From the moment that we pulled into the home on the water of Anna Maria Island, we were immediately greeted by both sides of the family. Katy’s father, Katy’s mother, John’s mother, and John. And as each one of them came over to introduce themselves to us, each of them had the biggest grin on their faces.
Today was the day.
And together, their families all worked relentlessly behind the scenes in preparation for the ceremony. Working together to make sure that the day came together perfectly for Katy and John. And even despite the families being both Katy and Johns, it was honestly hard to tell what “side” they belonged to. Because to them? It wasn’t about their child. It was about their children. Their daughter and their new son. Their son and their new daughter.
It was about gaining family and officially becoming one family together.
Just as it is for us, family is valued by Katy and John, so having an intimate ceremony surrounded by their parents and siblings?
It was the perfect start to the next chapter of their love story.
Katy and John, thank you so much for welcoming us in with open arms on this special day. From the moment that we met you two, we couldn’t stop saying just how loving, kind, and thoughtful you two are, and truly, your wedding day was no exception of that. It is so rare that a couple cares more about if everyone else around them is happy and getting what they want on their wedding day. But that is exactly how our Cooney Couples are. And Katy and John? Well…
They are no exception to that.
From making sure that your nieces and nephews were happy down to your parents in siblings, you hearts truly just shined through the entire day, and it was such a pleasure to be by your sides as you two began your legacy of love together. We are so excited for you and all that your future has in store. (If John’s siblings are indication… we have a feeling that lots of beautiful babies are definitely in your future!) But regardless of what your future holds, we know that the memories that you two make together will be full of so much joy and love.
Hugs and lots of love,
Shauna and Jordon
