I had been looking forward to Caroline and James’ Clifton Inn wedding ever since they booked. I could not wait to work with Maureen at Just a Little Ditty and I knew this wedding would be absolutely breathtaking. I’ve been to the Clifton Inn so many times over the years but had never shot a wedding there. Every single wedding at the Clifton always ends up being amazing, especially the tent setup! Just wait until you see what they designed! I couldn’t stop photographing it.
But anyway, Caroline and James were another one of my couples this year that didn’t get to do an engagement session before the wedding. I ended up FaceTiming Caroline a week or two before her wedding though and it was SO fun connecting ahead of time! I could tell she was going to be super fun and easy to work with. And sure enough, they were both so wonderful! Their wedding morning started off with the girls hanging out in the cottage while I shot details and from there, the day was full of so many emotional and sweet moments!
I teared up a couple times throughout their day, the first being the daddy daughter first look. I adore when brides do this because they are always full of sweet tears. The set of photos below of Caroline’s dad’s reaction will probably make you cry too. It was beautiful!! And the second emotional moment that got me was Caroline and James’s first look. He also cried when he saw Caroline for the first time and the photo of him wiping away his tears is probably an all time favorite moment of mine.
Their day was all around stunning and I feel so blessed that I was their photographer!! Caroline and James, I know your wedding was already two months ago now but I am so glad I finally have your gorgeous images on my blog!!! Hope marriage is the best and that you’re still enjoying reliving your day through these photos!!! <3
