Love stories are always heartwarming, but there’s something particularly special about college sweethearts who embark on a lifelong journey together. Meet Katie and Matthew, a couple whose love blossomed during their college years and continued to grow stronger with time. Their beautiful love story culminated in a scenic and dreamy Yacht Club wedding on Lake Ray Hubbard in Rockwall, Texas.
The two were engaged last year at The Arboretum in Dallas and were excited to tie the knot this spring. Katie and Matthew’s families originate from the East Coast and had not been together in awhile due to the pandemic. This gave the wedding an intentional New England garden-party feel to it. The day was exclusive to the couple’s closest friends and family.
