The Proposal:
Katie and Colton’s family were good friends for many years, but the couple themselves never met. After finally connecting, the pair hit it off immediately! Later that year, Colton and Katie took a leisurely walk on a golf course. When they got to the 15th hole, Colton shared heart-shaped notes with all the reasons he loved Katie. The last note read, “When you know. You know.” He immediately got down on one knee and proposed!

The Ceremony:
The couple wanted their luxe Arizona wedding to be a fun celebration of their new life together. “My Dad had spent the last 3-4 months in and out of the hospital,” said Katie. “It was a really tough time for him and our entire family. Seeing him waiting for me was one of those moments that will be engrained in my heart forever.” Katie’s family friend Larry married the couple on the lawn under the blue Arizona sky with all the moments captured by Ben & Kelly Photography.

The Reception:
One big party is the best way to describe Katie and Colton’s reception. Everyone had a blast and the food was incredibly prepared. “At the end of the night, the wedding planner told us it was time to leave, and we begged for 10 more minutes!” remarked Katie.
