July Wedding at Mystic Seaport :: Latitude41 in Mystic, CT :: Sneak Peek :: Kat and Matt

At Kat and Matt's wedding, something happened that I have never once seen before, something that highlights the excitement, inclusiveness, and love that was so present that day, for every single person that came down the aisle in the precessional, the groom, the parents, the bridesmaids, and of course the bride, all of the guests clapped and cheered! Being there and feeling that energy, you could not help but be smiling! Their ceremony was so full of smiles and tears and emotion, it was incredible and it was a clear testament and reaction to who these two are. That is the kind of love and feeling that they help bring out around them. Kat and Matt are two of the sweetest people you could encounter, smiles just come easily around them. That energy carried through the entire evening too.. during the toasts (more cheering!), the packed dance floor, the end of the night sparklers.. what a night!

I know how thoughtful these two are first hand.. A year ago, when we met up for their engagement session which we scheduled close to my birthday, Kat brought along a birthday present for me that she gave to me as we were finishing up the session. I was floored and just impressed. She had seen that it was my birthday through the social media loop and thought of me. I am so incredibly grateful that I have been able to be a part of this with Kat and Matt. It was so hard choosing which moments to feature here for them, so many from their wedding day had me smiling! #katplusmatt
