April 27, 2017 Torpedo Factory Wedding | Caitlin + Lars
Caitlin and Lars’ Torpedo Factory wedding is the perfect way to kick off wedding season! These two are so sweet and easy-going, and I’m thrilled to have shared this important day with them.
Caitlin and Lars met three years ago when their mutual friend (and later, bridesmaid!) Carling arranged a happy hour to introduce them. According to Caitlin and Lars, it was “love at first description!” after Carling described Caitlin as someone who “really loves to eat” and Lars as “…slightly sarcastic, likes to binge watch Netflix.” Their first date slurping down ramen was a success, and after Lars returned from his then upcoming trip to El Salvador, they became inseparable, traveling across the globe, across the country and even–you guessed it–across the sofa during those Netflix binge sessions.
It was fitting then when Lars decided to give up his independence on the Fourth of July, 2016 and ask Caitlin to marry him. After making Caitlin hike five miles in a surprise rainstorm, Lars got down on one knee at the top of a mountain in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, where they celebrated with champagne. I love the mix of adventure and easygoing-ness that Caitlin and Lars have together.
The Torpedo Factory made a unique backdrop for Caitlin and Lars, perfectly suiting their fun but mellow wedding. Caitlin looked absolutely gorgeous and I loved her classy dress. Their whole day was a perfect reflection of what mattered to them–the people! Caitlin and Lars made a special effort to focus on family and friends, and it showed. The night was chock full of touching moments and fits of laughter. Congratulations, Caitlin and Lars! And especially to Lars, for finally finding his “real girl.”
