GORDON LODGE DOOR COUNTY WEDDING | KATHERINE & ARNAB / by Kelsy & Butch McCartney

Katherine and Arnab's wedding day was nothing short of amazing! It was an absolutely perfect early fall day in Door County, with bountiful sunshine and a crisp autumn breeze. They had friends and family visiting from around the globe to share in their wedding celebration, which was planned in large part by Katherine's Mom, Carol. She beautifully combined rich Indian-inspired hues of gold & red with teal accents to tie in the water tones of Door County's 300+ miles of shoreline. Arnab's parents traveled for 18 hours by plane to be a part of their celebration, and his Mom wore two stunning sarees. Vibrant, punchy florals by Helene at Flora and red bowties for the gentlemen laced color through every inch of their wedding day! Katherine paired her dress with classic Kate Spade heels and a custom-made necklace; she and Arnab were such a timeless bride and groom!! We were lucky to capture gorgeous portraits with the two of them and their families along the shore at Katherine's parents property in Ellison Bay. Their portrait time was so relaxing and joyful, we could have spent the entire day there with them! But, of course, a beautiful reception awaited them at Gordon Lodge! :)

Guests enjoyed cocktail hour with a view of Lake Michigan as the sun set while they shared hugs & laughter and enjoyed savory passed appetizers. Once the last drop of sunlight shined on the patio, heartfelt speeches and toasts spoke volumes to the genuine, caring personalities and giant hearts that Katherine and Arnab each have. Throughout dinner, loved ones took turns singing songs with the word 'love' in them to pull out Katherine & Arnab's smooches. :) And, finally, the new Mr & Mrs first dance was a choreographed number to Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors." With Katherine's bustled gown spinning around the dance floor, she was the belle of the ball while she & Arnab kicked off their party with their awesome band, Random Maxx

Katherine & Arnab, we couldn't be more thankful to have been your photographers! We're so happy for the two of you :)

Love, Kelsy & Butch
