Caitlin & Brian at the Ansley Golf Club

Caitlin and Brian chose to get married at the Ansley Golf Club, where Caitlin has spent many childhood summers swimming and eating chicken fingers by the pool (which they served as a late night snack for their guests!).

With a background in architecture, Caitlin chose a very structured and architectural dress. As you can see, it was absolutely stunning. 

The love these two have for each other, and their excitement about getting married was wonderful to witness. This might be the very best first look I've ever seen: 

They also included many personal touches throughout the day, including family photos, a custom monogram to tie everything together. 

There were many parts of the day that were totally classic, but with their own unique twist. For example, their ceremony was traditional, but the bride walked down the aisle with her father to the Indiana Jones theme song.

They did a flawless waltz as their first dance song...

but then chose to sabre champagne, instead of cutting a cake!

Thank you to Caitlin and Brian for having us as part of your wedding!
