Military weddings are so romantic, and K&E’s day was no exception! The couple’s kindness and biggest smiles made their day even more beautiful. After a dreamy first look and elegant ceremony, Katherine & Eric entered their reception under a saber arch, a navy tradition! Thanks for letting us capture your day!
