Every once in a while, a wedding comes along that reminds me of rich, delicious cake, drizzled with creamy icing . . . decadent. The location is superb, every detail is thought of, every effort is made for the guests to feel greatly appreciated, and the bride and groom are glowing! This was one of those days.
Caitlin and Evan are beyond sweet, and their love for God is top in their lives. It was an honor to help make their day special for them! The affair took place at the gorgeous Silver Oaks Chateau.
Caitlin and her girls were so, so adorable in their robes as they got ready.
Evan was looking quite dapper himself.
I loved this moment when the bridesmaids got to see Caitlin dressed and ready for the first time.
She looked amazing.
The ceremony was about to begin . . . .
Usually, at the Chateau, the ceremony is held 90 degrees to the left, on a raised stage area. Caitlin, in her love for natural light, opted to hold it facing the windows. I couldn't agree with her decision more!
You may kiss the bride!
We snuck away to this cute little loft area to give them a few quiet moments together right after the ceremony.
We were blessed with the absolute perfect fall day. Temperatures were in the 60s, the leaf colors were in their prime, and the sun was shining.
Could they be a cuter couple?!
On to the reception!
These two went straight to their first dance after being announced.
The toasts were perfect, bringing many laughs and "aww"s.
You could tell the first dance with her father meant a lot.
Then the party began!
There was a small break for cake-cutting then the bouquet and garter tosses!
A great time was had by all as the afternoon came to a close!
Caitlin and Evan, thank you for having me there for to document this amazing day! You two are wonderful together, and it's truly been an honor. Congratulations on the beautiful beginning of your life as one! <3
