A New Year’s Eve Wedding: Caitie & Matt

post filed in:

Wedding

 

Caitie & Matt just got married this past New Year’s Eve and their day could not have been more perfect!

As soon as we arrived, I could tell how much time and thoughtfulness Caitie had put into planning her wedding day. (And re-planning it a couple of times.) Every detail was beautiful, Blake and I are so grateful we got to be there to capture their wedding day. 🙂

 

Before this sneak peek though, the Top 5 Moments from Caitie & Matt’s Wedding day. A Watson Wedding tradition.

#5. I LOVED the cute shots we were able to get in the morning. Especially, with the Bridesmaids! Caitie found the cutest Winter Pjs, perfect for getting ready photos in the morning. 🙂

#4. I think one of my favorite moments from their reception however, was when I noticed a line of dancers making their way around the room, at the same time a giant circle open on the dance floor!

Even with only a handful of people, there was so much joy, talent and excitement to photograph! We couldn’t get enough of it. 🙂

#3. Honestly, I think we had the perfect Winter weather on New Year’s Eve. It’s such a small thing, but it makes such a big difference for Winter weddings! We had fresh snow, the sun was shinning AND it was 28 degrees.

A few hand warmers, fur coats and we were good to go for photos!

#2. Their Sparkler Exit. Truly, I just  l o v e  these! You’ll have to scroll to check it out. 😉

#1. I think my favorite moment though, was their first look. 🙂 Genuine, Joyful and truly Unforgettable. It was perfect… and their pup Louie made a quick appearance!

 

Caitie & Matt, truly, thank you so much for having us! We couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple and we’re really excited about this preview. 😀

Now grab a blanket and snuggle up. Your sneak peek is live!
