You may recall my enthusiasm for cinematography (here and here), and let me tell you SMP’ers – today is no different. Why? Because Loudbyte Cinematography is at it again. Capturing every sweet moment and moving speech. So, it’s time grab a few tissues because this summer affair is sure to bring a few happy tears to your eyes. Watch the touching tribute below!
From Loudbyte Cinematography… Katie is an event producer for one of Chicago’s top catering companies. In her free time she can be found running, in a yoga class or baking up a storm in the kitchen. She is best known for her chocolate chip banana bread, baklava, and delicious pies.
Austin is a consultant with a leading real estate advisory firm based in Chicago. In his free time, he can be found searching for unique and different ingredients for his next meal, trying a new bourbon, or, of course, hunting for a new bowtie.
Katie and Austin both attended Loyola University in Chicago. Shortly after Austin graduated, they met through mutual friends. One morning they saw each other on the train. A train ride lead to lunch and lunch lead to afternoon of playing hooky from work. Austin knew after that train ride he couldn’t let her go.
Katie and Austin set sail on May afternoon, where Austin holding on, asked Katie to spend the rest of her life with him. Following the boat ride, Austin had told Katie they had a romantic dinner planned. Little to her surprise Austin had invited both of their families for a delicious seafood celebration. Just towards the conclusion of dinner, both Katie and Austin’s closest friends walked in the door and surprised her. The day and evening were full of wonderful celebrations with the most important people in both of our lives. We could not ask for better families and friends. We are truly blessed.
