Katie and Michael planned their special day from over 2500 miles away in Michaels hometown of Gettysburg. They envisioned a laid back affair in the backyard and property of Michael’s family home with lots of laughter and a relaxed vibe. Katie and Michael were very interested in capturing the day as it unfolded. They didn’t want moments staged. They opted to see each other before the ceremony but without a formal first look in hopes to complete their wedding portraits all before the ceremony so they could spend their cocktail hour mingling and spending time with their guests, many of which flew in to central pa from California. Their bridal party was filled with their closest friends and family and you couldn’t help smiling when you saw them see each other for their first time. Family was super important to them and they sat both sets of parents and siblings art their head table with them. One of my favorite things I learned was they both have PhDs from Stanford and spent their first date doing an equation together.

Best Wishes Mr. & Mrs. Barako!
