Hometown Wedding: Katie + Josh

westmoreland country club wedding photographer
You could hear the roar rolling down the street, and hidden through the trees surrounding the golf course, a man in a light tan linen suit with matching linen and chartreuse tie rode up to his wedding chapel. He pulled into the parking lot, tore off his helmet, and smiled – ready to marry his Katie girl.

Meanwhile, she donned her white dress, laughed with her girlfriends, and swooned over the beautiful flowers delivered to her parent’s home where she got ready in the morning. She was starting her wedding day in the house where she grew up, and soon would get into the limousine to be married in the church where she was raised.

Katie and Josh are perfect for each other. As they stood on the altar area in the little church on a hilltop, he brushed away her tears, and she squeezed his hands tight. They laughed full belly-laughs together between their ceremony and reception, and sat so close together during the mealtime prayer that one could be sure that Josh would never, ever let his Katie girl go. They’re just meant to be.

The church really was situated at the top of a little hill. It was so quaint and cute.

This tree was beautiful! Katie and Josh kind of remind me of Murrysville’s own Blake and Miranda, and the vibe really fit with their personalities.

On to the reception at Westmoreland Country Club! Shortly after this, Josh’s brother took a shot and threw himself across the dance floor belly-first. Yup.
