Katie + Bruce | Lakeside at Welch Estate

I am so ecstatic to share this blog today. Not just becausue I have so many favorite photos, but because of the amazing couple Bruce and Katie are. They have built their relationship around and are building their marriage completely around God. 1 John 4:19 says “We love because He first loved us. “ THAT is what this entire day was themed around. They even included a wooden board with that scripture on it for the details. The ceremony was just beautiful, and they had a set of wooden doors that had the scripture “ What God has joined together let no man seperate. “ – Mark 10:9 I loved this being something that they walked through as a declaration of what was happening that day.

From start to finish – everything was heavenly! They had such beautiful fall weather, and the venue was right on the water, making for some stunning portraits.

Katie is such a sweet and kind soul. She is full of JOY in everything she does. I don’t think you could be around her and not find a reason to smile. I see the Proverbs 31 wife illuminating from her in every way. And Bruce absolutely adores her, which is evident from the way he looks at her. From meeting them at their Engagement Session to every single portrait taken at their wedding, he looks at her so lovingly. Ladies – find a man who looks at you the way Bruce looks at his Katie. Some of their sunset portraits are my favorite example of that look.

I also have to share about the speeches. WOW…. four speeches were given about this amazing couple. ALL four of them spoke of who they are in Christ. I looked at my team when they were finished, and said I feel like we were just taken to church – which I LOVED! They didn’t just share funny stories or little sweet remarks, they gave little sermons on this incredible couple, and how they are going to be world changers! We 100% see that.

Honestly, I could go on and on! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Lockeyer!

“ May the Lord bless you and keep you: May He cause His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The Lord place His favor on you, and give you PEACE! “ – Numbers 6:24-26

    Katie – Wow, beautiful wedding!! Love the way you and your now husband display your love for Christ!

    Can I ask where you purchased the blue bridesmaids dresses from? The colors are beautiful! My finance and I are planning a wedding and would love a similar color this summer.
