“My sister-in-law Katie, married her love, Chris. The day was perfect and quaint with less than 10 family members as guests. Their elopement was planned within a few short weeks and came together more beautifully than I could have imagined. Their decision to elope was easy; Katie has never been interested in a large wedding, and our father’s health was extremely important to both Katie & Chris…

…Our father was diagnosed with colon cancer and had recently completed his first round of radiation and chemotherapy treatments. With surgery right around the corner, Katie & Chris decided July 3rd was the perfect time to tie the knot, as our father would also be performing the ceremony. I’ve never seen Katie happier, and I thank God for the beautiful weather on a surprisingly cool day…

..I have to admit, I was thrilled that Katie & Chris let me have complete creative freedom over the design of the day. Of course, I employed Kristin from Rak-Desings to decorate and style the beautiful affair and I am so grateful to her for donating her family’s gorgeous land for the ceremony! I also asked Emily, from Emmy-Ray, to create the breathtaking florals that fit just right. Thanks to both Emily & Kristin for helping me make the day gorgeous!” – Cassandra Castaneda Photography
