While working at a small Italian restaurant, Katie often shared opening shifts with her future husband, Zac. “He cooked amazing food and loved to go camping as much as I did,” says Katie. He would even make surprise trips to see her after she moved for college, eventually proposing on one of his visits. Not all of Zac’s family could attend the wedding, but, with a little help, they were still included in the event. “Our wedding planner coordinated a Skype session, so Zac’s family gathered at the fire hall in Michigan to watch our entire ceremony." Katie and Zac incorporated their love of the outdoors by adding a nontraditional twist to the ceremony: In place of a unity candle, the two recited their vows and then lit a small bonfire together. When the fire hit the curled wood shavings, however, the wind picked up, creating an unforgettable commotion: “In short, the fire burst to life, the wind pulled the flames into the air, along with my long veil, and everyone gasped in concern. Luckily, no veils were harmed, and we had amazing pictures.”
