Real Wedding: Caitlin + Sean
Today we are looking back at this gorgeous wintry affair submitted by Sweet Julep Photography. Caitlin and Sean were wed at American Village on Jan. 9, 2015 with a beautiful ceremony in the chapel and reception in the barn. We love American Village for its picturesque moments across the entire venue. Kayci and Brittany with Sweet Julep Photographer asked Caitlin about the big day.
SJP: “Tell us about the proposal!”
Caitlin: “The proposal was perfect! It was a family trip and Sean had told me that his family had not taken family pictures since he was really young so he wanted to go to the lighthouse in Hilton Head and take some. The day beforehand, his dad had bought me a pretty sun dress ‘for pictures’ and Sean told me to get all dolled up because I would be in the pictures too. Sean set up a day at the nail salon for us to prep for pictures. Little did I know that while I was upstairs getting ready, he was downstairs practicing getting down on one knee. Around sunset, Sean and I climbed to the top of the lighthouse and he asked me to spend the rest of our lives together and I couldn’t have been more elated than I was in that moment!”
SJP: “What is your favorite memory from your day?”
Caitlin: “My absolute favorite memory from the day was getting to see Sean for the first time. Our relationship is very much like best friends so just being around him made the whirlwind of the day disappear instantly!”
SJP: “Tell us about the vision and style you had in mind for your wedding.”
Caitlin: “For our wedding I wanted the style to be very inviting! I loved the soft color palette and our ‘do it all girl’ Leigh Anne White could not have been more perfect! Along the way she was able to portray exactly what we wanted even I wasn’t sure how to express my opinion! I relied on Pinterest and magazines for a lot of my inspiration, then sent pictures to Leigh Anne and she made it our own!”
SJP: “What was the best decision you made during your planning process?”
Caitlin: “I think the decision that influenced our day the most was the location and date. The American Village gave both Sean and I the butterflies as we toured it! It has everything we wanted – the chapel, the barn, seperate suites to get ready and the people really made the day all about you! The American Village was perfect!!”
