Catherine and Stephen’s Love story starts back in their teenage years, They met in the same youth group at church and quickly formed a friendship! All of their friends and family could see they were the perfect compliments and Catherine even admits “ I thought I would marry him a year before we ever started dating” Catherine is incredibly passionate, driven, and full of Joy, while Stephen is Calm, loving… and as everyone at the wedding repeated…He is STEADY! These two were so easy going from the first time I met them, and have the most amazing dedication to each other!
Their wedding day at James Monroe Highlands came together perfectly. All of the carefully thought out detail, love of their families, and a night of dancing, special guest, performances and ALL of the glowey sunset portraits! See their wedding day unfold below!
The atmosphere getting ready was so relaxed! Catherine and her girls put on their finishing touches of hair and makeup while watching the movie Bridesmaids… twice! Catherine didn’t show a hint of nerves until it came time to put on her dress….As she turned to do the big reveal with her best friends, she was overcome with emotion that this day was finally happening. You could see so clearly how meaningful her friendship with these women was and the anticipation of finally getting to see her groom!
After the Ceremony, Catherine and Stephen enjoyed a little time away from the crowds, snacking on appetizers, watching the sunset and enjoying the first few moments of married life! We got to explore there gorgeous venue and soak in the much needed sun!

Cheers to Mr. & Mrs. Walshak! and a HUGE thank you to the amazing team of vendors who helped bring their wedding to life!
