You could see it in their eyes – Caitlyn and Daniel were ecstatic. Whenever their eyes locked on each other, their faces glowed and they could not stop beaming. This phenomenon lasted from their first look all the way to the very end of the day with their private sunset husband and wife portrait session.
Faith and family were clearly the foundation of this special event. At one point I had the incredible honor of hearing glorious singing – from the guys getting ready room of all places! Daniel and his groomsmen were a well-tuned choir, singing powerful hymns before the wedding celebration. Watching the bridesmaids and the bride’s mother, Karen, flood Caitlyn and her future with blessings through prayer before the first look was sweet and inspiring.
Caitlyn’s family and friends from her local church beamed with joy all day long. How perfect it was to have the ceremony on the grounds of a place that has been such a significant part of her life. And of course it was also wonderful to have all Daniel’s family and friends from Michigan come! (If you haven’t read Caitlyn and Daniel’s beautiful long-distance love story yet, you can find that here.) I’m pretty sure this awesome family brought the rain last week from Michigan. Supremely grateful for that! The entire day was a joy-filled celebration with Caitlyn and Daniel.
And we can’t forget the delightful donut display board! Family helped construct this masterpiece the week of the wedding and it was glorious. It was the most perfect work of art to help display their splendid cake. It was also the perfect representation of the absolute sweetness of this couple!
Caitlyn and Daniel, your day was beyond wonderful and I was so blessed to be a part of it. Thank you for letting me capture these precious memories. Much love to you both!!
