Caitlin never emailed me in panic mode… she never showed stress or worry even while it poured during hair and makeup and she could see it through the window… she never even showed hesitation about getting her dress dirty. I was shocked and honored at the same time. It’s almost like she knew that if she just trusted me, she would still have beautiful pictures and I cannot express how amazing that feels on a wedding day!! Ray and Caitlin were amazing and their wedding day was an absolute blast. Family, friends and guests celebrated with them for hours and hours despite the weather and it was perfect!
Their pup Cooper was the ring bearer and one of their good friends officiated the ceremony. The rain cleared for about 5 minutes and we had a chance to get the two MAIN shots I really wanted (with the overlook and the vintage truck). And if their day wasn’t already awesome enough, then Caitlin’s Maid and Matron of honor toasted…. BRIDESMAIDS style. The whole room was dying of laughter.
And then of course there was the surprise finale… you can’t forget the FINALE! It was amazing! Ray and Caitlin heard the POPS happening outside of the venue and so they rushed to the edge of the pavilion and SURPRISE! Ray’s dad had a fireworks show for them!!! I scrambled and had just enough time to capture some of my FAVORITE fireworks shots to date!!
Before we left the house, Michael told me I should bring my rain boots and I’m so glad I did. I wore them ALL day…. AND they matched the bridesmaids dresses! I wish I could say I planned that! :) Michael and I felt so honored that we were the ones entrusted with capturing the memories of this day!! I’m so excited to share Ray and Caitlin’s big day with you!!
And ps. You may recognize a past KJ couple in these pictures!!! Michael and Laura, you two are just the best and such a joy to spend time with too!!! Love you guys!
