Caitlin & Luke were married in a spring wedding this May at the Market at Grelen in Somerset, VA. A quick scroll through their blog would tell you that clearly, these two make one beautiful couple — but I’ve also been lucky enough to get to know them over the past year and can tell you that they are so much more than that. In the weeks leading up to the big day, Caitlin was so gracious as we e-mailed endlessly to finalize all those little details. And when the big day arrived, calling for those infamous summer storms, that same joyful demeanor was still engrained in her… because after all, come rain or shine, these two would be married and a celebration would be had!
The storms eventually did roll through, forcing a last minute change in their ceremony plans. Not one guest complained as the timeline was pushed back which shows they surround themselves with the same wonderful presence that they bring to other’s lives.
Perhaps one of my favorite moments from their entire wedding day… maybe even more than the beautiful portraits and perfect sunset… was getting to hear the speeches after dinner from both friends and family alike. It provided another peek into the lives of these two amazing people and what an incredible journey they’ve come on to get to this exact point in time. There was so much love under that tent that I felt like it would burst at any moment and that feeling lingered the rest of the evening.
Caitlin & Luke, I can’t believe your wedding day has already come and gone; it feels like just yesterday I was meeting Chunk and Frank at your engagement session! I hope the Maldives are treating you well, although let’s be honest, there is absolutely no way they aren’t! Happy Honeymooning, you two!
A huge thank you to these vendors for making Caitlin & Luke’s wedding amazing! And to Erin Schrad Photography for being an awesome second shooter!
