Caitlyn and Zach are married and what an incredible day it was from start to finish! My day started with Zach at the Mirbeau Inn and Spa where he was getting ready.
Zach’s father and grandfather joined him to help – three generations on one special day:)
After leaving Mirbeau, I headed to Caitlyn’s home where the girls were having their hair and make-up done.
Caitlyn’s invitations and other day of stationary was made by Pink Polka Dot in Falmouth:)
These GORGEOUS bouquets, ended up being a preview of what was to come! This is my second wedding this season working with Beach Plum Floral and I have been blown away both times!
Caitlyn’s mom and sister helped her into her dress and details.
Zach told me that when he was writing his card he got a little choked up and when I was there to capture Caitlyn reading it, it did the same for her:)
Off to the church…
Zach, and his best man, waiting in the wings…
Caitlyn and her dad having a final quiet moment before the big doors opened…
I love this moment – the big walk up the isle is complete and now they are hand and hand to begin their ceremony and officially get married:)!
Catilyn’s younger sister did a reading – I was so impressed! At just 13 years old, she was so mature throughout the whole day, so well spoken and poised while reading and the life of the party for the reception:)!
In this job, I get to meet so many fabulous people and also see what a small world it really is! I just recently moved from North Attleboro to Rochester and when I made that move, everyone would say, “Rochester, NY?”! It appears that not may people realize that there is a Rochester, MA but Zach’s family knows there is:) This is where Zach grew up AND where his aunt (pictured on the left below:), raised her family too! Zach’s sister Abbey even had my daughter’s teacher when she went there! I just LOVE all the little connections you get to make in this field AND meeting other fabulous people from Rochester:)
After the church, we made a quick stop for an ocean view at a little spot that Caitlyn and Zach found and what a view it was! It was slightly complicated by the shadows from some trees, but still turned out beautifully:)
GAH!! These two, that view and that gorgeous bouquet – to die for!!
As you can see, we were up on a cliff and there were about a thousand steep stairs down:) We decided to just used the stairs for a few before moving on to the venue!
Although we didn’t go all the way to the sand – these stairs were so worth it from every angle!
When we arrived at Pinehills Pavilion, we did just a few more minutes of photos (out of the direct sun:) before meeting up with their families and then enjoying the last bit of cocktail hour! These girls, colors and flowers looked phenomenal against this greenery backdrop too!
I have included many more detail shots of the Pinehills Pavilion room, because I just couldn’t narrow it down – everything looked so spectacular!
There were even whoopie pies for there favors – YUM ands adorable!!
While I was inside capturing that gorgeous space, the guests were outside socializing and even playing some corn hole!
Then it was time for the reception to begin:)!
After the parent dances, the party kicked off in full swing:)
As the sun set, we snuck out the back door of the Pinehills Pavilion for just a few minutes of soft light photos:)
Caitlyn and Zach – Thank you SO much for choosing me to be a part of your day! You are both such amazing, sincere and kind people! I hope that we cross paths again soon (and we just might because I have been chatting with Zach’s aunt already:)!

What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Caitlyn – Seeing Zach after the large church doors opened & my sisters speech.
Zach – Seeing Caitlyn for the first time with the organ playing.
What was your favorite detail?
Caitlyn – All of the stunning floral arrangements & chandelier by Beach Plum Floral. Jillian and her team greatly exceeded our expectations!
Zach – All the details on the head farmers table. The flowers, the candles, the wooden name signs all came together and looked great.
Any advice for future brides/grooms?
Seems cliche but take everything in! Try to enjoy the details that you spent so much time planning.
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Zach and I had so much fun dancing that we actually missed the last shuttle back to the Mirabeau Hotel. The limo company was so great, they came back to get us.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
We wouldn’t change a thing!
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
The Greek Islands – Mykonos & Santorini
