A warm sunny day + Riverdale Manor in Lancaster = a lovely wedding! I love when a couple has their whole wedding day at the same location because the day just flows together so well! Cait and her girls got ready in the bridal suite while Brett and his guys put on their suits and fixed their ties in another room down the hall. Cait had her mom and sister help her with her dress and then had her bridesmaids come in to see her all ready. It was the sweetest moment! We did separate photos of the girls and guys and then Cait and Brett had a first look. They were overjoyed to see each other and had a few minutes alone to breath in the moment of the day.
The ceremony took place out under the pavilion and then everyone moved inside for the reception. While the guests enjoyed cocktail hour, we continued with photos. I had the pleasure of doing Cait & Brett's engagement photos a few months before and they were just as fun and willing to capture great photos as they had before! They are a stunning couple who shined with love for each other the whole day. My favorite part of the day had to be the dancing. This is hands down the best dancing reception I've gotten to capture! Almost everyone danced and was insanely good at it as well! Included in this favorite part is the groomsmen dance. Brett and his groomsmen did a choreographed dance to lead up to Brett taking the garter off of Cait! It was hilarious and awesome! It was an incredibly fun wedding to shoot.
P.S. Thanks to Katie Williamson for being an awesome second shooter with me for this one!
