Kathleen Hannan married James McKee this past weekend in Hilton Head at the Hilton Oceanfront Resort and shared it all with their baby boy, and many friends and family. Jonathan and James have been good friends since high school; over 10 years ago when I first met Jonathan, I also met James and all their "boys". These guys are a riot together- think: Superbad, Seinfeld, and The Hangover, seriously that's them! In college, James met his best friend, his future wife, Kat as well as a whole other set of amazing friends (I come to realize he and Kat are friends with everyone!) Together James and Kat have built an incredible relationship that everyone loves to celebrate! They first shared their love together in front of our cameras together for their Engagement and Family Session with their baby boy, Sullivan. I simply could not wait until their wedding day, not only to photograph them and their experience but to also join in celebration of their love!
They planned a beautiful oceanfront wedding designed around their lives together, personal style, love of music and the merging of friends and family from all over.
James and Kat, we can't thank you both enough for allowing us to be the one's to capture this all for you. We love you both!
Two of Kat's incredibly talented bridesmaids designed her classic hair style and makeup that paired so perfectly with her details.
While Kat enjoyed a peaceful time getting ready with her girls in a beautiful suite, James joined his boys who came straight from the beach (that's right, they wear Speedo's, too) to get ready and "prepare" for the day.
Kyle (the handsome man featured in the Speedo above) brought this amazing boombox that he scored from his life a few years back in Africa. It served as great entertainment throughout the weekend and wasn't a bad prop for images either.
One of my favorite moments of any wedding day is the time the bride and her father have together just before walking the aisle. It is an incredible memory of mine with my own dad on my wedding day. How precious are they together?
Their baby boy and incredible parents watched them as they shared their handwritten vows with so much joy.
... as did the random beach dwellers.
Jonathan said to James: "Show me what it feels like to be you right now". He showed him this- a happy, blessed man!
Stunning. Classic. Bride.
James and Kat's little man, Sully was sporting an attire just like his daddy's. He is such a precious little man.
Kat and James sang and moved happily together during their first dance together to Jesus, Etc by Wilco (totally gave me chills).
This is James and us "bringin' it in for the real thing". Not quite sure who grabbed my camera from me to get this one, but thank you!
James and Kat have friends and family all over the country, and they all converged for this weekend of celebration! The reception was true celebration complete with a serious dance party that brought all of us together (that's right, I was sans-camera and all dance for some time myself!)
Towards the end of the reception, when we all attempted to veto the end of the party, everyone began chanting "JAMES AND KAT! JAMES AND KAT!" What can we say? We love these two!
