Catherine and Reuben are MARRIED! Their Barnsley Resort Wedding was absolutely stunning in every way! Much greater than any detail, their day was filled with abounding love and sentiment. From the moment that Lex and I arrived, we knew that it was going to be a wonderful day. First of all, we walked into the bridal suite to find that Catherine had not one, but TWO stunning dresses. AND a cape veil!! We were in heaven from the very get go. Catherine even designed her reception gown with the help of Kimera of Kimera Design.
One of my favorite parts of the day was right after Catherine slipped into her gown. Her mother, Ann, began helping Catherine with her jewelry. As she did, she explained the significance of each piece that she was wearing. A bracelet that Catherine’s grandfather had given her grandmother, her mother’s pearls and earrings, and a gorgeous ring. The love in the room was palpable, and I am so grateful to have been there to capture it.
After anxiously awaiting his bride at the boxwood garden, Reuben and Catherine shared in a beautiful, emotion filled first look. The entire day, smiles never left their faces. Catherine and Reuben have the best, goofy, and down to earth relationship. They love those around them fiercely, and the adoration that they have for one another is unmatched.
An outpouring of love definitely went into their wedding day. Catherine’s mother hand made a thousand paper cranes for their reception, Catherine’s father made their escort card display, and Catherine and Reuben hand wrote thank you notes to each and every one of their guests. And as they welcomed their loved ones to their reception, they took the time to thank their incredible planner, Ellen, and all of their vendors – including us! We were so touched by their sentiment, and it was the greatest display of their hearts.
Mr. and Mrs. Weislogel, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing Lex and I to be witnesses to your love story. We could not be more grateful to have been the ones to capture your wedding day!
All our love,
Syd & Lex
