Katie and the girls enjoyed their morning getting hair and make ready at the church. Once everyone was dressed and ready we headed to out to the church property for bridal and group portraits.

Joel had a relaxing morning with his groomsmen at his brothers residence. Then later headed to the church for a first look with Katie.

The first look was held at the Messiah Lutheran Church. We found quiet spot under the trees for Katie and Joel to enjoy this moment.

Katie made her way through the trees and tapped Joel on the shoulder. We think his reaction was so sweet and priceless.
