This Blue Dress Barn wedding in Benton Harbor was truly a fairytale!  It was a beautiful June day when Alexis & John tied the knot! The Blue Dress Barn has always been on my list of ‘Must Shoot Wedding Venues’ & when Alexis told me that’s where they would be getting married here, I couldn’t help but freak out a little inside {just a little} 😉 !!  Seriously, it is a beautiful, rustic barn, filled to the rim with stunning decor. This kind of wedding is straight out of either a Martha Stewart Magazine or Anthropologie, we couldn’t get enough. AMAZING!

Alexis had thee dream dress & simple details tied everything together! You could tell she was very excited to see John during their First Look because she just couldn’t wait to get out there! Her ease throughout the day though was simply divine, she is by far a dream bride. I am so thankful for how she allowed us to do our job, the entire day, always being so laid back- it was amazing!

As you will see below {I will let the photos speak for themselves} this day was filled with overwhelming amounts of joy, happy tears, laughter, lots & lots of LOVE!! Take a scroll on through the wedding worth a million words & I will let it speak for itself. Enjoy & thank you so much to John & Alexis for trusting us on your big day- I still am in DeForest heaven!! =)

Meet Kate

- nicole G.

 I cannot imagine our special day without her. From the moment I inquired back in August of 2020, to our wedding day October 2021, Kate was with us every step of the way. She was amazing at communicating, answering my (many) questions, and making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Throughout this process, she\ became a great friend as well. On our wedding day, she made sure we stayed on track with timing, and made it a priority to ensure my husband and I were taken care of. Her positive energy, flexibility, and expertise made the day so much fun and so memorable. Kate perfectly captured our love--her photographs are of the highest quality and have unique touches that represent each of her clients. We are so very thankful that we had Kate be apart of our wedding day. She went above and beyond to make our day everything and more!

" The best decision I made was having Kate as our wedding photographer!"

We were so lucky to have Katelynn as our photographer! She was truly amazing to work with! We found Katelynn through a friend who had previously booked her for her wedding. Wedding photos were really important to me and I wanted memories that we could cherish for the rest of our lives. After seeing her work, we knew that we wanted her to capture our wedding day! She made coordinating locations and poses stress free. We had a large bridal party and were a little worried about pictures being chaotic, but Katelynn was so patient with everyone and made it look like a breeze! Her kindness radiated all day and our families could not say enough good things about her. She was so great at making us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera! She also made my sunset and veil photo dreams come true with her amazing photography skills! We are so in love with every picture that she took! She captured the best memories for us and we can’t recommend her enough!

Not only was Katelynn super informative about making crucial wedding decisions, but she did everything she could to make us truly feel special.
