Catch a Crotty A glimpse into Katie & Tony's wedding day.

May 19th, 2018. A day that will go down in history as the Royal Wedding, but here in Minnesota, we had our own royal wedding.

Spring in Minnesota is a genuine beauty. The trees were blossoming, the faint breeze and periodic sprinkling of rain made the day gorgeous, unique and memorable.

Katie is a natural beauty. Someone whose kindness and love radiates from within her, and affects everyone who knows her. Katie was absolutely stunning, from every last detail in her gorgeous lace gown to her grandmothers necklace worn around her neck. She was truly stunning, and was a perfect bride for a royal wedding.

Something old..

Surrounded by her closest friends and family, she was pampered and treated to the special day that we all know she deserved. Katie's gown was absolutely stunning, with a low back, gorgeous lace and jewels, her gown was one that will never be forgotten. She looked absolutely gorgeous. Tony wore a handsome grey suit, with a blush tie and his groomsmen to match. Katie & Tony looked amazing, I was so blessed to be present for their amazing day.

With the hustle of getting ready for the wedding, the girls were just full of laughs and smiles as they helped prepare Katie for her amazing day.

Katie and Tony trusted me to whisk them off into the town of Hutchinson Minnesota, where we captured their first look.

The trees were blossoming unlike anything I had ever seen. The aroma of the flowers in the air created a beautiful scene, that forever be remembered.

After our session with the blossoms, it was time to head back to the bus to head to Winstead where the ceremony was held, but not before we soaked in the magic of spring time in Minnesota.

And if this image doesn't sum up Tony & Katie's relationship, I don't know if any will. Tony is an outfitter, and his particular niche of hunting just so happens to be birds, which Katie is scared to death of. Knight in shining armor? I think YES.

After meeting with everyone in Winstead, we gathered around for some family photos, bloopers and fun!

Poor Tony...

It was truly a gorgeous day in Winstead, Minnesota. The threat of rain had diminished, leaving behind a gorgeous day, full of love, joy and happiness.

But, as the day went on, quickly it was time. It was time, to Catch A Crotty!

Promptly after the ceremony, we celebrated with a quick bar hop; creating some memories that will never be forgotten. Moments like these are truly breathtaking. These are the moments that will make you laugh for years to come, reminiscing with friends about the crazy dance moves, the band at the Legion that just was amazing. The magic isn't in how much your dress cost, how perfect your hair is, how gorgeous the venue is or how much you spent. The magic is in the love you have for each other, and being surrounded by friends and family that are truly amazing and caring.

The magic in weddings is the friends. The magic is being surrounded by people who laugh with you, and cry with you. Friends that are there to high five you when you succeed, and lift you up when you are down. Being surrounded be these amazing people is what it is all about. Friends are family you chose for yourself, and this couple has the most amazing family anyone could ask for.

After heading back to enjoy an amazing meal, some decadent deserts and a nice cold beer, Tony & Katie kicked off the night with their first dance as husband and wife, and it was truly emotional and amazing.

Being a bride myself, and having a close relationship with my dad, there are some father daughter dances where I just cry. This was one of those dances. I tried my hardest to hide behind my camera, but lets face it, someone there saw me, and that is okay ;)

Although this day will be remembered in history as the royal wedding, it will be remembered in our hearts as one of the most amazing, romantic and heartfelt weddings I have ever experienced. Thank you Tony & Katie for allowing me to join you on your wedding day.
