You may remember Caitlin and Robert from our Alexandria, Virginia engagement shoot this past Fall…as luck would have it we discovered that we are all from the Northern Virginia area, so it worked out to shoot their engagement photos when I went home to visit family last Fall. What I discovered is that they have been together for 6 years and knew it almost instantly when they met each other in the gym, that they were going to spend the rest of their lives with each other. They finally made it official last week when they walked down the aisle at the gorgeous St. Regis in Monarch Beach, California. This entire day would not have been possible without the expertise and flawless design of Laurie Davies with 5 Star Weddings and Events, whose team I adore working with, or without her beauty team, Design Visage.
Caitlin and Robert had an intimate ceremony out on the Grand Lawn with a harpist and cellist and then we ran down to the beach for some romantic formal photos and running around in the surf. Afterwards, they had cocktails and mentally prepared for their choreographed first dance. I think once that was over, they FINALLY were able to relax and party! Caitlin changed into a slinky, gorgeous white gown with a long slit and then she was ready to dance, which is what they did non-stop for the rest of the night. I have to thank Jillian Rose, my photo partner in crime, and their fabulous videography team, Plug Wedding Films, who we worked so well with that most people thought we all came together as one company:) I love meeting new fabulous vendors! It always makes the night that much more fun:)
Congratulations Caitlin and Robert! You guys are finally married! I wish you all the best in your new life together and when you begin your own family someday, I would be honored to photograph you when I come home to Virginia to visit!:)
