In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I introduce to you the sweetest Irish couple I know- Caitlin & Ray!! These two had an incredible wedding day full of Irish traditions, a little luck, and a LOT of love.
When I first met Caitlin & Ray, I knew the luck of the Irish must have been on our side because we hit it off right away. Ray was very involved with the planning process. He was so supportive and his desire to ensure their wedding day was everything Caitlin wanted and more was beyond endearing. As for Caitlin- her heart is as big and beautiful as her smile. It’s crazy to think that we never met at CNU. Yes! These two are also CNU grads- GO CAPTAINS! 🙂
Caitlin & Ray got married in Lurray, VA at the Shenandoah Woods Pavillion. The venue was absolutely gorgeous. A fantastic rustic pavilion in the mountains overlooking a corn field was the perfect back drop for this October wedding. The venue came with so many cool elements- fire pits, a canoe that served as a beverage cooler, and an incredible vintage teal 1953 Chevrolet truck that just happened to match the couples wedding colors!! It was the perfect setting for their perfect day.
Now- a reception where the bride does an Irish stepdance with her friends just screams AWESOME. Right?!? Well it was nothing short of that. Everyone had an absolute blast. You could feel the fun, excitement, and happiness for miles. A few more of my favorites moments during the reception were the dueling bridesmaid toasts from the Maid and Matron of honor (if you’re a fan of the movie Bridesmaids- you HAVE to watch it!), the fun match stick game that was a tradition in Caitlin’s family, and an incredible surprise firework show courtesy of the best man- Ray’s dad.
