And the award goes to Amanda and Dave for number of smiles on a wedding day! This fun-loving couple's day began in Glenville, NY at the beautiful Glen Sanders Mansion. With the help of YouTube, the groomsmen folded pocket squares while the girls toasted with champagne and helped Amanda into her stunning gown. Dad was all smiles and happy tears when he got a glimpse of Amanda during his "first look" before escorting Amanda down the aisle. The photo of Dave's reaction to seeing the bride speaks for itself! A simple ceremony was followed by a classic cocktail hour in the A/C (whats a crazy hot day!). The bridal party danced enthusiastically into the reception before lining up their "light-sabers" to welcome in the newlyweds in a truly unique manor! The bride and groom shared a sweet first dance, messy cake cutting and parent dances before showing off their funky dance moves with close friends and family. An amazing surprise fireworks display courtesy of the groom's parents closed out this great wedding in style!
"Caitlin was absolutely wonderful to work with. I happened to come across her table at a Bridal expo, Caitlin herself could not be there but I took her information and began researching. One Skype session later and David and I knew we had found our photographer. We didn’t meet face to face until the wedding day but it felt so natural having her around!
David and I are goofy, fun loving people and serious shots are not our thing. Caitlin did an incredible job at capturing our personalities in her photographs, I think we are laughing in almost every one! Her pictures of our reception stand out as they so wonderfully captured the fun and loving nature of our family and friends enjoying a good dance off and limbo competitions…she missed nothing!
A good friend of mine was able to look at all the photos before me as I was out of the country on my honeymoon. I got a text from her saying how amazed she was at what an incredible job Caitlin did by herself with minimal equipment, she wanted to know if we knew Caitlin or had just seriously lucked out…that’s how great she is!
Not only is she an incredible photographer but she is a wonderful person. She was smiling alongside us from start to finish. Thank you Caitlin for everything!
While David and I were doing our personal photos outside by the water there were two men setting up boxes on the dock. Caitlin told us they were setting up for an event the next morning so they left half the dock clean for us…we thought nothing of it. Come to find out my father-in-law had set up a surprise fireworks show for the end of the reception and Caitlin had been in on it! She stayed past the time we had booked her for in order to capture this wonderful moment of our day and every single person who has looked at the fireworks photos is in awe over how well they came out!"
