When I met with Katie and Randy over Skype from their home in Seattle, I immediately liked them, and I have a feeling that is how most people feel about the couple. They are open, down-to-earth people full of positive energy, and their wedding was no different.

Although the day was hot for Memorial Day weekend in Wisconsin, Katie, Randy, and their friends were all in high spirits. Their first look was in the courtyard of Radisson Paper Valley where their wedding would take place that afternoon. We traveled to Lawrence University in downtown Appleton for photos with their fun bridal party.

The ceremony was personal with unique readings and a “irreversible chemical reaction” to symbolize their unity.Â My favorite part was their vows in which they promised to be by one another’s side when they need help, and get out of the way when they don’t.

For some reason I found that phrase to beÂ a lovely way to talk about a marriage of equals in a real way (or maybe it’s my stubborn personality appreciating their stubborn personalities, lol). Either way, congratulations, Katie and Randy! We wishÂ you many years of happiness!
