Last weekend, I photographed Caitlin and Billy’s Atlantic City Country Club wedding in Northfield, NJ. Caitlin and Billy originally had a June 6, 2020 wedding date, but due to the pandemic, they were forced to reschedule their celebration to May 14, 2021 and it was worth the wait! Their romantic garden party wedding was filled with lots of sunshine, laughter and beautiful weather!
Caitlin and Billy first met at a dive bar in Houston where they were playing corn hole against each other. Such a small world as they are both originally east coasters living in Texas (she is from New Jersey, he is from Pennsylvania). It was love at first sight! Their first real date was at a small Mexican restaurant in Houston in August of 2014. Caitlin says she knew right away that Billy was the one, about five minutes after she met him, she told her friend “He’ll probably be my boyfriend”.
Engaged on 9/2/2018, the proposal from Caitlin: “We took a duel family vacation to Cape Cod following a wedding weekend in Boston. Staying on Lieutenant Island, with only one way to enter the island over a small bridge. Billy and I spent the day at the beach and on our way home, we got out of the car on the bridge and there was “Marry Me Cait” written out in seashells.” I was lucky enough to capture their engagement session in 2019 at Barnegat Lighthouse.
Caitlin and Billy’s Atlantic City Country Club wedding began in the on suite bridal suite for the ladies and the locker room for the gentlemen. My couple was married in Houston last May over a Zoom ceremony in a local church so the mood was very relaxed yet filled with excitement that Caitlin and Billy would finally have the wedding day they dreamed of. They had a gorgeous Spring day that had a neutral color palette filled with white flowers and greenery and they had perfect weather and the most refreshing Spring breeze! Once dressed, my couple had an emotional first look followed by sweet couple, bridal party and family portraits on the grounds of Atlantic City Country Club before their highly personal ceremony in the SkyGarden of ACCC.
Once they said “I do”, their indoor/outdoor reception welcomed my couple onto the dance floor with bag pipes and their speeches were emotional and sweet. Caitlin’s parents will never let her live it down that when they moved her to Houston, they told her not to fall in love!
Now that they’re married (again), their dream is to continue to travel the world, they love experiencing new places and new foods! Eventually they would like to have their own children and then to adopt.
