Chris & Caitlyn's Georgia Wedding
Last weekend, the union of two very special people took place in Georgia's Callaway Gardens and I feel so very lucky to have been a part of it. Chris and Caitlyn's gentle yet powerful love is rare; just listening to their family members and friends toast them at their wedding, I knew I wasn't the only one who noticed how deeply they are meant for one another. When two people with such big hearts find one another, they light up the room together.
The first time I met Chris and Caitlyn was when I photographed them two and a half years ago in Central Park, where they got engaged. I remember gasping as tears fell down Caitlyn's cheek when Chris got down on one knee in the middle of the crowded Bow Bridge, as people stopped at stared in awe. It was such a beautiful moment, one of the most moving proposals I've ever been asked to photograph. So, of course I was very excited when I was asked by Caitlyn, shortly after sharing their engagement photos with them, to photograph their wedding. Callaway Gardens is a nature-lover's dream come true, about an hour and a half outside of Atlanta. The breathtaking beauty surrounding these two lovebirds on their special day was a perfect match for two people so filled with their own beauty, inside and out.
