Pfister Wedding: Caitlin & Aaron!
Caitlin and Aaron’s Pfister wedding was the culmination of much planning from afar. Their home base being in San Fransisco was challenging enough, but throw in traveling for work and it makes sense that our first “meeting” was a conference call connecting three cities and two continents. Thankfully, that separation did nothing to diminish their long-time connection with each other or their almost instant connection with us. This was all par for the course for them. They met at a wedding in Minneapolis and their first 10 dates were in 10 different cities!
Caitlin and Aaron are a couple that is equally cerebral, communicative and fun – a rare combination that is tailor-made for our style of photography. They are secure in themselves and have no fear. For some, the idea of having the Brewers Racing Sausages chase them down the aisle at The Pfister would be an unthinkable combination. This eclectic juxtaposition only emboldened Caitlin and Aaron to know this was the perfect choice! Their quirky confidence extended to their guests as well, as evidenced by the friends that showed up to to this classy venue in formal suits dedicated to pop culture icons Darth Vader and Captain America, among others. Our goal at every wedding is to interpret the genuine experience, emotion and character that make the day unique. Caitlin, Aaron, and their whole crew made that a very easy and fun job!
Probably our biggest challenge of the day was harnessing the wacky spirit that Aaron embodies. “He loves being the center of attention and he makes me laugh. He’s sweet, fun and adventurous,” explained Caitlin.
We always ask what kind of advice our current brides can offer to our future brides. This is what Caitlin had to say:
“My best words of wisdom would be to just roll with it. Keep in mind that nothing that happens that day trumps that it is your wedding day! We took the time to enjoy all the little details and I’m so glad that we did. We enjoyed the photo booth, the doughnuts, looked at the table top decor, and raced the sausages. We had fun, and that was what we were trying to project onto our future.
It was great to see so much interaction between our families, so I guess words of wisdom might also include embracing when your photographer takes some photos of the moments you’re missing. We ended up with a couple shots of the bridal party that didn’t include us, very intentionally. Not being in the photo kind of gave us a moment to step back and breathe and see our people enjoy themselves.”
