I’ve never seen a bride and groom so entranced with each other. Katie and Caleb’s gallery is full of in-between moments where they’re laughing and getting totally lost in each other. They are both filled with such joy and love and their wedding day was no different.
They say rain on your wedding day is good luck…but it also stresses us wayyy out. Thankfully, with really awesome attitudes and only a few slight rain and drizzle intermissions, the day was PERFECT. I think by the reception people had even forgotten that it did start sprinkling on us during the end of the ceremony. The focus was completely on celebrating the new Bryson’s.
There were so many wonderful moments during the day but my favorite was their first look. Caleb was totally blown away by his bride!!! I loved seeing how enthusiastic he was about her dress. They chose to use that time to read their personal vows privately, a new tradition I hope other couples consider because it’s so intimate and really helps set the focus for the day before bringing in all of the people.
A huge part of Katie and Caleb’s day being so wonderful was their families. I absolutely LOVED working with both of their parents!!! They were so intent on making sure Katie and Caleb enjoyed their day and had everything they needed, all while making sure all of us vendors were appreciated and taken care of too. I’ve never been so complimented in my life! Not to mention they TORE up the dance floor!!!
I could go on and on about how special it was seeing Katie’s bridesmaids cry seeing her for the first time, the fun we had with the groomsmen, the toasts being some of the best I’ve ever heard, and so on, but I know you’re here for the photos!!! They do not disappoint!
Katie and Caleb, congratulations!!!! I am so incredibly happy for you. Thank you SO much for inviting me to be a part of your day. You have such a strong foundation for all of the adventures you have coming up!!! Love you!
