Don't forget these special items to be photographed first thing on your big day!

Kaitlin & Ryan’s wedding day started out calm and relaxed, and ended in one of the most fun parties I’ve seen in a while! Kaitlin started the day by getting ready at home with her bridesmaids and her pup, who couldn’t help but be part of the fun! She knew her fur parents were getting married and was by her mom’s side all morning!

What happens when a police officer and a nurse get married? You have a beautiful, emotional ceremony – and then an absolute rager of a reception! The newlyweds were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony overlooking the stunning views of Mountain Branch Golf Course. It was windy and a bit chilly but it was still a perfect spring day, complete with pretty blossoming trees! Once the reception started, the dance floor was packed all night long!

Loved the vibrant blue and bright white color palette of their details!

Their Pup was by Kaitlin’s side all morning!

The groom and groomsmen looked dapper in dark grey tuxes!

The sweetest bridesmaid reveal!!!

The ceremony overlooked the Mountain Branch Golf Course.

Ryan’s emotional reaction to seeing his beautiful bride brought everyone to tears.

Love the pops of red in their flowers!

Love these views from the top of the hill!

As soon as Kaitlin and Ryan walked into their reception, they got iced!

And then proceeded to have a beautiful, romantic first dance.

Ryan got the garter, and tossed to his buddy…

…then Kaitlin tossed the bouquet…and Grandma caught it perfectly!!!!

Grandma was pretty excited about the groomsman putting that garter on her!!

The dance floor was packed for the rest of the night!!!
