There’s just something about a traditional wedding that makes me smile.  Maybe it’s because growing up obsessed with weddings, I always imagined myself walking down the aisle in a grand cathedral, followed by a beautiful reception in a breathtaking ballroom.  It’s the fairytale all little girls dream of, no?  So when I first spotted this gorgeous day captured by Christy Tyler Photography, I knew we were in for a special treat.  A seriously stunning, planned to perfection by Big City Bride special treat bursting with beautiful blooms from Art Quest and more than enough pretty.  See it all in the full gallery.

From Christy Tyler Photography… Caitlin and Kyle had a beautiful vision for their wedding… it was classic and elegant, while at the same time managed to feel low-key and fun, just like themselves! They chose bright, cheerful colors for the day of yellow and grey and not a detail was overlooked. Everything was executed perfectly and put together by Kim from Big City Bride. After a touching ceremony at Holy Cross Parish, everybody headed over to the unbelievably beautiful reception venue, Cuneo Mansion & Gardens. There isn’t a bad spot for photos on the entire historic property. It was a perfect summer evening for cocktails on the patio, followed by a joyous celebration in the ballroom, complete with beautiful floral details by Art Quest, while Toast & Jam kept everybody moving on the dance floor all night!

But what really made the day was the obvious overwhelming amount of love between Caitlin and Kyle – who are just beautiful people inside and out. It was a joy to witness and be a part of their day!
