"Katie had something very particular in mind for her wedding day," says photographer Dezerae Jobe. The private barn where she hoped to hold their reception was full of trash and needed lots of work, but Katie and her friends and family fixed it up. There also wasn't a bridge to the rock where the ceremony was to take place - so they built one. From there, it was a simple matter of scavenging for chairs and vintage details that would tie the whole look together. In the end, the couple's personality shone through in a wedding that was entirely their own.
