Caitlin & Brad. Reno Backyard Wedding.

The clouds looked like cotton candy in the sky as the guests took their seats. Situated on the pasture of Caitlin’s childhood home were chairs, bales of hay & vintage quilts for guests get cozy. Vintage doors & windows outlined the ceremony site & glass chandeliers & horseshoes dotted the property. It was the perfect setting for a beautiful wedding of two incredible people. Hand in hand, Caitlin was escorted down the aisle by her loving father as Brad stood at the end of the aisle simply beaming. They were all smiles & as they were pronounced husband & wife, Brad kissed Caitlin not one, not two- but three times! Needless to say, Caitlin & Brad were beyond thrilled to begin their lives together!

The thing that I love about shooting weddings is that every wedding is different. Another thing that I love is that every wedding is a perfect reflection of the couple-their style, their creativity, their vision. I loved, LOVED that their wedding was set on Caitlin’s parents home & that it was chalk-filled with amazing details. Caitlin’s dad has a vintage truck & a vintage Buick (both pale yellow!) that we were able to use in the photographs which was fabulous! They had a s’mores station, antique bottles & cans filled with brightly colored flowers, vintage suitcases, three wedding cakes & tons of fun. The night was spent dancing under a white tent as family & friends celebrated Caitlin & Brad’s new lives together.

Caitlin & Brad-thank you so much for choosing me to document your beautiful, beautiful wedding day! Your love for each other is so sweet to watch & it is without a doubt that you’ve found your perfect match in each other! Wishing you a lifetime of love & laughter…XOXO, marielle.

Why have one pair of wedding shoes when you can have TWO?!?!?

Quite the perfect setting for a wedding if you ask me!

Love this one of Brad seeing Caitlin for the first time…

Mr. & Mrs. Kroshus!


Caitlin…you are stunning!
