Hello Dearest Fans,
I had the honor of photographing a true Twihard’s Wedding a few months ago! I’m a big Twilight fan, but definitely nowhere as close as Katie is. They tied the knot at the Flint Hill Mansion in Norcross, GA on August 13th, 2011. It’s no coincidence that it’s the same date that Edward & Bella will get married on in the Twilight Saga-Breaking Dawn movie. Katie tried as much as possible to incorporate Twilight into her wedding. She walked down the aisle to “Claire de Lune” and both her & Michael recited the vows written in the pages of Breaking Dawn. One of her bridesmaids designed an amazing hair clip for her, by only using the image from the Breaking Dawn movie trailer. She had “team bride” and “team groom” buttons for all of the guests to wear. Before Katie left the Reception, she changed out of her wedding gown into a custom made ivory sheath dress designed to look just like Bella’s honeymoon dress from Breaking Dawn (which was a one of a kind vintage sheath dress). She even topped it off with Bella’s black bow belt and Michael Kors peep toed pumps. It was a day made in this TwiHard’s dreams!
There were lots of other great DIY details in the wedding. The centerpieces, buffet pieces, bride’s bouquet, flowers, ceremony details, pillows for the porch swing and many more were all done by Katie and her mom.
Katie and Michael are just the sweetest couple. Their wedding took place in a beautiful garden ceremony, followed by a reception indoors. Katie was on the dance floor about 98% of the time and had such an amazing night! Lots of great food, yummy cake and great music. It was definitely a wedding to remember. Congratulations again to Bella & Edward, I mean, Katie & Michael!
