The love that Caitlin & Luis have for one another can be seen so strongly when you're in their presence. It's as if everyone else drops away, and they are the only two around for miles. They each lived two separate paths that eventually came together, and now those paths will forever be side by side.
Caitlin & Luis were given a gorgeous day (on another day it was supposed to rain buckets). Their day was one in which every one of their guests came together to make the day happen perfectly. There's something incredibly special about weddings where everyone comes together to create the celebration space for the couple. There seems to be a deeper connection to the entire day.
They had a dear friend officiate, and other friends and family read during the ceremony. Following the ceremony, guests moved tables into the ceremony space to create the reception, setting the tables and laying out the chairs. And they had some of the most heartfelt speeches we had heard in a while from siblings and friends.
Personal touches are what make a wedding day 'yours'. Before the ceremony Caitlin & Luis toasted with their families with some tequila. I loved being there for those moments. During the cocktail hour Caitlin & Luis surprised their guests with a mariachi band. At some point Luis's Aunt began singing with the band, and afterwards coaxed Luis into dancing with her, which of course led to a few more people joining in. Without a doubt – the best cocktail hour I've been to!
And, of course, they found time to step away for a bit to take it all in. Those are some of my favorite moments of the day.
Congratulations, Caitlin & Luis. We loved celebrating with you, and wish you every happiness in this life.
