Caitlin and Brad were married in the same church, Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church, that three previous generations of her family were wed in. Talk about a beautiful example and legacy to come alongside! Every element of this ceremony and celebration harkened a story, a piece of their relationship and element of their family history. One of my favorites was the prayer book that has been carried by every bride on Caitlin’s side of the family, as they walk toward their husband at the altar. Each woman then records her name and wedding date in the back cover. Such a sweet and wonderful family artifact and tradition!
The colors chosen, navy and yellow, are Caitlin’s favorite. Beyond that, the way they welcome guests into their relationship is the more important element. Brad took blue and yellow M&Ms to Caitlin on Valentines Day after her ballroom dancing competition in high school. That was also the day that Brad asked her on their first date. For that same reason, they also shared those sweet morsels with guests on their dessert table. Welcome to the Teplicky’s marriage day!!
