September 3, 2019

Filed in: Weddings

Hey friends, and happy Tuesday! We are more than thrilled to be sharing yet another gorgeous wedding with you all here on the blog today! We’re in a little stretch with a whole bunch of weddings in a row, and we had the most amazing time celebrating with Lakyn and Dwight just three days ago!! We cannot believe Lakyn and Dwight’s big day has already come and gone! It feels like just yesterday that these two first inquired, and here we are- and these two are now husband and wife! So fun!!!

These two were married at the beautiful Westminster Presbyterian Church in Springfield, we swung by Washington Park Botanical Gardens for some beautiful wedding portraits, and they celebrated with all their favorite people at their Crowne Plaza reception, and it was truly the BEST day ever. Lakyn and Dwight have been so sweet and kind to work with from the moment they became a Caitlin & Luke Couple, and we are just so grateful we were the ones who got to be a part of the celebration!

Lakyn and Dwight, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being SO incredible! getting to be your photographers has been the biggest honor, and working with you both has been a complete dream! We love you both and wish you all the best as you kick off life together as a married couple… we cannot wait to see what life holds for you two! So much love, you guys- enjoy this post packed with our FAVORITES from your big day! (There are so many!!!)
