Katrina + Brett — With you is exactly where I’m supposed to be.

From very ear­ly on, Kat­ri­na and Brett told us that wed­ding videog­ra­phy was one of the most impor­tant ele­ments of their day and the keep­sake they were look­ing for­ward to the most. That didn’t nec­es­sar­i­ly change our approach, but it did spark much excite­ment going into their cel­e­bra­tion at the scenic Kurtz Orchards in Nia­gara on the Lake. They were excit­ed for us to lend our style and approach to their wed­ding day and we were excit­ed to tell their sto­ry and wan­der through the vine­yards at sun­set with them.

As is the case with all our NHL cou­ples, the hard­est part was get­ting to a meet­ing where we can hash out all our ideas. Because Kat­ri­na and Brett live in Wash­ing­ton dur­ing the hock­ey sea­son, we weren’t able to sit down with them until a cou­ple of weeks before the wed­ding day, but once we did, we were com­plete­ly cap­ti­vat­ed by the warm and inti­mate cel­e­bra­tion they were plan­ning.

A small cer­e­mo­ny under the trees behind the Grace­wood Estate fol­lowed by cock­tail drinks and san­gria in the Kurtz gar­dens and cul­mi­nat­ing in a family-style din­ner amongst the vines sound­ed like pure mag­ic, but it was all the intri­cate details that sealed the deal. The cus­tom Con­nollys neon sign was a sight and the fact that the cou­ple found a pho­to­graph they had tak­en with each of their guests and used them as place­hold­ers along with a per­son­al­ized note (seri­ous­ly!) was a tes­ta­ment to the endur­ing friend­ships they’ve built togeth­er.

With a nar­ra­tive span­ning their first moments as a cou­ple, reflec­tions on their con­stant­ly chang­ing lifestyle, their promis­es to each oth­er, and a beau­ti­ful con­tem­pla­tion of just how impor­tant each and every per­son in atten­dance is to Kat­ri­na and Brett, our goal was to cre­ate a piece that bal­ances both themes at hand — the cel­e­bra­tion of their union and the friends and fam­i­ly that have played a large role in their lives.
