Katie and Justin knew of each other through mutual friends in college, but it took a while before they actually met. The pair finally met at a friend’s birthday party at a Cody Johnson concert at Hurricane Harry’s in College Station, Texas. Justin asked Katie to dance and they played a game of pool that had high stakes if he won – a date with her! Katie won and Justin insisted on that date. The rest is history.
The couple was vacationing on a summer cruise with family. One evening during the trip, the group had a formal night. Before dinner, Justin wanted to have their picture taken in one of the photo booths on the balcony. While in the photo booth, he completely surprised Katie by proposing! She said yes and the couple got some fantastic pictures from the perfect proposal!
The couple’s wedding day was fantastic. While Katie and her maids were getting ready and relaxing, Justin and his groomsmen were at the gun range. Rather than a first look, Katie and Justin met on opposite sides of a door for prayer. The moment was sweet and intimate. The ceremony began around dusk at the lovely 81 Ranch. The bride and groom agree seeing each other at opposite ends of the aisle was worth the wait. Katie loved working with Enid Floral & Gifts; Ryan and Matt put her mind at ease and made her dreams come true. The talented team built an altar out of raw wooden pillars and granite, which turned out to be beautiful. The newlyweds reveled in their reception, which was so much fun with music, dancing and toasts. Guests enjoyed roast beef and chicken. The party lasted late into the night with a dazzling sparkler send-off.
