It’s always fun filming the wedding of a couple I’ve known for years. I met Paul at Texas A&M years ago, but it wasn’t until late 2014 that we reconnected. I was sitting in my church in Dallas when I saw him across the room and we made eye contact followed by amazing faces at each other for the next half hour. Since then, Katelyn and Paul have both become good friends to me and Rachel.
Now there are a few things you do need to know about this couple. First, they say that Rachel and I are “too hipster” for them, whatever that means. But if we are too hipster for them, then they are definitely too FUN for us. They travel, are super competitive with one another, they love board games, and are into Pokemon Go (which I would argue is important for any relationship). Rachel says we have a couple crush on them, and I would agree.
Katelyn and Paul also share an incredible love for Jesus, and they chose to make Him the center of their wedding day. He was present in their prayerful notes, sweet vows, worship during the ceremony, and exuberant reception celebration. Their love for the Lord is reflected in their love for each other.
Rachel and I are so thankful we were able to film their wedding, and even more thankful for their friendship. If you’re reading this guys, we need to go play more Pokemon Go soon.- Matt Johnson, Filmstrong Wedding Films
