You may remember Stu and Katie from their engagement session. We were positively thrilled to be a part of this Mill Top wedding!
“Stu and I met while both doing a 5th year at Purdue in 2013. We knew who the other was before we met, but it took a while for us to actually meet personally. When we were finally at the same place at the same time, Stu finally worked up the courage to talk to me (after some liquid courage). His profound one-liner? “’Sup?” Somehow, it worked. Despite his lame attempt at a pick-up line, we both immediately felt the chemistry and agreed to go out the next night. After our first date, we both learned that we shared a certain kind of kookiness and humor that isn’t always easy to find. We became official very shortly after and the rest is history!”
“As our date was in early November, I knew I wanted a fall vibe – deep colors with black accents. I knew the ceremony would be taking place just after sunset so I wanted low lighting with a romantic, dark feeling. In lieu of a flower explosion, we opted for candles – down the aisle, for centerpieces, etc. That also helped set the mood. Stu sported a burgundy tux which mixed perfectly with the tree leaves that were just hanging by a thread at that point (I like to think they did that just for us). These colors matched perfectly with the dark wood at the Milltop.”
Stu and Katie had the perfect balance of serious and silly, respectful and quirky. Here’s a few of our favorites!
After we returned from portraits, we had to take advantage of the sunset on The Mill Top roof!
