Imagine my surprise when I called Andrea Taylor last week to talk about our free engagement shoot giveaway for the Something Old Something New event, and she told me that she recently shot Katie + Steve’s wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge!

Katie + Steve had a fun, romantic outdoor wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge complete with a ceremony by the lake and a reception with a live band, sunglasses for the guests, and a bright sparkler exit.

Katie and her bridesmaids got ready in a suite at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge.

Andrea got some beautiful portraits around the Ritz-Carlton Lodge grounds. There are so many options!

Katie got her veil on, and it was time for the ceremony!

Katie + Steve gave their guests sunglasses to play around with while they drank and danced!

Thanks to Andrea for sharing these photos from the Ritz-Carlton Lodge! I love all of the different location options for portraits and the ceremony and reception. And that could be you! Just go here to see how to win an engagement shoot on the Ritz-Carlton Lodge grounds and be featured on the blog!
