Katherine and Peter are the sweetest couple. They are fun and smart and clearly made for each other. But their first meeting didn’t leave them thinking that they were a match made in heaven.

Here’s what they wrote about how they met:

“Peter and Katherine met in their first year of law school through mutual friends at a trivia night at Durham’s Fullsteam Brewery. Although Katherine heard positive things about Peter through this group of friends, who seemed genuinely pleased that he’d be joining for the evening despite his questionable knowledge of trivia, she was not initially impressed with him. A lifelong southerner despite her notions to the contrary, she found Peter to be stereotypically “Connecticut”–quiet, snobby, and tragically unaware of how flashy his Fendi eyeglasses were. It gets worse; Peter does not remember Katherine from that evening, or indeed, from the first year of law school at all. Needless to say, it was not love (or even like) at first sight. ”

But of course, as the romantic comedy has taught us, everything was not as it seemed. Those Fendi glasses were actually knock-offs Peter had ordered from a sketchy Chinese website and Katherine turned out to be someone that he would never forget. Once they figured that out, their story went from friendship to a relationship to a beautiful wedding on the coast of Connecticut. We were so thrilled to join their amazing family and friends in celebrating this sweet couple. who really did turn out to be a match made in heaven.

Last weekend, we finished our wedding season in the best possible way! Chris and Caitlin (and their family and friends) are so much fun. And their winter wedding day was full of beautiful, simple touches.  Caitlin was a stunning bride. Her custom-made lace jacket and elegant Theia dress from the White Dress by the Shore were exquisite, and a fur topper added to the classic look. Timeless perfection!

Caitlin and her girls got ready in the gorgeous home of a family friend. It was such a treat to shoot in and around this beautiful home, and the owners could not have been more gracious! After a first look and some portraits, we headed to Ocean Beach for their ceremony, and then to Latitude 41 at the Mystic Seaport for their reception (with a stop at the Whale Tail on the way!). After enjoying a delicious dinner and some touching speeches, Chris and Caitlin and their family and friends danced the night away.  

Chris and Caitlin, we couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple or more beautiful wedding to end our season with! Cheers to a lifetime of happiness!

Last weekend, Claire and David proved that you don’t need sunny skies to have a beautiful wedding. This sweet couple was so happy to be getting married that the threat of a nor’easter wasn’t going to ruin anything. It was an amazing day, full of family and friends, happy tears, a bubble exit and lots of laughs. And when the rain did come, they just grabbed an umbrella!
