Today we are sharing another beautiful Springfield Manor wedding with Caty-Betz and Kyle! Caty-Betz is a nursing school friend of our Assistant Sarah so it was a ton of fun to see her as a bridesmaid at this wedding! Caty-Betz and Kyle met in college at Randolph Macon in Virginia. Kyle is from New Jersey and Caty-Betz is from Virginia, but they landed in the middle and recently bought a home on the Eastern Shore in Maryland.
I get this email from this bride that didn’t even hesitate to book us. She said we came highly recommended by one of her bridesmaids. Little did we know that our assistant Sarah and scheming to make sure Caty-Betz and Kyle asked us to be their wedding photographers. Honestly, it was a match made by Sarah… Sarah, you officially match made us haha.
Their wedding day was beautiful and had a ton of special details. Kyle gifted Caty-Betz a pair of beautiful earrings and she gifted him socks with their dogs face on them, a watch, cufflinks, and a tie clip that her dad made from gold from each of their families. Their adorable ring bearer, her nephew, carried a pillow filled with dirt from each of their homes in Virginia and New Jersey.
The two of them shared a sweet first look in the lavender fields in front of the manor house, followed by a sweet ceremony overlooking the mountains. Caty-Betz and Kyle “tied the knot” with a fisherman’s knot to seal the deal. The reception was indoors and gorgeous! A simple, classic ballroom reception with three head tables. Her father’s speech was sweet and welcomed all who traveled for the special day, which was nearly everyone in attendance. Everyone danced the night away, snacked on delicious cupcakes, and enjoyed the sweet late summer breeze. We bid them adieu with a fun sparkler exit and some sparkler writing! Off to Aruba they went!
Caty-Betz and Kyle, we don’t even know where to begin. Being alongside you, making timelines and shot lists and you all trusting us with your day was amazing. You empowered us to be creative, to photograph your day as an author writes a love story. We just got to do it through photography and not a book (well I guess we will do that when we make your Wedding album haha). Thanks again for choosing us!!
