Kaitlyn and Phil met in college, and it was clear from the start they were meant for each other. This sweet couple put forth so much effort into having a beautiful and flawless wedding day, and it paid off! The entire day was perfect in every way and worthy of a magazine spread! With plenty of romance and elegance, this dreamy day was the perfect way to begin this couple’s new life together as husband and wife!

 

The big day started with Kailyn dressing with the girls, and the atmosphere was happy, lighthearted, and excited as Kaitlyn’s mother helped fasten her into her stunning mermaid gown. As her bridesmaids and then her father saw her for the first time in her dress, Kaitlyn struggled to contain her joyful tears which made for such a memorable moment! Phil’s men helped him prepare for his vows, cracking jokes and laughing to keep the mood from becoming too serious. The boys looked snappy in blue suits and bow ties, with white roses for boutonnieres. The ceremony, held at the same venue as the reception, Bellamere Winery, took place indoors by the glow of warm candlelight, creating a truly dreamy atmosphere. The vows were short, read by a longtime family friend, and the words were truly meaningful to this perfect pair. The excitement in the air was tangible as Kaitlyn and Phil were presented as husband and wife for the first time, and this cute couple couldn’t stop smiling as friends and family cheered them on.

 

Afterwards, guests enjoyed cocktails before the reception. While this was going on, I managed to sneak  some time with the newly-married pair and the wedding party for some photos, and it’s no secret that this is my favorite part! The nervousness of the vows over, it’s time for the bride and groom to simply enjoy their family and friends and bask in the joy of the day. The beautiful, green backdrop made for stunning photos. The reception hall was decorated beautifully, and Kaitlyn truly thought of everything! Guests had a blast taking photos at the photo booth and enjoying the elegant atmosphere. Speeches from family and friends proved just how loved these two are, and the guests danced the night away in celebration. We ended the evening with some romantic nighttime shots; it couldn’t have been more perfect!
