Mark and Katie | Allandale mansion wedding

Mark and Katie had such an amazing wedding at Kingsport’s Allandale Mansion in October.  They are both political science professors in Texas, but returned to Katie’s hometown for their wedding ceremony.  Guests came from all over the country to celebrate them.  When I asked Katie’s mom what she liked most about Mark, she told me that he adores Katie.  And that is sooooo true.  I didn’t get a chance to meet him until their wedding day, but as a photographer, I feel like I get a “behind the scenes” look at their relationship.  I love being able to capture those sweet glances at her and the joy that she obviously brings him. Take a look at these photos and see for yourself!  Mark and Katie chose to see each other before the ceremony began.  2017-02-13_00152017-02-13_00012017-02-13_0025
