It was a joy to share in Katherine and David’s wedding day. Katherine was once one of Kurt’s students and we have also been so kindly loved by her and her family over many years. Their family is a wellspring of love for people and love for a Heavenly Father that radiates far beyond the walls of their home. Our day began at the Konstan home where, surrounded by all her sweet bridesmaids, Katherine got ready. From there we traveled to the stunning and rustic Irongate Equestrian Center. Formerly used as a horse show auditorium, the space has been converted for weddings. The fun part is that there are still many horses stabled elsewhere in the building. One of our favorite moments happened when Katherine’s dad Rob got to see her in her dress for the first time. So many tears were shed. Then it was David’s turn. On a gravel road nestled amongst trees and horses grazing in pasture, Katherine walked up behind David and he turned to see his stunning bride. She shared a note with him and then he…gave her a book, a notebook in which he had written her a note every single day while he was miles away in Texas. Katherine broke down. The love they shared was palpable to all around.
And the day had just begun! From there they shared their vows before their guests and their Lord underneath the shade of the trees with sun shining from a gorgeous September sky. After fun photo and video shoots on the grounds we headed into the Equestrian Center for the fun! The fun included homemade Greek pastries, Greek dancing, great food, and laughter. Finally, Katherine and David left in a tunnel of sparklers and off they went to their new life together. Blessings to both of you, Katherine and David!
