Kate & Alastair ~ Langdales Vineyard

January 8th had arrived, Kate was finally going to wear her dream dress, with her dream Jimmy Choo shoes… but most of all… she was going to be marrying her DREAM man!

We love our job so much, not only is it fun and creative and we’re introduced to amazing locations with amazing light.. and what makes it all even more divine.. we’re introduced to INCREDIBLE people. The kinds of people that are so beautiful from every letter on the keyboard they type, to every word spoken, every smile they deliver and every bit of love, kindness, support, excitement and joy they show! … Meet Kate and Alastair…. we LOVE them, and I’m sure you’ll love them too! … This is their wedding day!! <3
A special thanks to our awesome friend Kelly Shakespeare Photography for assisting Doug on the day!
