Caitlin and Dan were married on July 13th, with a ceremony at St. Thomas Aquinas in Derry and a reception at Searles Castle in Windham.
We wanted to feature this wedding particularly because the wedding planner who hired us is one of our favorites. Tracy Dapp and her crew from Inked Events are always a treat to work with. We wanted to thank them for making this wedding—and all of the weddings that they’ve worked with us to plan—run so smoothly. Tracy truly excels at helping couples express what matters most to them and we felt like Caitlin and Dan’s love story was captured in all the details of their wedding day. From the stunning florals to the shamrock details on their cupcakes, so much of their wedding day reflected their vision.
Caitlin and Dan’s Searles Castle Wedding
On the day of the wedding, we covered both the bride and groom as they got ready, with second shooter Bruce Preston hanging out with the guys to start the day. We knew that Caitlin and Dan had both worked so hard to prepare for this big day, and the anticipation of the culmination of their story up to that point was palpable. Caitlin looked so excited in all the images leading up to the ceremony.
St. Thomas Aquinas was an amazing backdrop for their ceremony, with its soaring ceilings and stunning stained glass windows. The wedding itself was very traditional, from Caitlin’s grand entrance as her father walked her down the aisle to the receiving line at the end of the ceremony. That’s something that you hardly see anymore, but it was fun to see the bride and groom as they greeted friends and family and celebrated together. After the ceremony, we did portraits with the bride, groom and wedding party.
The reception at the Searles Castle was nothing short of wonderful. From the very moment that Caitlin and Dan were introduced as husband and wife, every moment was filled with joy and smiles.
Dan & Caitlin, we want to with both of you all the best in your new lives together. Thank you for letting us be part of your celebration.
