Real Wedding Wednesday: Caitlin and Zach

Meet today’s Bride, Caitlin, and her beautiful bridal party!

Caitlin met her hubby to be, Zach, on the dating app, Bumble!

They were married at the Silk Mill in Fredericksburg, VA in November.

They look like a prince and princess!

They chose navy as their main color and wanted to decorate with lots of greenery. I love the ladies’ bouquets!

And how cute are the couples’ pups, Henri and Scout?! They are ready for their parents to tie the knot!

Caitlin’s dad walked her down the aisle as she locked eyes with Zach.

The ceremony was framed by a gorgeous arch decked out in florals.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the room when Caitlin and Zach’s families got up for their family blessing. Such a sweet idea.

Then they became man and wife with a sweet kiss!

During cocktail hour, the room was transformed and the alter arch repurposed to decorate the sweetheart table!

I love their decor style!

From their first dance to their last, it was an unforgettable night. Congratulations Caitlin and Zach!


From the Bride:
What was your favorite detail of the day? “We did a family blessing during our ceremony where my parents and both sets of Zach’s parents encircled us and gave their blessing on our marriage together. SO MANY TEARS!”
What advice would you give to a bride to be? “Getting the major planning out of the way was so important for me. I had little to no major decisions to make leading up to the wedding. Also- my day-of wedding coordinator was the best decision I made. I did most of the overall planning, but I literally did not have to coordinate a thing during the actual day! She guided and directed down to the tee on the timeline we created, and we were ahead of schedule all day!”
