Mary Catherine and Matt were my first newlyweds of the 2018 spring season!! Mary Catherine is a director of creative marketing at Focus Features, and Matt is a news editor. They both are from Los Angeles, and I love that they chose to tie the knot here in our very own Lower Alabama (LA)!!
Originally, Mary Catherine and Matt wanted to see each other for the first time as she walked down the aisle. BUT, because of the timing of their wedding, they wouldn’t have had any pictures with natural lighting. Needless to say, they changed their decision and went with the first look. In the end, they were thankful they had this quiet moment between the two of them, and we ended up with some really great images!! Choosing to have a first look allowed them to get all of their portraits done pre – ceremony. We had plenty of time for portraits. We weren’t rushed at all, and we weren’t chasing the light. I’m so glad they decided to do a first look especially since we had such a beautiful day.
Jacqueline with Chic Weddings was their wedding planner, and she is seriously great!! I always love every opportunity I have to work with her, and she is amazing at coordinating and making the day run so smooth!!
One of my favorite things from their wedding was their exit. Mary Catherine and Matt rode away on a pedicab!! We see this a lot here in Mobile, and I think it is so fun!!! I love all the little wedding traditions we have here in our city!!
Mary Catherine and Matt, we are very happy for the two of you, and we wish you many days filled with love!! Your wedding day was perfect, and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Thank you for allowing us to take part of your special day!!
Thank you to all of the amazing vendors that made Mary Catherine + Matt’s wedding so special.
