It was the emails between Caitlin and Dave that had started their relationship in college. Now a few years later, last Saturday their relationship turned into a commitment before the Lord as they became husband and wife. This took place in the church Dave grew up in and the church his dad pastors. It is the church that Dave and his family would walk to on Sunday mornings. This is how I first saw Dave on their wedding day. Walking to the church, but this time to marry his bride!
As Dave’s dad gave the message on marriage he ended with the words “We are proud of you and we will be in your corner loving and supporting you two.” How amazing it must be as a parent to stand there before everyone and God and express your love for your child on their wedding day. It was powerful. Caitlin and Dave were surround by family and friends who fully love and support them.
Caitlin is loyal, faithful, and kind. Dave is gentle, caring, and a leader. Together their hearts are filled with love for the Lord and others. I’m so excited for them as God leads them on their new journey as husband and wife; first starting with a move to Arkansas together!
Caitlin and Dave thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding and capture your day! Your love for one another is sweet and your love for others is evident. Hope you are enjoying Jamaica!!! I must also thank Tina for second shooting with me! ENJOY!!
