Central NJ Backyard Micro Wedding | Caitlyn & Chris

Kinnelon, New Jersey


I feel so lucky to have been a part of Caitlyn and Chris’s intimate backyard wedding! These two officially tied the knot under a beautiful arch (that they built themselves!) with their closest family and friends (and sweet pup, Zoey) there to celebrate.

Caitlyn and Chris first met at Caitlyn’s first corporate job out of college – they were assigned seats next to each other during an onboarding training and became fast friends, and the rest is history!

A few years later, Chris, Caitlyn, and two of their friends were going to dinner in Jersey City to celebrate Chris’s 30th birthday. They were taking photos on the waterfront when Chris got down on one knee and popped the question! As Caitlyn put it, she “ugly cried through the entire thing.”

In true 2020 fashion, Chris and Caitlyn’s original plan for their destination wedding in Mexico was unfortunately postponed until December 2021, but they couldn’t wait any longer to become husband and wife. With their family and friends watching, and Caitlyn’s brother officiating, these two officially tied the knot in Chris’s parents’ backyard!

One of my favorite parts about working with Caitlyn was she had her own creative ideas for photos as well. Caitlyn bought biodegradable snow for us to use during portraits of her and Chris, and they came out seriously amazing.

Congratulations to Caitlyn and Chris, and cheers to the Daras!
