Katie and Brad July 9 2011

The wedding ceremony and reception of Katie Harris and Brad Burt took place at the elegant and classy Davenport Country Club on a bright, sunny Saturday in July.

Dr. and Mrs. Brad Burt are a very photogenic and fun couple and it was great to play a part in creating memories for them.

The ceremony took place on the Country Club’s driving range, just a few steps away from the Club House Banquet Facility. It’s a beautiful setting for a ceremony, especially if you are a golfer!

We provided sound support for the ceremony so all in attendance could hear everything that took place, including Brad and Katie’s wedding vows.

Here I am looking for a shady place to set up the sound equipment for the ceremony.  I didn’t find one, but there was a nice breeze so it was OK.

The wedding party waits in a shady spot for the ceremony to begin:

Brad and Katie’s wedding cake from Olde Towne Bakery looked awesome displayed in Davenport Country Club’s lobby:

Katie and Brad’s Candy Bar featured sweet treats.  Everything in the display was either pink or brown, the couple’s wedding colors.  This is the kind of attention to detail that I really admire!

Davenport Country Club as always served up a fabulous meal and then Katie and Brad opened the dance floor by dancing to “When You Say Nothing At All” by Alison Krauss.  The couple took dancing lessons prior to their reception so they looked great on the dance floor!

Everyone had a fun time on the dance floor as the party went on into the night!
