I met Caitlin and Sean at the 2016 Bridal show. They booked with me in the summer of 2016 and then we shot their engagement session in the Fall of 2016. Their engagement session was held in down town Chattanooga Tennessee. We also drove up to sunset rock and shot some pretty epic portraits there as well. By far one of my favorite engagement sessions!
Fast forward to July 2017 which is when their wedding was. My second shooter and I loaded up the car Friday morning and hit the road to shoot Caitlin and Sean’s wedding in Indiana. I love a good road trip! I marked a few things off my personal bucket list on this weekend get away! On the way up we stopped at the Louisville, Kentucky horse track known as Church Hill Downs. It was SO COOL! I was in heaven. If you know me you know my love for horses. Caitlin and Sean got married in a little town outside of Indianapolis settled in the middle of corn fields. You know those fly over states Jason Aldean sings about… YUP! That’s where we were. It is normally a quiet little town but their wedding date was July 2nd which was 4th of July weekend. So the town as a hopping!
We arrived into town late Friday night and got up early Saturday morning to get that day started at their wedding venue The Barn At Kennedy Farm. It was BEAUTIFUL. Corn fields surrounded us with mature trees that gave amazing shade and set the scene just perfectly. A cool breeze swept through the air which was nice on a July day. Caitlin arrived a little later after we explored the venue and shot detail photos. She was just glowing when she got there. She gave her girls her gifts and then was swept upstairs to step into her fairy tale dress. SWOON! That dress was MADE FOR HER! Gorgeous. Later Sean arrived hung out for a little bit and then the bride and groom gifts were exchanged. It was beyond sweet. I was literally wiping tears from my eyes at the site of both gifts because of Caitlins and Sean’s reaction. Their love for each other is so special. The thought and time put into each other! I adore it. I do.
Caitlin and Sean did not have a first look. They kept it traditional and saw each other for the first time walking down the isle and it was perfect in my eyes. The bride and groom exchanged vows and had their first kiss beneath big oak trees tucked away at the back of the property. After the important part was over the dinner was served and reception fun began! Toasts were given, cake was cut and some sweet dance moves were made on that dance floor! At the end of the evening as they made their grand exit under sparklers the limo was pulling up and fireworks exploded into the night sky. It was truly an amazing day! I loved their wedding. A true fairy tale! Congrats Caitlin and Sean! I am so very happy for you.
