Katelyn + Bill A Classic Kingsmill Wedding | Williamsburg, VA


It was a double header wedding weekend and that means there are going to be TWO beautiful weddings on the blog this week!!! On Saturday, I had the privilege of documenting Katelyn + Bill’s gorgeous wedding day at KingsMill Resort in Williamsburg! I had been looking forward to this wedding for MONTHS because I just adore Katelyn and Bill. From their initial emails to their engagement session to Katelyn’s bridal shoot…I can’t get enough of these two! Katelyn had been showing me peeks at the details before the wedding arrived and I just KNEW it was going to be to-die-for!

I knew the wedding was going to be incredible and full of amazing details…but I didn’t walk into the wedding expecting the overwhelming amounts of joy and love that were so evident during the day. From personalized gifts for her entire family to the sweetest daddy-daughter first look to the most wonderful and helpful bridal party…I fell in love with everything about this wedding and I cried and cried the entire day! I’m pretty sure I cried just as much as Katelyn did-haha!!!

Katelyn & Bill: Thank you so much for trusting me with photographing your outstanding wedding day. I adore you both and hope you are having an AMAZING time on your honeymoon! Enjoy some of my favorites!
