kathryn of SNIPPET & INK is getting ready to marry the love of her life, ryan

so on a recent trip to napa i had the pleasure of photographing these sweeties

the day we spent on a st. helena vineyard was magical…the incredibly
talented LAURIE ARONS was our amazing stylist for the entire day…

kathryn & ryan are made for each other…

there was such tenderness & kindness between them….& when
they weren’t laughing they were kissing…seriously sweet….

kiss & tell….

kathryn remembers their 1st kiss…..

“We met for the first time in May 2006….he asked for my phone number and…….never called!!!
I did somehow end up with the hat he’d been wearing that night (there may have been a little bit
of drinking involved-enough said)….anyhow, 4 months later we randomly bumped into each other
again….his friend pointed me out to him & said ‘isn’t that the girl who took your hat?’ Ryan & I
talked all night…we danced & had a wonderful time…then he tried to kiss me on the dance floor…
I pulled back & said, “you have to buy me dinner first’….so a week later after a beautiful full day in
Memphis….site seeing…dinner…so, he’s dropping me off and making absolutely no attempt to kiss
me, no gesture of interest , nothing….so I looked at him & said ‘you can kiss me now’…and he did,
and the rest as they say is history….”

these two were made to kiss each other….

LAURIE ARONS made the most beautiful lunch for kathryn & ryan…go check
out her lovely blog for the menu & recipes….laurie is so talented & gracious….

the PERFECT ENDING was this perfect miniature wedding cake…

after cake, the love birds changed clothes & we headed into the vineyard….

it took incredible restraint for me to edit these photos….there were sooooo many good
ones…seriously i do not think kathryn can take a bad photo & ryan’s not bad either;)

the heart is a recent find of mine…i though was perfect for them…..

this is just the beautiful beginning….

i cannot wait for their wedding day…xoxo

    Elizabeth... these are absolutley stunning. I love them all, and I love that they shine through rather than the props being the stars. The venue itself looks incredibly gorgeous.

    THIS is what an engagement session should be - beautiful setting and a couple so in love it comes right through the photos. Loved seeing Kathryn's engagement pictures- I've followed her blog since before my own wedding almost 2 years ago. Congrats Kathryn!
