I have about 100 words floating in my head to describe Caitlin and Chris. Funny – that one if probably the most true (any engagement session where the guy references ‘Tommy Pickles’ is ok in my book!). Laid back? Casual? Sophisticated? They’re sort of this interesting conundrum. The epitome of a young married couple, their relationship is rich in family, friends and faith. But they’re also a modern newlywed couple that enjoy being active, teasing each other and the simple luxuries of their new lives together.
Since meeting in a college group at their church a few years ago, Chris knew he had to be with Caitlin. The best man’s speech actually summarized the beginning of their relationship perfectly: when Chris told his friends about meeting Caitlin, they only had one concern for him – would this take away time from Halo? Luckily, Caitlin joined right in, and they all knew she was a keeper.
So here we are, at a gorgeous pink and ivory wedding with Caitlin looking every bit as feminine and gorgeous as she dreamed when she was little, standing alongside her new husband – her prince charming. No doubt there are big shoes to fill for Chris to come in to Caitlin’s life; but, having gotten to know Chris over the past few months, I know he cherishes and respects Caitlin, and she’ll be perfectly loved :)

No seriously. Lee Forrest KILLED the floral on this wedding. Awesomesauce.
Oh dear sweet Caitlin – you looked the most amazing I have ever seen you. Ever.
I know everyone’s thinking it, but seriously, Caitlin, your boobs look amazing in this dress.
Now my blog is probably going to end up on 3000 spam sites because I said the word “boobs”.
Pretty much best formal family photo ever.
The inside of Saint Andrews is glorious. My dream church to shoot.
So I turn around to check on Chris, and all the bridesmaids had broken “formation” and piled up to see Caitlin walk down the aisle. Best aisle moment.
Chris got stuck. Wish I had a better story for this picture, but that’s about it :)
Dear John Michael Catering – the food: ridiculously good. Best wedding food ever. We still talk about this killer Mashed Potato Bar. No joke.
Caitlin’s dance with her dad was so sweet! Can you see her little tear?
