Matt + Kacie | Ryan

This glam winter wedding was everything you imagined and more! Matt, Kacie, their wedding party, family, and friends gathered on a windy evening to celebrate the coming together of these two beautiful souls! It may not have been Hawaii (where Matt and Kacie currently reside), but everything was absolute perfect at their romantic Eighteen Ninety nuptials! What I loved the most about capturing this wedding was how genuinely happy everyone was throughout the entire day. Everyone was there to make the day one to remember!  

"After both of us graduated from different colleges (Matt from the United States Military Academy in NY and Kacie from Furman University in SC), we commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the Army. We first met at the Aviation Army Basic Officers course at Fort Rucker, Alabama in the summer of 2014. We started just as friends. We went through survival school and flight school together too. Then, as we were both learning to fly helicopters for the Army, our friendship blossomed into more!"
"What I love most about Kacie is that she has the ability to light up the room with both her beauty and her ever-present cheerfulness; she's the perfect fit to my otherwise average looks and quiet demeanor. Kacie's fitness fanaticism has had a positive effect on my health as well; the downside (for her) of which is that she has to spend more time with me in our old age." - Matt
"I think Kacie was upset when I saw her for the first time on our wedding day because I didn't show a significant enough reaction. I always tell Kacie that she is beautiful enough to be a model. The truth is that when I saw her in her wedding dress, I didn't know how to react because I didn't conceive that she could be even more beautiful. She was though." - Matt

Swoon!!!!! Matt, you do have a super gorgeous wife! 

When asked what their favorite part of their wedding day was, they said....

"That's so hard! It was such a perfect day. But walking down the aisle and seeing all our friends and family, people we hadn't seen in years, or people who flew in from other continents to celebrate with us, was so amazing and humbling."
"I love how hard he works and the effort he puts into everything he does, whether it be something  in school, for work or especially in our relationship, doing everything he can to make me happy. He also always makes me laugh; we have so much fun with each other!" - Kacie

Matt and Kacie said that the best advice they received before getting married was...

"Getting into arguments isn't always bad. Sometimes it's better to talk it over and get it out, never hold it in and don't go to bed angry!"
