Katherine and Derek said “I do” on Saturday in Battery Gardens. Families and guests came from Alabama, Europe and even Australia.
Some getting ready and details shots:

Katherine carried her gorgeous Amsale gown from the hotel to Battery Gardens.
Before the ceremony I took some portraits of Katherine and the bridal party while on the other side of the park Amy got some fun portraits of Derek and the groomsmen. Katherine looked absolutely stunning and some tourists even asked her to pose for a photo or two.
All the bouquets and decorations were done very creatively by Beth Emerson from Bloomsday.
Katherine and her dad ready to walk down the aisle. I also love the lifting the veil moment.
The wonderful ceremony was officiated by Katherine’s close friend, Michele and Michele’s mom.
The reception ended with the song New York, New York and the guests formed one large circle to dance.
Katherine and Derek went on a surprise honeymoon. Derek did all the planning for it and it was a complete surprise to Katherine until they got on the plane.
Wishing happiness to a truly special couple.
