible Institute, a gap year program in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. So naturally, this beautiful area was the perfect location for their wedding day.

They planned a beautiful and simple wedding day that truly reflected their relationship as well as their individual personalities. They implemented a circle shaped ceremony space, turned a white tent into a navy and blush masterpiece, and had an epic first look at the local ski bowl.

This couple let their love for each other and their love for God shine so brightly on their big day. It was impossible not to cry, laugh and smile all day long. A huge thank you to Katelin & Jacob for trusting me and helping me launch my business. You are truly the best!

This wedding has some of my favorite getting ready photos for both the bride and groom. Keep scrolling to see what I mean.
Two of Katelin's beautiful bridesmaids
All the anticipation.
Just a bride and her mom.
Pure joy when you put on that dress.
The groomsmen got matching tattoos before the wedding. Heck of a bachelor party!
Gotta get it just right.
If you want a great morning, consider renting a house along a river in the Adirondacks. Oh, and bring the bubbly.
One of my favorites of Katelin from the day. Got the dress and ready to go see her future husband for the first look!
Knock knock!
Saying a quick prayer before he turns around.
I'll give you one guess as to what he is thinking right now.
Katelin let each of her bridesmaids personality show through their beautiful dresses.
This picture is a must if you have another wife-to-be carrying a bouquet.
This isn't just for the pose, these guys really are prayer warriors. Much respect.
Two of the groomsmen played live music for the ceremony and the first dance.
This ceremony was just full of the sweetest moments.
This couple chose a unique seating arrangement for their ceremony.
Have you considered a way to mix your ceremony up a bit like this couple?
Start to finish set up for a tent wedding. But I love every minute of it. Just look at the results!
This couple loves to create content for their vlog, so naturally their wedding was the best place!
The tables were named after songs that were played throughout the night. When your song played you had to dance!
All you need for an epic dance party is to be surrounded by 150 of your best people.
Thank you Katelin and Jacob for being you. I know God will bless your marriage!

"Emily made my day perfect! She went above and beyond to make everything what I asked for and more. My whole family saw her hard work and were so thankful for her. I definitely recommend. My husband said she's worth whatever she charges, and I agree. She was flexible and reliable."
