I don't have as many detail photos from this wedding as I usually do. As I went through the photos, the emotions and people came through the most. Sometimes I see couple focus too much on the fluff and not enough on the marriage and people. When thinking about this wedding, I realized "heirloom" is the perfect description. All the plates, napkins, linens, and silverware came from family and friends of the bride. The centerpieces were borrowed as well. This wedding also felt so special to me because I coordinated the groom's brothers wedding the year before! (Check out Steph and Austin's wedding HERE)

 Every place setting was special and unique. White and blue mix matched plates came from family members along with the napkins and silverware.

 Exchanging letters and gifts before the ceremony is always so touching. Katie and Payton still had not seen each other yet. In fact, they didn't see each other until the ceremony...keep scrolling!

 Yup, she blind folded him! When Katie told me her plan of doing photos prior to the ceremony but NOT seeing each other, I thought she was crazy. She explained to me how she had a friend who had done it and it worked out great for them! It takes some strategic placement, and some serious self control from the groom! But they pulled it off!

 Katie stood just out of Payton's sight. Once everyone was in position, they took off his blind fold!

 See? Honestly, props to Payton for not instinctively turning his head to look at Katie!

 Both of my Miller couples! I coordinated Stephanie and Austin's wedding almost 2 years ago. At the time, Katie and Payton were just dating. When they got engaged, Katie called me to coordinate her wedding! I love seeing couples after their wedding and staying in touch!
