All Saints Chapel | Raleigh, NC | April 23rd, 2016
When we had our first meeting a year ago with Will and Kaitlyn, I asked them what the theme of their wedding would be. Without hesitation, Will said the theme would be just “AWESOME!” and boy, he didn’t lie!!
Kaitlyn and Will had an awesome wedding for sure: complete with a stress-free getting-ready morning, a sweet ceremony, yummy food, and a fun reception! The day was calling for thunderstorms – but we were blessed to have it downpour during the ceremony only, and could shoot the rest of the photographs outside, as planned!
I really enjoyed hanging with the girls getting ready that morning. Kaitlyn had a good group of girls, and they lounged around getting their hair and makeup done. After an eventful Uber ride (he was taking us to the WRONG church, oops!) Kaitlyn put her dress on and it was a quiet time alone with her mom.
Will is outgoing, full of life, and a big personality – but as he saw Kaitlyn walking down the aisle, Will’s best man Chris nudged his arm as Will’s eyes were filling up with tears. It was such a special moment!!
The reception was SO FUN! They treated their guests to a dinner, an open bar, cake, tons of dancing, and even free Uber rides for their guests. Kaitlyn and Will were SO thoughtful towards everyone who attended! Phillip and I LOVED seeing their guests have a great time on the dancefloor, and the floor even BOUNCED along as they danced!!
After a long evening of celebrating, Will and Kaitlyn ran through a candle-lit exit, and a rickshaw came to pick them up. As they rode off into downtown Raleigh, they were all smiles!!
We LOVED being a part of this “awesome” day…we hope you guys enjoy this little peek into our day with Kaitlyn and Will!
