"I am so excited to have our wedding featured on the Little Black Book Blog! Style Me Pretty was my 'go to' site when planning our wedding!"

"I guess I'd have to say that a lot of the inspiration for my wedding stemmed from my Mother, my best friend. She passed away five years ago, but in the weeks leading up to her death, we were able to sit down and cut out pictures and discuss just what it would be like! I was actually extremely lucky to be able to spend so much time with her." - Caitlin (smp bride!)

Caitlin ~ we know your mom was right there with you ... whispering how lovely you were and how much she loves you {and probably had a huge smile on her face over your super-cute yellow shoes}!

Caitlin had a general idea of what she wanted ... but wasn't exactly sure how to pull together all her ideas. She did know a few things, though. She knew she wanted to walk down the aisle to "All I Want Is You" .....

She knew she wanted a happy, fun-filled day surrounded by her family and friends. She knew she wanted her wedding to have a modern vibe with traditional Jewish celebrations. But that was about it! ENTER her terrific wedding planner and designer, Shannon!  Caitlin says, "Our wedding would have never come to life without Shannon Lassen of Sublime Events!"

One of the very special touches in Caitlin and Dan's ceremony was incorporating her grandfather's prayer shawl in the chuppah.

Oh! Two more things Caitlin wanted?

1. She wanted to walk back down the aisle with Dan to "You & Me" playing!

2. She wanted CANDY. Lots and lots of candy!
