You’re going to flip over this wedding. The details, the absolutely stunning bride and groom. I absolutely adore the gray bridesmaid dresses mixed with the pop of color in their bouquets! Caitlyn + Sean had the best time on their wedding day, and you can see it all over their faces. They loved having their family and friends surrounding them– coming from 15 different states to be there on their wedding day! Caitlyn + Sean both went to CNU but live in Georgia now where Caitlyn is the head volleyball coach at Berry College.
Folks, we live in Hampton and there just aren’t many wedding venues in this town. Despite having quite a few venues within 30 minutes of us, we’re often traveling 1-4 hours to get to our venues! We don’t mind it one bit, but it’s just a little extra special when we have a wedding right down the street. It also came in handy when it rained during portrait time, as only a local would know the hidden location where we started photos!
Also, Caitlyn is the most patient and understanding bride ever. Twice I had to tell her there was a chance I would miss her wedding and send an associate in my place. I’ll share more on that in an upcoming blog post, but I threw out my back the week of her wedding, but I was there! I wore a back brace and had an assistant carry everything for me and brought in Emily as my second shooter (I normally shoot weddings solo!). Emily and I have shot many weddings together and she knows exactly what I’m going to do, how I shoot things, and matches her shooting style to mine perfectly. It was a fantastic day!
