Caitlin and Sam | Rustic Acres Farm Wedding

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…

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!
