Hello lovely WB readers! Today on the blog we have a real wedding for you (I know, my favorite too!). The husband and wife team at Ruddock Photography captured Kattie + Matthew’s blush wedding at The Woodlands Resort beautifully. From Kattie’s stephanotis and rose bouquet by The Blooming Idea to her darling little entourage of flower girls, I know you will relish every detail of their wedding. But, more than that, they have a love story for the ages. 

How Did You Meet? My friends from church encouraged me to put a profile on Christian Mingle. It took me a while to communicate back, partly because I had a brand new little girl and partly I just had the free profile and couldn’t. I finally responded and we went on our first date to Chuy’s and then walked around LaCenterra in Cinco Ranch. We talked non-stop and I went home and told my mom that he was the man I think I am going to marry!
How did he pop the question? He had been a little uptight around the holidays and I was worried about what was going on. My friends encouraged me to be patient with him because he had a lot on his mind. I like to ring in the New Year at home with my daughter, just really  low-key. At midnight, on my couch, he asked me to marry him. We began 2013 engaged!

What was most important to you about your wedding? My wedding planning at first was a little chaotic. We really wanted it to be a good time for our friends and family. We wanted to incorporate my daughter and nieces so we had all our little flower girls. And we wanted to have good food! The Resort made that easy because they have really, really good food.

What special moment stands out for you on your wedding day? When I got to the altar and he looked and me and said, “You just look so pretty.” At that moment, I just felt so loved.
What advice do you have for brides who are planning their wedding today? Don’t worry about anything because once you make a decision on the location and the colors, everything else will fall into place. Don’t plan too far in advance because you will just change your mind. If you are a stressed out kind of person, the Resort made everything really, really easy.
