I’ve been waiting for ages to post Kathie & Matt’s wedding since it had to be kept secret to be in Southern Weddings Magazine. Their big day was nothing short of extraordinary at the Inn at Perry Cabin!


Guests were greeted with lush floral & fruit displays that screamed “Summer”.

Kathie’s Watters’ gown was made for her. It was elegant but light & airy…important for a Summer wedding on the water. I love the detailing along the layers’ edges.

The ceremony took place in an intimate Catholic church in St. Michaels, MD where Matt’s family priest from Colorado married them.

Kathie’s Bridesmaids were given the task of choosing their own dresses, which ended up being breezy & flattering. The flowers from Amaryllis were the perfect compliment to the peach and gray tones.

A fun addition to the cocktail hour…guests were given custom silhouettes while they listened to blue grass and enjoyed an antipasti bar.

The Bride’s special drink was an Arizona Stinger because she was born in Arizona.

An elaborate seating card display added to the cocktail hour setting.

Croquet and lawn games were set up for everyone to enjoy at any time.

How stunning is this Maggie Austin cake!?! Easily the most beautiful cake I’ve ever photographed. I love how Kathie & Matt’s initials were carved into the tree.

Karson Butler Events & Amaryllis really outdid themselves when they designed two trees (the two interior tent poles) to extend throughout the tent with bird cages & candles.

Our Italian Trip to Rome & Lake Como

5 / 2

I’m convinced that there just isn’t enough time in one’s life to experience Italy to its fullest. It’s a never ending paradise full of winding roads, the most incredible food you’ll ever have, and stories that lie within every inch of stone, plaster, & paint. Naz from NazFilms & I took a trip to Rome and Lake Como and here are the little memories from that trip. One of the greatest things (thanks to Naz) we were able to do was a cooking class by Daniella . We spent five hours in her home learning how to cook authentic Roman dishes. I can’t wait to go back & see her!  All shot on film and processed/scanned by Goodman Film Lab . xoxoKatie
