I’m so excited to feature this engagement from Dreaming Hollow Photography of Laramie! Catherine is a former Miss Wyoming, and her fiance, Clint, is just the most picture-perfect cowboy one could imagine… What a great set of images! But I’m going to quit yapping and share what Tessa of Dreaming Hollow has to say about these two…

When Clint and Catherine contacted us about their Engagement portraits, they mentioned right away that one of the angles of their love story that they wanted us to document was how they met in the soup kitchen of their church.  They asked if they could use our kitchen for part of the photo session.  Of course we said yes!

We asked Clint and Catherine if they would share a bit about their experience falling in love and how they met.  Here it is, in their words:

“Without God opening the doors and shining His light on their hearts, Clint and Catherine wouldn’t be where they are today: in each others arms. After numerous (secret) attempts by their mutual friends to set them up, Catherine’s dear friend and co-worker, Emily finally gave the situation to God and thanked Him for taking care of the rest. Soon after, Clint and Catherine locked eyes across the room at the High Plains Community Church soup kitchen, Sunday, 11/13/2011. They poured their hearts out to each other while serving pea salad and made plans to see each other again. The rest is history! Through Miss Wyoming experiences and adventures in Colorado and Wyoming, Clint and Catherine grew to be inseparable, despite their busy schedules. After a summer trip to Dallas to meet Catherine’s family, the deal was sealed. Clint proposed Labor Day weekend after a beautiful horseback ride in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The love, the moment, and the proposal couldn’t have been more perfect! With their friends and family by their sides, the couple plans to say, “I do” beneath Devil’s Tower on August 31, 2013.”

Thanks to Ardent Photography of Laramie for sharing this beautiful wedding with us… Here’s what Stephanie had to say about Emily & Brien’s touching Laramie wedding…

Emily and Brien are some of our very good friends. When they were choosing their wedding photographers we urged them not to go with Ardent just because we were friends, but to make sure they looked at a LOT of wedding photography and hire photographers whose work stopped them in their tracks. Deep down inside though Rick and I were crossing our fingers that this awesome couple would soon be Ardent clients. These two are fun, easy going, great friends and above all amazing Christians. They chose to have their ceremony at the gorgeous Laramie Valley Chapel. Instead of a first look, Emily chose not to “see” Brien, but instead pray with him before they walked down the aisle. They stood back to back, while throughout the room tears were flowing (and not just from the happy couple, lol). What started off as a very serious and emotional ceremony ended with the happy couple dancing down the aisle. The dancing shenanigans continued throughout the night as they moved on to their reception at the University of Wyoming Ballroom. We can honestly say this was one of the best receptions we have ever had the pleasure of being a part of. From Emily trying to assault Brien with wedding cake to their surprise first dance montage, their day was filled with unique memories and it was our pleasure to capture them on film. Many people helped with their big day including:

CEREMONY: Laramie Valley Chapel

RECEPTION: University of Wyoming Ballroom
