There is no greater honor to me than being hired by an event industry peer to capture their special day, so I was genuinely thrilled when I got the call about filming Katie & Kemmon’s big day. I’ve come to know and adore Katie throughout her years with the Crowne Plaza at Historic Union Station, and that’s where our coverage started, as the team from A Touch of Elegance helped get the couple ready for an emotional first meeting. In keeping with their balloon motif, Katie & Kemmon released two pairs of balloons into the sky, symbolizing their lost loved ones, before taking off for photos with Angel Canary.
After a beautiful ceremony at Our Lady of the Greenwood Catholic Church and a sweet visit to a memorial for Katie’s mother, everyone headed back to the Crowne Plaza’s Grand Hall for the reception, where a great team of vendor friends including Julie Acheson of Royal Creations, DJ Brian Whitis and Classic Cakes had a few surprises in store for their dear friends. Even I got into the act, surprising the couple with a same day edit that I had only decided to do earlier that day after being inspired by a huge window decal on Kemmon’s car as well as the balloon release.
