Caitlin & Nathan

Every person who took part in Caitlin & Nathan's wedding commented on what a truly special day it was. From the intimate ceremony to the incredible backdrop at Letterbox Farms, Ethan Harrison did such an incredible job of capturing the beauty of this day and the obvious love between these two. Caitlin looks flawlessly elegant in HB6640 styled with simple flowers tucked into her hair- the perfect look for her delightful rustic affair. Many congratulations, Caitlin & Nathan!! We wish you all the very best~    
Saja: How did you meet?

Caitlin: We met through mutual friends, at a party by a lake in Cold Spring NY.  We went out on our first date about a week later, on memorial day weekend, 3 years before our wedding.

Saja: How did he propose?

Caitlin: We had our first kiss on a trestle bridge in Rosendale, NY.  Two years later, we were back in Rosendale and Nathan took me on hike.  We found ourselves on top of a mountain looking down on that bridge, and that's when he asked me to marry him.
 Saja: What was your favorite part of the day?

Caitlin: The ceremony was really really amazing.  Just standing there with Nathan and seeing his face, and feeling all the love from friends and family around us.

Saja: Is there anything you can point out about the photos that we might not have noticed?

Caitlin: Our ceremony was created (and officiated) by our zen teacher Michael Stone.  There are a lot of Buddhist elements, for example the smoke purification.  Another really special thing was that some of our friends made vows to us, so we were really married by our community.

Saja: Which of the photos is your favorite? Why?

Caitlin: I really love a lot of them.  The one of our first kiss, and the one where Nathan and me are walking away from the ceremony and you can see how incredibly happy we are.
Saja: Where did the wedding take place? What made you choose there?

Caitlin: We had our wedding at Letterbox Farm.  It's a beautiful piece of land, with a killer sunset and views of the catskills, and meadows full of red winged blackbirds, barn swallows, and bobolinks.  Nathan is a gardener and I'm a farmer, and we really wanted our wedding to have a connection to the land.  Most of the food at our wedding was grown/raised on the farm.  It was also really special because Letterbox has never had a wedding there before! So we got to be creative and really figure it out from scratch, and it felt really special and unique.
Saja: Anything else you want to add?

Caitlin: Our photographer, Ethan Harrison, did such an amazing job, and was just a great person and presence.  I also want to point out that our wedding was truly a community collaboration, and so many things were gifted to us by friends: Most of the flowers were grown or foraged by our friend Alexis on her farm (Back 40 Farm in Washington CT), and were arranged by her and a posse of our friends.  We also bought some flowers from Diana Mae Flowers in Beacon.  My dear friend Cass made our rings, as well as the rest of the jewelry I was wearing - including the cool feather arm band.  Our friend Blake (of Arrowood Farm) brewed the beer (and grew the hops on his farm).  Most of the food was grown and raised at Letterbox Farm, and cooked by the amazingly talented Hannah Black and Carla Perez of Lil Deb's Oasis in Hudson.
