The Lodge at Bridal Veil Falls is such an awesome venue! And, we were so glad that Catherine and Steven were our first couple at this cool place. Catherine is just one of the sweetest people we have met. She always has this huge, beautiful smile on her face. Her personality is bubbly and fun. We got to spend the morning with Catherine a few weeks before her wedding taking bridal pictures. She wanted to do her pictures at her venue. Once we saw the venue, we knew why! It is such a beautiful place. Catherine's mom and dad were there. After talking with them for a bit, we weren't surprised at all that Catherine is such a sweet person. Her parents are both so nice and made us feel so welcome from the moment we met them. Catherine's bridal pictures were beautiful and we were excited to see her again on her wedding day.
Steven was just the kind of guy you would expect someone as nice as Catherine to be with. Always smiling, always laughing, always something positive to say. We love spending time with those kinds of people. Before the ceremony, we had time to get groom and groomsmen pictures taken care of. By the time we were done, there were lots of guests and it was time to get started. My favorite moment of the day was when the huge doors opened and Catherine exited the building with her father. The chandelier inside made for a beautiful backdrop. And, Catherine's father was so proud. It was awesome! The rock wall with the waterfalls was such a great setting for Catherine and Steven's ceremony. Their officiant, Christobel, was so cute and did such a great job.
After Catherine and Steven's ceremony, we spent a few minutes finishing up the official pictures and then had a chance to take some pictures with the newlyweds. There were so many great places for pictures and we were so thankful that Catherine and Steven gave us time. Steven had one requested picture and I couldn't help but agree. The bridal party all played along great and the picture turned out awesome. Once all fun was finished, everyone made their way inside for the reception. The speeches and toasts were awesome, especially from the fathers. Catherine's father had one simple request: Make my baby happy. It was a sweet moment.
Catherine and Steven, we had such a great time with you and your friends and family. Thank you for choosing us to be your photographers. We wish you both many, many years of love!
