A sweet backyard wedding! I got a bit teary eyed when I relived this wedding in the editing room.
The day started chilly then warmed up to the perfect temperature. The ceremony decor was in the finishing process when i arrived. Across the pond were rows and rows of white chairs under a large tree, a big beautiful tent, and a large beautiful home. Views like this make me warm inside.
The girls were downstairs getting ready and the boys hung out in the tent. The kids were running around the grounds dressed in vintage storybook attire before the ceremony started.
The ceremony.. oh the ceremony! When Kaitlyn walked down the isle, Garrett beamed! When she was finally given away by her father, Garrett held her tight. He also snuck in several temple/cheek/head/hand kisses. =) Thata boy. Kaitlyn surprised Garrett with an absolute beautiful song! Not a dry eye in sight. Even I had to hide behind the tree to wipe a few tears. When the first kiss as husband and wife finally came there was some teasing and laughter and a really nice kiss.
These two were a dream to photograph! The wedding party was so fun and sweet =). Most of them were folks that were near and dear to my heart! I have met a lot of the guests and party at past weddings… three are past brides and grooms and now great friends of mine.
The rest of the day was a blast. I stayed wayyyyy later than normal… I had so much fun dancing and mingling and photographing!
A shout out to the ones who decorated! Amazing job to you! It looked like a professional decorator came in!
Mary (a dear friend) put together the flowers!! The flowers were all grown in family backyards just for the wedding!!! Can you imagine being the lucky one to walk in a field of sunflowers!
And finally! Hair!! Look up Erin Wichman! I have photographed three events that featured her magnificent, whimsical, and detailed hair styles. She did everyone’s hair with grace and speed!
Thank you thank you for allowing me to be apart of this beautiful day!
