Caitlyn + Eric wedding day at Villa Manresa

I can’t even begin to tell you how beautiful Caitlyn and Eric’s wedding was! Sometimes it feels like my couples come into my life for more than me photographing their wedding. And I truly love every ounce of what I do because of it! Caitlyn’s day was so detail oriented it had my heart as a creative, but this couple has my heart as friends! They are the sweetest most fun and very balanced couples! 

These two met shortly after the pandemic started on a dating app, and you guessed it, they shared covid, and quickly shared a space together as they decided to quarantine together. The time they spent during this isolation time gave them the foundation they needed to realize they did not want to spend any more time apart! With Caitlyn’s background in organization her day was easily the most organized weddings I’ve ever seen a bride create! It’s hard to be in charge of the amount of details that a wedding day involves and she made it look like magic! With Eric in the alcohol distribution field there was plenty of fun; and drinks, and drink koozies to be had! We also can’t forget about how the two kept the night rolling by becoming the bartenders from this cute mobile bar; The Hazymay! 

Getting ready at the gorgeous Seascape resort gave us the ocean as a romantic first look spot, and many outstanding getting ready images. As we moved over the venue, Villa Manresa, each guest is greeted with a breath taking view with the ocean in the distance, outstanding gardens and the perfect reception outdoor area! 

I hope you enjoy looking at these many favorite photos of mine from this special day!

Thanks to an amazing team to make this day possible!
