Caylen and Sean are two of the sweetest people I’ve ever met! I have been friends with Caylen for many years, beginning in elementary school when we rode home from school together, celebrated birthdays, and danced to the Macarena. Sean, who is very outgoing and has a contagious smile, asked Caylen to marry him in 2017 and their love has only grown since then. I had the pleasure of meeting Sean last year when these two joined me for mini sessions (see a few from their session here) and it was obvious he is perfect for her! I was thrilled when Caylen emailed me a few months ago to ask if I would photograph their wedding sendoff party. They planned a private destination wedding in the Dominican Republic, but wanted to celebrate with their families and friends beforehand, and it was an awesome celebration. Their party was held at Hi-Wire Brewing in Durham, NC on a hot June day. The excitement for Sean and Caylen becoming husband and wife was on full display, as well as heartfelt emotions exchanged through hugs and well wishes. They officially became Mr. & Mrs. Sean McAlister on July 4th!! Congratulations to you both, and I wish you all the love and happiness!
Some of my favorite images from their sendoff celebration are below. Enjoy!
