Callum and Kaitlin had a quaint fall New England wedding that was held at the rustic Webb Barn in Wethersfield, CT. Everything about this wedding was very elegant and classy. Callum was definitely the most well versed groom we’ve seen to date in regards to the manly arts of tying a tie and folding a handkerchief. He was very meticulous in his preparations as he got dressed up to meet his bride.
Callum and Kaitlin chose to do a first look before the wedding. Though many people choose against this option due to the long standing tradition of not seeing each other before the wedding, more and more couples are realizing how much more intimate this moment of seeing each other for the first time can be without hundreds of other people watching. It is also a great time saver in the wedding schedule as it frees up the bridal party and immediate family to have their photos done before the wedding instead of having to rush to do them in the already cluttered time frame between the ceremony and the reception.
The ceremony was set on the lawn between the barn and the garden nearby. Formalities aside, everyone then moved into the barn to begin the party! Corresponding with their fall theme, the barn was decorated with pumpkins, mums and caramel/candied apple name cards. They incorporated many personal elements into the evening including a slideshow of pictures from their childhood and several other photos of the couple hanging from the rafters as the guests entered the barn.
Callum’s mother added some additional intimacy to the night by teaching everyone a new dance during the reception that involved a lot of intermingling between the bride and groom and their guests. Everyone joined hands, went in circles, and rotated partners until everyone had the chance to spend some time with the bride and groom. It was a lot of fun and really exemplified the love and the unity in the room that night between this couple and their closest friends and family.
Thanks Callum and Kaitlin for choosing us to be a part of your wedding day. Your love for each other is beautiful and we hope that you share many more beautiful moments in your new life together as husband and wife!
