On News Year's Evewe spent the day with Katelyn and Sam. It was actually my first wedding back since I had Jude. It was such a fun day. I think I talked about how nice it was and how beautiful everything was (the dress, the church, the shoes, the reception hall and Katelyn) for the next few days! Even looking back over the pictures a week later, I am so impressed with what a great job these guys did with planning their wedding. I really had a great day with Jesse at the wedding and it was a fun way to bring in the New Year.
Katelyn and Sam are both from Ohio. Little did they know that choosing to attend college in Hawaii, they would meet and fall in love. Just spending 1 day with them, I could see how much they care for each other. Sam likes to make Katelyn smile, or laugh. Sam is free-spirited and Katelyn is charming and beautiful. They also have an amazing family and group of friends. All day I was meeting them... all brought together for these incredible 2 people.

Jesse and I met Kate at her parent's house. It was so beautiful - even the Christmas tree was up with all the lights. Katelyn and her friends were getting ready and having fun.
They got married at St. John's Catholic Church in Cleveland. They had 19 Christmas trees!

St. John's church is so beautiful inside. Everywhere you look is breathtaking.
This photo is so cute!
We spent a little bit of time outside in downtown
I love this picture that Jesse took.
Since it was so cold, Katelyn's brother suggested that we go to their parents favorite bar to get a few pictures. It had a really cool tree all decorated with ornaments.
Their reception was at the courthouse. I think it was so ellegant. We took several pictures inside before the reception started. What a great decision to have it there! It was perfect.
Katelyn made this signature drink. She even made a little sign to put by the table.
"Sneed" a drink? "Sam"ple a "Kate"tini!
Bringing in the New Year
Congratulations Sam and Katelyn. We had a really great time with you. Enjoy the rest of your time in Costa Rica!
