Kaitlyn relaxed all morning and got ready with her bridal party at a nearby hotel.
How great are the groomsmen’s mismatching socks? So fun!
One of my favorite parts of Rancho Chiquita are the enormous opportunities for photos! There are tons of great spots, not to mention a verrrrryyyyy long aisle to the ceremony.
How lovely are these reception details? The couple’s love of wine is reflected everywhere.
Streamers on chiavaris are such a fun alternative to sashes! You don’t quite realize how many photos the newlywed chairs are in till you get your proofs. This is an excellent way to add a touch, without a huge financial investment.
I just love these black and white cake shots!
Then, things really got fun. I had to laugh when the garter got stuck on top of the market lighting. Not to worry, all the men created a quick human pyramid and easily got it down.
Kaitlyn and Ryan, I am honored to have been with you on your wedding day! It was a pleasure!
