It was the night before the wedding when a small party of closest friends and family gathered into a special events room in the beautiful Marriott in San Juan, Puerto Rico. James and I had been warmly invited into this special time and we walked away feeling like we too had known Caitlyn & Eric their whole lives. The evening was full of beautiful memories shared by those they love most. Smiles were abundant and tears were many.
Caitlyn and Eric’s love story is as sweet as they come. Eric’s “discovery” of Caitlyn at a fast food joint started over half a decade ago. He knew right then and there- he had been smitten. Since then, they have weathered four years of dating while Eric attended West Point putting them into the famous 2% club.(those couples who have dated the solid four years of West Point) Caitlyn has both lovingly and loyaly stood by his side and has weathered the storms of dating and now being married to an Army man. The friendship these two have formed is remarkable. I have been SO blessed to walk beside them from their engagement until their wedding day. It truly makes my heart sing when I can form a friendship with my clients and feel like I’m just another guest on such a special day in their lives.
And of course, the location couldn’t have been sweeter as we all flew down to celebrate in beautiful Puerto Rico! Caitlyn & Eric, you both have a special place in my heart. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to not only photograph such a beautiful day in your lives, but become a part of your lives. We have loved meeting all of your family and friends, and hope that these photographs will help remind you of such a stunning and memorable day.
