It may not have been love at first sight for Katie and Max—as they so eloquently and hilariously put it in their respective vows—but we couldn’t help but fall hard for them within minutes of their perfect winter engagement session. Watching them snuggle on our command amid a dusting of light snow and the best of Skillet Diner’s brunch fare certainly didn’t hurt the cause.
Their summer wedding proved even dreamier, and as the lucky two witnesses to their breathtaking first look, we can honestly say it was hard to keep from weeping like babies at The Sight That Moved Us Beyond Real Words. Suffice it to say that it would be the first of many moments when time stood still, when all that existed were Katie and Max, trembling hands, tear-filled gazes, and hushed sweet somethings. It was like stepping into an otherworldly, spellbinding game universe—a universe for them, brought to life by them.
Katie + Max, thank you for letting us document such a magical time in your lives; the love was beyond palpable, the joy was positively infectious, the video-game-world table names were too cool for us boring grandmas to truly appreciate. We wish you a lifetime and then some of rad-as-hell game play, more mouthwatering meals than you can possibly fit in your bellies, and an endless supply of kitty snuggles as cozy and comforting as the sense of home you find in each other.
