I am so excited to share Caitlin and Matt's gorgeous September wedding with you. Do you remember that epic motorcycle engagement session on the shoreline in Winthrop, MA? Well, that was them! They were so much fun to work with at their engagement session so I knew that their wedding day was going to be amazing as well. They are both incredibly friendly, down to earth and high energy at the same time. I have a feeling their friends' first descriptor of them would be tons of fun. Always. They even planned a karaoke night after their rehearsal dinner for all wedding guests arriving early to attend. And I've personally seen Caitlin run "Thrift Shop" full out so you know it was a blast. What a great way to start off their wedding weekend!

Caitlin and Matt planned the perfect wedding day in Old Lyme, CT starting with a beautiful ceremony at the Old Saybrook Congregational Church. The entire space was filled with gorgeous natural light from the unseasonably warm September day. And I don't think there was a dry eye in the place when the couple said their vows. The reception was held at Camp Claire, a summer camp for kids which brought back so much nostalgia for those who went to sleepaway camp every summer like Caitlin and Matt had. I was excited to see all of the charming characteristics from the kayaks and canoes by the lake to the bunk bed cabins. {Yes, guests were given the option to spend the night in the cabins!} Caitlin and Matt added a ton of DIY details that totally perfected the camp feeling from the quotable log mini disk place settings to the jug centerpieces with tree branches holding pictures of the couple with their friends and family. Their guests absolutely loved the two food trucks, Lobster Craft and La Bodega and I have to say they added such a fun element to the day. Caitlin and Matt rocked out on the dance floor for their perfectly choreographed first dance which was a total mix of grace, romance and full-on fun, and then with their parents for mother-son, father-daughter, and mother-daughter dances - the last one turning totally crazy with guests invited up to dance to Greece's We Go Together. Ah-mazing. The dance floor that night was off the hook with Darik and the Funbags providing exactly what their name states. Seeing Caitlin and Matt sing from on top of the speakers totally made my night. I absolutely loved being a part of their big day filled with a great balance of romance and fun and I am so excited to share these photographs with you.
