I had the absolute pleasure of getting the opportunity to photograph this beautiful wedding day! Chad and Katelyn have such sweet souls, and it was truly my pleasure to get to be there with them along their journey.
Here is their love story:
Chad & I met in Carthage, TX at Panola College. Chad was there on a baseball scholarship & I was there… well I don’t know why I was there, but I’m sure glad I was! On a snowy day of second semester that’s where it all began. Several of us were talking about having a snowball fight and Chad soon joined in & started picking on my roommate & I so we decided to wake him up the next morning by dumping a bucket of snow on him haha…. little did I know he was planning revenge! A few hours later I get a phone call from a random number saying, “it sure is gonna be hard sleeping tonight with no bed.” Superrrrr confused I go back to my dorm room & he LITERALLY stole my bed out of my room! Silly story but yes that’s actually how we met! We started dating on June 12 of 2015 & I thought that was the best day ever! Second year of Panola was soon to end and I planned on moving back home and attending Lamar University, assuming that Chad would go on to play baseball after Panola we pretty much had come to terms with the fact that we would most likely attend different colleges our last two years of school but that was okay, we were going to make it work. Surprising us both, Chad received a scholarship to Lamar University to play baseball & let me tell you, I totally say that was fate! Again, I thought that was the best day ever! He proposed on July 15 of 2017 & that was literally THE BEST DAY EVER! He wrote “Will you marry me” on a baseball & tossed it to me. It was perfect!!! From the day I met him I dreamt of becoming a McKinney one day & I can’t believe I’m lucky enough to get to call him mine for the rest of our lives! Let me just say, of all the days I thought were the “best,” December 29th of 2018 hands down took the cake! I can’t wait to make every day the best day with the love of my life by my side! ❤️
