Kaitlyn: everything!!! If I had to narrow it down, probably also the moment of pulling up in the limo, seeing everyone there, getting out of the limo to see my Dad and peeking around at Kyle from behind the wedding camper 🙂
Kyle: when I first saw Kaitlyn walking down the aisle
Tinder 😉 and our one mutual friend on the app encouraged the meet up!
In the realm of wedding planning, have fun! Find vendors you enjoy working with, because that is what you will remember. In life… also have fun! Don’t sweat the small stuff
Kyle: absolutely nothing Kaitlyn: trying to brainstorm and can’t think of anything!!!
We went out to dinner at the restaurant we had our first date at and Kyle proposed!
Kyle: favorite- food tasting, most stressful- narrowing down guest list. Kaitlyn: favorite- wedding dress shopping and cake tasting and all the small details! Stressful- also guest list, and also small details 🙂
We took kind of a slow and steady approach to wedding planning; we got engaged in December 2016 and got married in August 2018. We didn’t want to rush planning anything and just wanted to find the best fit with all vendors to be able to have the best day!
We just got back! We went to Costa Rica and it was absolutely perfect! We stayed at an all inclusive resort while also trying more adventurous activities like surfing and ziplining which was an excellent combination for a honeymoon!”Pura vida” -Kyle
Everything! Siobhan was excellent to work with leading up to our first meeting at our engagement session; we felt honored that she chose to be busier than she normally would be in August to photograph our wedding! When we met her at our engagement session we were both a little nervous, not used to being photographed… but Siobhan put us instantly at ease! We had so much fun that day and it just made us that much more excited for our wedding day, knowing we would get to hang out again! With her wedding experience and suggestions she helped me pinpoint exactly how I wanted the day to flow photography wise, and she showed up ready to rock and roll! Siobhan’s fun nature combined with her sense of professionalism just makes for the most perfect wedding photography experience we ever could have hoped for… and then you add on the bonus of the photo camper!!! It was just so much fun, and we both teared up a little when we saw that Siobhan and Geoff had posed for a picture in the camper to add to our guest book, that was really special to us. This whole rant is really only describing how excellent Maine Tinker is to work with, because the photos truly speak for themselves. They are absolutely breathtaking; they make us feel super glamorous but also make us feel exactly like ourselves! The quality of our photos combined with our wonderful experience with, and new friend in, Siobhan is one of our favorite parts of our wedding 🙂
