It was Katelin in her Monique Lhuillier blush wedding dress. Actually, it was Katelin in her robe without makeup, a dress, or any accessories on. She was already truly breathtaking. It was the buzz in the air of the St. Regis Deer Valley bridal suite overlooking the mountains of Park City, Utah.
It was the custom ceremony alter (the whole entire scene, actually) designed by the fabulous Michelle Leo Events, and executed by Blooms and Blossoms. It was the floor length sequin bridesmaid dresses, and open air tented reception with its sheer white draping blowing in the fresh mountain air. It was all “holy beauty.”
Do you guys want to know what was the most beautiful though? It was Andy and Katelin together. It was their personal vows and the way they made each other laugh and cry, and everyone in attendance was laughing and crying too. It was the way that Andy so genuinely promises to always be “Katelin’s boy”… the way Andy’s mom broke down into tears during her family photos with her husband and sons (and then later tore up the dance floor to every single Michael Jackson song!!!!). It was the way Katelin’s mom was Katelin’s mom, amazing and helpful, and wants nothing but the best for her little girls, and you can feel it just by being in her presence. It was the way Katelin wanted a first look for just her and her dad, and the way he shed so many tears as he held onto her.
The wedding day was everything that Katelin had ever dreamed of since she was a little girl, and it was an honor to photograph this day with so many wonderful people, and work along side so many talented vendors. It was all very dreamy, but truly… truly, it was the outpouring of love that floated around that mountain top that was so special to photograph. We have a million photographs that we’re wanting to share with you all soon, we hope these hold you all over for now.
Congratulations, Madsen’s! We love you from Minnesota to Utah to North Dakota, and back.
Katelin, you are such a stunner. We loved this time that we had with you and Andy just before sundown.
Kate & Sam
