Everyone’s favorite baseball enthusiasts tie the knot! Caitlin and Christopher, law school students at the University of Virginia, held their wedding here in Raleigh where Caitlin’s family resides. They met at the University of Georgia, and in a weird, Twilight Zone spin on events, are good friends with one of the groomsmen at our last wedding in Asheville. Normally we only see repeat guests at weddings that come from referrals, but these two couples didn’t know each other until they met at the wedding of the groomsman, Beau, a few weeks ago. At that point Sarah called and said, “We met another one of your couples!” So we thought that was cool, and we shot Sarah’s wedding, and then as we’re rolling up to Caitlin and Christopher’s wedding, Geoff says, “That’s Beau!” and it was… and it was all very deja vu strangeness. I guess it just proves that our clients are cool and run in cool circles with other cool people who have equally awesome taste in photographs. ;)

Anyyyway, this wedding was a beautiful late morning wedding and we had a great time shooting it! I must say, it was one of the most active dance parties we have ever seen… especially for an afternoon reception. Also, it was definitely hands-down the most active group of people over 70 I have ever seen as well. The grandparents were totally jamming out. It was pretty amazing. Caitlin and Christopher are total sweethearts who are beautiful inside and out. :)

Caitlin’s grandmother made these little floral arrangements below in tiny watering cans for their wedding after-party at the house, and I just thought it was the cutest idea ever. It would make adorable centerpieces for a spring wedding outside. Way to go, grandma! Also, the above picture is one of my favorites of the day. :) It makes me smile!

Christopher is a sweetheart and had just the best, genuinely excited reaction upon seeing the lovely Caitlin. :)

It started raining during the ceremony, so we improvised and did the first half of their pictures inside. :)

Beau! Our mutual wedding client friend. :)

This was a very energetic exit… I feel like the noisemakers had something to do with that. ;) We hadn’t seen this type of exit before, and it was great! I kinda wanted a noisemaker, but it would’ve distracted me, so it’s probably for the best. Congratulations, Caitlin and Christopher! Best of luck in Virginia and please keep in touch! :D
