I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more in love couple than Cait and Reid. You may remember their engagement session from last fall, when I began to get to know these two. Being around them for even a few minutes makes it so apparent how much fun they have together. They have that easy going kind of love. The kind that comes from years of knowing another person, of really feeling comfortable and accepted in your core. It’s impossible not to laugh right along with them, even if you aren’t in on the joke. It’s a contagious kind of joy and I wish them years and years of being able to spread that joy together.
These two could not stop grinning all day long and the tears flowed the entire ceremony. After meeting in high school, this long awaited day was absolutely perfect. Love completely radiated from the two of them the entire day. The nervous anticipation before the ceremony. The tear filled moments as Reid saw his bride for the first time walking down the aisle. The happy (and almost constant) laughter carried through the wind in the orchard as we took pictures.
Rapid Creek Cidery was the perfect backdrop for this fun loving couple. I’m always excited for Rapid Creek Cidery weddings. The staff provides flawless service, the food is the best (like really, seriously, really, the best. Trust me.), and the spacious interior still feels so intimate. With winds blowing up to 20 mph, the outdoor ceremony was moved indoors at the last moment. You never would have known, with the excellent setup and effortless transition into the reception. So much of the success of this event was because of Soiree. Emily is the expert in her field and helped Cait and Reid plan the most perfect day in about 6 months. Her execution the day of was top notch. If you have been on the fence about hiring an event coordinator, go with Soiree.
