Pine Orchard Yacht Club || Branford, Ct
Catie and Frank have been together since 8TH GRADE!! I just love that!! I love when couples have known one another for basically more than half their lives! They know everything little thing about one another. They grew up together. Have gone through life’s mountains and valleys together. Have had the same friends together for those 10 plus years too! They are true best friends, and I love it so much.
Catie and Frank had THE MOST beautiful summer day for their wedding! No humidity and a nice breeze! It was a perfect setting for their ceremony at Pine Orchard ! Before their ceremony they had their first look at a family friend’s house across from the club! The house was gorgeous with an amazing garden area that we used for portraits with Catie, Frank and the bridal party. I kept seeing family and friends as such a huge theme for them that day. They let their loved ones watch their first look (which is always different for every couple), and the cheers they got during it were so stinken cute!! Being surrounded by a very loving family, and great friends (that they’ve had since they were kids!!) always makes the day even more special!!
You’ll probably notice a good amount of ceremony and reception details shown in the this post! Catie had the most beautiful details and it was so hard to narrow it down for this!! She had different tablecloths of different textures, patterns, and soft colors on each table, which made it look so comforting but elegant! They were complimented with scattered four pillared floral centerpieces and compote pedestal vases! Just so beautiful!!
Catie and Frank, thank you so much for letting me be the one to capture your day! I loved getting to know you two better and seeing your amazing day unfold!!
