Winter Wedding | Kaitlin & Jordan

FILED IN:

They had planned and anticipated this day for months now and it was finally here. They were finally getting ready to say “I do” to being the other’s constant companion for the rest of their lives. The day started early as Kaitlin and her bridesmaids laughed and chatted while getting their hair and makeup done at a nearby salon.Β It was a warm day for mid-December, almost 65 degrees. It was cloudy in the morning, but it looked as though the sun was going to peek through after all. Kaitlin woke early to prepare for the day, both mentally and physically. Today was her wedding day, and she was so excited.

Kaitlin and Jordan are laid back, easy going and down-to-earth. They love being with friends and family and surrounded themselves with those they cherish the most on their wedding day. The day was beautiful, simple and elegant.

 

Jordan arrived at the church around 2 o’clock and spent his afternoon surrounded by friends. He anxiously waited while Kaitlin got dressed downstairs and added the final touches to his ensemble…

 

 

I always love the groom’s details…

 

 

Downstairs, Kaitlin’s mother and bridesmaids helped her into her dress…

 

 

I think I said something stupid here and they were laughing at me πŸ™‚ That WILL happen on your wedding day if you hire me! I am usually very hands off in these getting ready moments, but sometimes things just slip out πŸ˜‰

 

 

Kaitlin wore so many beautiful pieces, including a headband, earrings and double layered veil…

 

 

Every one of her bridesmaids were so wonderful to work with and they took great care of Kaitlin on her day…

 

 

Waiting as her mother buttons her dress…

 

 

Adding the final touches…

 

 

Her Maid and Matron of Honor looked in awe at as their dear friend prepared to meet her future husband…

 

 

Kaitlin and Jordan decided to see each other before the ceremony, leaving plenty of time for beautiful sunlit photos… here Jordan embraces his soon to be wife as soon as he sees her…

 

 

They enjoyed tender and quiet moments with each other, just the two of them, before they said yes to forever…

 

 

Jordan asked me, “Am I allowed to kiss her?” To which I replied, “OF COURSE!” He didn’t need permission after that…

 

 

Kaitlin’s beauty is radiant and you could tell by the way Jordan looked at her that he thinks so too…

 

 

They cherished a few more snuggles and time alone before being joined by their wedding party…

 

 

They were surrounded by close friends and family, all anxious to see the beautiful couple tie the knot…

 

 

They walked inside to get warm (as it had gotten a bit chilly) and spent some time tucked away from arriving guests…

 

 

Kaitlin was beaming as she walked down to Jordan’s side…

 

 

They took hands and prayed…

 

 

And both promised to be by each other’s side forever…

 

 

Their beautiful cake was made by a family friend…

 

 

Kaitlin and Jordan entered the reception hall and cut their cake…

 

 

Officially Mr. and Mrs.!

 

 

The evening continued with heart-felt speeches from the best man…

 

 

…and the Maid and Matron of Honor…

 

 

Kaitlin and Jordan left in a tunnel full of loved ones and sparklers and drove off into the night as man and wife…

 

 

Kaitlin and Jordan, your wedding was nothing short of marvelous and I hope your marriage is even better. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day.

 

Happy Wednesday!
