Skipping the First Look: Seeing Each Other from the Altar Was Perfect for this Couple

Many couples decide to hold a first look before their actual wedding ceremony so they have time to take more photos. For Caitlin and Scott, it was important to delay their first sight of each other on their wedding day until the ceremony. "Walking down the aisle to see Scott for the first time is something I will never forget," says Caitlin. Their wedding day was an improbable 30 degrees - the days before and after were 60 degrees, but the morning of their wedding, sleet was pouring down. Thankfully, Bloom Lake Barn could accommodate the 300 guests, and the indoor ceremony went off without a hitch. The couple made sure all the children in attendance were included, so they had goodie bags ready for each kid and a Taylor Swift cake at the dessert bar. Their wedding day was the perfect celebration of two families coming together.
