Katie & Zach's Elegant, Rustic Wedding at the Little Herb House
Wedding: 27 October 2018 | Posted: 18 January 2019
I can sum up Katie & Zach's wedding day in five words: What a fun frickin' wedding. Though all our wedding days are fun and joyous, some of them just have a little something extra: a sentimental groom, men in kilts, three perfectly gorgeous signature drinks, a crowd that came to party, everything orchestrated to a T by a best-in-the-biz wedding planner, an abundance of greenery and warmth of heart. Katie & Zach's day, of course, had all of these.
Though the threat of inclement weather sent their garden ceremony inside, calling for a previously-unplanned room flip, both the market lights overhead and the glow diffusing in behind Katie & Zach as they exchanged promises created an intimate atmosphere that the open air wouldn't have been able to replicate. I'm sure, at least, that Zach would have been wiping tears from both Katie's face and his own regardless where their ceremony was held; as it was, the warmth of the Little Herb House couldn't help but affect everyone present.
The same could be said for the energy throughout the rest of the night. Since we completed all family and wedding party photos prior to the ceremony, Katie & Zach spent cocktail hour mingling with their guests, setting the tone for a night where, somehow, this magical couple was involved everywhere you looked. Katie cut it up on the dance floor; both she and Zach hit up the photo booth and made sure their guests visited the bar; Zach surprised everyone with a mid-reception change into the kilt Katie's brothers and dad had just gifted him to welcome him into their very Irish family; and they shared a sweet kiss on their way down sparkler lane (as someone almost burnt their hand off behind them—one sparkler at a time, kids...).
We are so grateful to have been a part of this epic celebration, and endlessly appreciate the opportunity to capture these memories for Katie & Zach. Enjoy a selection of our favorites from their wedding day below, and send them some love and congratulations in the comments!
