From the very first time I met Caitlin, I knew she was going to be one of my very favorite brides ever. Don’t get me wrong, I love ALL of my brides… but every once in a while, I connect with one of them on an even deeper level. We sat in the coffee shop during our first meeting and chatted for hours about our shared love of dogs, tacos, Heidi Gibson (check out Caitlin’s engagement ring) and her amazing relationship with fiance, Joe. And when I met Joe during their engagement session in late 2016, I knew I was going to be in for a treat on their wedding day. These two are meant for each other and they are one of the sweetest, funniest, happiest couples I’ve ever met!
Their day started off with a sweet First Look at the William Aiken House. Joe’s reaction to seeing Caitlin as a bride was PRICELESS!! It was probably one of my favorite First Look reactions of all time!! Their three dogs – Tucker, Tucker, and Keegan (yup, they have two dogs named Tucker) – joined them for photos as well. Caitlin + Joe actually met while walking their dogs near their apartment. Joe was walking his dog, Tucker, and Caitlin was walking her dog, Tucker. Caitlin called for her pup and Joe casually asked her “is your dog named Tucker?” to which Caitlin replied “yes – why else would I call him that?” So, the pups naturally had to be there on the wedding day!!
Before long, Caitlin + Joe were reciting their vows in front of their family + friends. Caitlin danced up the aisle after being pronounced husband and wife… these two wear their emotions on their sleeve and you could see + feel their excitement all day (and night) long! After a seated dinner, Caitlin + Joe danced the night away and exited through a tunnel of sparklers at the end of the night. It was a day I’ll never forget and I feel extremely lucky to have been a part of it all. Here are some of my favorites from Caitlin + Joe’s gorgeous Charleston wedding at the William Aiken House…
