Confession: Writing this little synopsis before wedding posts is always super hard for me. It is so difficult to adequately sum up my love, appreciation, and admiration for the couples that I work with- I use the backspace and delete button more often than I would like to admit– and it in turn takes me forever to complete. A good problem to have, I guess- when it means the couples you work with are that awesome
Well, thanks to Caitlin & Grant being who they are- this wedding synopsis is especially difficult for me to craft. These two are incredibly special to me- and to everyone they know and love. Caitlin & Grant are two of the coolest, most gracious, most wonderful people I know– separately. Then you put them together?! My goodness– it’s wonderful. If you can believe it, these two are even better together than they are apart.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Caitlin since middle school- we sat next to each other in math class in 6th grade… never my best subject, and certainly a bit snooze-worthy (I apologize to any math
nerds enthusiasts reading this), but Caitlin found a way to make everything FUN. I looked forward to math class because I knew Caitlin would crack me up– even through the painful algebra equations and monotone explanations from our teacher. Caitlin lights up a room- in every sense of the phrase.
Well, apparently during this time in our middle school lives (correct me if I’m wrong on the timing, Caitlin)– Caitlin met her future husband while vacationing with her family and friends in Bethany Beach. She didn’t know it then, but years later while vacationing at the same beach- they met again, sparks flew, and the rest is history. Grant proposed about a year later during Memorial Day weekend in the same spot where they first met.
Capturing Caitlin & Grant’s wedding day was such a tremendous honor- it was such a blessing to be able to be a part of something so truly special. I loved seeing how loved and admired these two are- it’s not hard to do.
Dear Mr. and Mrs. DiGioia, I couldn’t feel more blessed to not only have been at your wedding- but to have been the one you chose to capture it. Thank you thank you- for your sweet friendship, and for this fantastic honor. I can’t wait to follow along with your new adventures as MARRIED PEOPLE!
