You may remember Kaitlyn & Brooks’ story from their engagement session earlier this fall! They first met at their little sisters’ dance class when they were just 10 years old, & now over a decade later, they’re finally husband & wife!! Saturday was the most BEAUTIFUL day getting to capture their fall wedding at one of my favorite venues, Bridlewood of Madison. From Kaitlyn & Brooks’ sweet first look to the unity tree they included in their ceremony that they’ll plant in the yard of their new home, there were so many moments that made this day so amazing.
I love how close Kaitlyn & Brooks are to their families, & how excited they all were to become one family joined together by this marriage! Both Kaitlyn & Brooks are super close with their parents & siblings, & it was a joy to see everyone come together to celebrate their big day! Kaitlyn even had both of her grandmothers walk down the aisle as “flower girls” — it was so sweet & special!!
If you’ve ever seen the classic 1980’s movie “Steel Magnolias”, you will recognize the significance of Brooks’ very unique groom’s cake!! Brooks watched “Steel Magnolias” with his mom often during his childhood, so she decided to surprise him with a replica of the groom’s cake from the film — and yes it was even red velvet!! It was absolutely hilarious!!
Kaitlyn & Brooks – your day was full of so much joy!! I hope these images will allow y’all to relive all of that joy for years & years to come. I’m so thankful I got to be your photographer!!
