29 Jan Formal Black and White Dixon Gallery and Gardens Wedding
Kaitlin and Eric are the kind of couple that is a dream to photograph. They can do everything. They are everything. Romantic. Funny. Sweet. Tender. Fun. Laughing. Crying. And they look great doing it! As you scroll down, you’ll see exactly what I mean.
This classic, formal Dixon wedding was SO FULL. It was absolutely full of love, full of style, and full of fun! I could talk about how amazing Kaitlin looked in her fitted gown with open back and oversized bow. I could talk about how classic and sleek the wedding party was, dressed all in formal black. I could talk about how the all-white flowers and greenery blended in with the natural backdrop of the Dixon Gardens.
But instead, I’ll talk about my favorite moment from their day. I would always rather photograph moments than things.
Formal Black and White Dixon Gallery and Gardens Wedding
Kaitlin had three First Looks on her wedding day! One with her dad, one with her brothers, and one with her groom. My favorite moment was when Eric actually started crying before he even turned around and saw Kaitlin! His love for her is so obvious. Or maybe it was when he started crying again when she walked down the isle toward him, even though they had already had their First Look hours ago.
Maybe my favorite moment was when Kaitlin and Eric had someone bring their sweet puppy, Charlie, to be included in portraits. Fur babies are part of the family, after all! Or maybe it was wandering the grounds of the Dixon. There is not a single bad place for photographs there, and it’s one of my favorite places to shoot! The flowers added a fun pop of color in some of the portraits that I absolutely love!
Or perhaps instead, my favorite moment was when Kaitlin and Eric sang a duet during their reception. Kaitlin has such a great voice, and Eric didn’t mind showing her off one bit! Speaking of the reception, it was chock full of fun moments, and we had a blast taking photos of all the action!
Okay, clearly the entire day was full of favorites for me, and I can’t choose just one! That doesn’t happen very often. Kaitlin and Eric, we completely enjoyed photographing all your moments, big and small! I hope you had a blast in Mexico, and I can’t wait to hear all about it! In the meantime, enjoy this little sneak peek of some of the special moments of your day.
