kate-and-mike, JUST MARRIED, and in front of their brand new house!

they are both pretty darn amazing, but let's just talk about mike for a minute, shall we?

in less than one month's time mike: graduated from college (music education); was offered a job; accepted a job; bought a house; moved into his house; and, of course: MARRIED THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE!

wow!!

their day started with a private moment. they'd both written each other letters and shared them in the sanctuary. very very sweet!

how i love documenting the anticipation.

here are the sisters taking a moment of calm togetherness before the ceremony...(grace, matron of honor, sister and best friend  is a silverbox bride, too! -- she and levi got married 2 summers ago)
