Caitlin + Timothy | Villa Montalvo | Saratoga Wedding Photographer

Caitlin & Timm’s wedding was one of those weddings where I wished I could be two people:  just as I was, the lucky photographer capturing all the love and beauty of their day and then also a guest!!!   These two were incredibly thoughtful about how they put together their wedding day experience for their friends and family.  From the personal notes that they wrote on the back of each guest’s escort card, to the handmade favors from the remnants of the wedding quilt Caitlin’s mother made, to a family style dinner served on the beautiful veranda of Villa Montalvo, to providing a both hometown brews from Michigan and sangria made from Caitlin’s family vineyard, to the heirloom blueberry pie recipe from Timm’s grandmother that graced the dessert table, these two had their guests experience in the forefront of their planning, and they made it truly special with all of their personal touches.

As Elisheva, wedding planner and designer extraordinaire described, they wanted to create a “homespun luxe-backyard picnic” feel to the event.  I think they succeeded!!!  Their guests had a great time, thoroughly enjoying themselves.  It was a wonderful event to photograph, and Caitlin & Timm’s sweet love for each other and their family and friends was inspiring.  Here are some favorites from the day, or check out more in their slideshow!
