Katarina + Dacotah

The fun never ends with these two!

I knew as soon as Kat told me they wanted to do their engagement session at an arcade AND a picnic in the park that there would never be a dull moment with them! During their engagement session we wandered the streets of their town and ended up at a candy shop which was so much fun! We then headed to a park in town where they shared sushi and it was so fun. These two really thought of everything for their session and really infused it with their personalities and interests. I remember them telling me they were looking to get a dog soon to add to their family but they were waiting for the right one at the right moment.

Fast forward to their wedding day when we got to meet their sweet fur-baby, Porterhouse! Porterhouse got to be the ring bearer and walk down the aisle to his front row seat to watch mom and dad get married. Kat + Dacotah incorporated Filipino traditions into their wedding day by doing a veil ceremony, cord ceremony and coin ceremony. They then did their vows and before you knew it they were MARRIED! Then the real party began and let me tell you, it was a PARTY! They kicked off their reception with Late Night Talking by Harry Styles as the wedding party was announced! After dinner, speeches, and cake cutting, special dances started. They started off with Kat + Dacotah sharing their first dance together. Then it was Kat + Her dad’s turn to do their father daughter dance + let me tell you this was the most fun father daughter dance I have ever got to capture to date! They started off their dance with a sweet song and her dad seeming to be crying… then they BUSTED out into a series of dances that they had rehearsed. The entire venue was laughing, cheering, and enjoying the incredible performance in front of them. Once their dance was over the dance floor was open and packed soon after. We then ended the night with a sparkler exit! It was an absolute joy and blast celebrating Kat + Dacotah get married!

Enjoy some of my favorite moments from their special day!
