Garrett & Caitlin Vaughan | June 28, 2014 | Photography by Tara Lilly Photography & Design
After meeting during their final semester at Virginia Tech, Garrett took Caitlin to dinner one snowy night and then to the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C for the first time where he proposed. The couple's wedding had a personal touch by having Garrett's father officiate the ceremony just as he was married by Garrett's grandfather. A mandolinist played the Appalachian Waltz for the ceremony processional. The black, white, and cream-schemed wedding was carried out through bridesmaid dresses, décor, and even the wedding cake, which featured two coconut layers and two chocolate raspberry layers all covered in buttercream frosting. Food stations kept guests full, with a mashed potato bar, sweet potato ham biscuits, prime rib and more. Caitlin knew she wanted her flowers to be all white, so she chose a mix of hydrangeas, roses, baby's breath, and peonies. Her favorite moment of the day was when Garrett surprised her with their first dance song "She's My Kind of Rain" by Tim McGraw, which happens to be her favorite song. She says it was a very sweet gesture that made her tear up.
