When I arrived at the Birch House to photograph Caitlin and Brian’s wedding, I was already feeling nostalgic and a little emotional. Not long ago, I made the same drive up the long lane to the magical home in the forest to celebrate my own marriage. There is something truly magical about this venue. The open air windows, the history of the home, it just has a “thing” about it.
Caitlin chose a perfect pleated pink skirt to wear with her white top, and it was perfection. It goes to prove, you don’t need to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on a dress to nail it. Brian’s outfit was simple and dashing. All of the flowers and flower crowns were made by Caitlin’s aunt and she also did the table decor with wood slats instead of table clothes. Genius.
The ceremony was so you unique, and I pretty much wept the entire ceremony. They had their family members and closest friends come up and speak about the couple and their journey together, and later the guests read the vows as a group and the couple repeated them back. So different, really amazing.
For this Sunday brunch weddings, guests were ushered into the house where they could pick out a vintage mug as their favor and fill it up with coffee and grab a donut. Grits, chicken and waffles, bacon and eggs were served by https://scratchfood.com/Scratch Catering. Mimosas and a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar were a perfect match for this brunch theme weddings.
