The Big Event

in All Posts

I’m back!  Well Meghann’s back! Did I fool anyone with that one? 🙂

Caitlin is still in blissful happiness on her honeymoon. I would like everyone to know that I have been in contact with her and she is happy as a clam enjoying the Napa Countryside.  While her and the new Husband tastes wine and enjoy couple massages I wanted to reflect all of the hard work Caitlin put into the big day.

Wow, I didn’t realize how many posts were on here about the Wedding! Hard to believe she managed all of the above while keeping us informed of healthy food choices and running.

All of the hard work and preparation did pay off. Caitlin was a beautiful bride and the wedding was one of the best I have ever attended.  The dress fit perfectly, looks like the decision to have the dress let out in the end really saved her some stress.


The bridesmaid’s dresses were all sleek and could truly be worn again.


Both parents proudly walked Caitlin down the aisle.


The ceremony was beautifully choreographed and went without interruption, minus a few tear from both the bride and groom.


No one could tell the last minute arbor decorations were once forgotten.


“All You Need is Loved” was the perfect song to first walk as Husband & Wife to.


The wedding location was beautiful and was so convenient to walk right from the ceremony to the reception.


Cocktail hour was a success with the yummy Signature Cocktails


And a fruit and cheese platter to nibble on.


Caitlin and her Husband were introduced to the Rocky Theme Song.


The First Dance debate ended up being a no brainer in the end when they took the floor to ‘their’ song.


The toasts given by both Best Men, Matron of Honor, and Maid of Honor made everyone cry.


The food was of course AMAZING!


The Father/Daughter Dance and Mother/Son Dance made for another round of sappy emotion.

The wedding hat was a hit at the reception.


The Cake was both beautiful and delicious.



Caitlin’s husband swooned the crowd as he went for the garter belt.


Groomsman Harry was successful in the grab.


Caitlin had to toss the bouquet three times until a fellow guest caught it.



No wedding is complete without a little dancing.


Food bloggers traveled near and far for the event.


Me, Caitlin and Jenna

The newleyweds went straight or the airport to start their honeymoon off right.


Best of luck to the new Mr. and Mrs.


I love you both! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
