Lima, Ohio | Grace Fellowship Church | Howard Johnson Hotel | Caytlin + Hank Wedding
the proposal | as told by Caytlin
We went on a week long vacation to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. He waited until two days before we were leaving and he got down on one knee in the cabin. He had gotten me up that morning and said he wanted me to see something because he had planned on taking me out to the boat dock behind our cabin but he saw there were other people out there so he chickened out and did it right there in the cabin.
If you have read my other wedding blogs recently you will notice a theme about this first part ;) The day of the wedding the first thing I did was snatch up my phone to see the latest hourly weather forecast...."oh boy" I thought! We are kicking off this years wedding season with 8 weddings in a row. Caytlin and Hank are my 3rd wedding out of that 8 stretch before we spread out the rest of this years weddings to a couple a month. Last weekend we had a double header and after studying my weather app it looked like Caytlin and Hank were on the path to have the opposite experience I had had both days last weekend. Last weekend it rained all day but cleared up for the perfect 2 hour window for the ceremony and pictures. This looked the opposite! It was going to be beautiful all day EXCEPT for that perfect little window I needed. But as we all know regardless of the weather a wedding must go on so I devised a plan to make the best of what the radar was telling me. I told Caytlin the new plan to take bridal portraits the second they walked out of the church while the guests lined up for bubbles, she was game and it went down without a hitch. Ahhhhh I love when things come together. In fact we were able to get everything knocked out with bridal portraits, bridal party, and family formals before we were were supposed to originally even start that part of the day! Sure enough as we finished up the rain blew in! WAY TO GO Caytlin and Hank's family and friends for hustling and making it happen <3
Bridal prep took place at Grace Fellowship Church. Her bridesmaids were dressed in sea foam green and coral. Caytlin wore an ballgown style gown with a sweetheart neckline, ruched bodice, with gorgeous jewel detail and a full tulle ruffled skirt. Her footwear was jeweled sandals and she wore her hair half up with a fingertip veil.
