Romantic. Playful. Sweet. Three words to describe the beautiful couple, Caitlin and Sam. They love to take long walks in nature, and relax outdoors with a glass of wine, a good book, or both! Their relationship is a romance straight out of a Nicholas Sparks book, and it is so inspiring to be in the presence of their love.
Arriving at Rustic Acres Farm, Barry and I step out of the car, all prepped and ready for the beautiful wedding that was ahead of us. Instantly, a sweet barn cat hovers around my legs and starts to purr. I knew it was going to be a great day. Apparently, Barry also enjoyed the company of our furry host, because every time I turned around, he was petting or talking to the cat (usually that’s my job!)
Stepping into the barn, we were *WOWED by the special touches in the décor, which suited Caitlin and Sam’s personalities perfectly! For example: book and teacup centerpieces, love bird cake toppers, and also favors that were skeleton key bottle openers (symbolizing their “lifelong love letter.”) Caitlin and Sam brought so much of themselves into these pieces of their wedding. It was simply beautiful.
Take a look to see what I mean…
Raise your hand if you love her shoes! We must have taken a zillion pictures of these shoes, from every angle, in every space of the room!
I was over the moon to see an image I took of Caitlin and Sam from their engagement session, sewn into the inside of Caitlin’s wedding purse!
I love the mirror images in this picture…
So maybe I indulge in portraits of a beautiful bride if I have a little bit of time…
This little guy was so excited to get the rings to his daddy!
I love how Sam just quietly soaks in his bride right after she joins him up front… that subtle and sweet smile…
Their vows were so original and sweet- they rhymed like a Doctor Seuss book! It went along perfectly with their book theme for the wedding!
How excited are they for their kiss?!
I don’t think I have ever had as much fun at a reception as I did watching the soul train dancing!
These shotgun shell boutonnieres deserve some attention!
