We had the pleasure of hosting two NC State sweethearts for their big day at Melrose Knitting Mill. Meet Caitlin & Forrest who tied the knot of June 1, 2019.
As we dive into their incredible wedding day, we want to start by highlighting the team who captured it all, Megan Kerns Photography.
Caitlin and her girls got ready at the Marriott Crabtree which made for some awesome wedding photos and fun. Hair and makeup were done by WINK Hair + Makeup.
The First Look
When the wedding party was ready, EcoStyle picked everyone up to bring them to Melrose Knitting Mill for pre-wedding photos. The bride and groom chose to do a first look and we loved the photos that came from it. A first look can be a great way to get rid of those pre-wedding jitters and to knock out some photos before the ceremony begins.
This group sure knew how to have a good time! They sipped signature cocktails, danced the night away, and enjoyed the delicious catering from Mulino Italian Kitchen & Bar and cake from Cinda’s Creative Cakes. Bunn DJ Company provided the music for the evening.
We loved the songs they chose for their first dances. If you are looking for a little inspiration for yourself, we have listed them below.
First Dance: Die a Happy Man – Thomas Rhett
Father/Daughter Dance: It Won’t Be Like This for Long – Darius Rucker
Mother/Son Dance: Never Alone – Lady Antebellum
Thank you, Caitlin and Forrest, for trusting us with your special day.
