The story behind Kaitie and Kyle’s Oyster Harbors Wedding? Jump and I’ll Catch You.
Kaitie and Kyle have been friends since high school, each others prom dates, and even shared a brief romance before heading off to (the same) college. They graduated from Bentley together and stayed close friends. After Kaitie ended a long relationship, she confided in Kyle that she had just discovered she was pregnant. Brave Kaitie, with her traditional Irish Catholic upbringing, decided to go it alone and stepped beautifully into her role as a single mother to her son TK with her family’s love, support and blessings. As a pleasant surprise, through the ups and downs Kaitie and Kyle found themselves madly in love with each other. They bought a house, moved in together and made a home for themselves. TK has never known his life without Kyle (KY) and has to be the luckiest little boy for all the love and attention that Kyle showers on him…(not to mention the mischief and laughs). Boys need to stick together, but poor Kaitie is outnumbered with these two! Their story is so beautiful and such an inspiration, we so admire Kaitie and Kyle for their strength and bravery and for jumping in together and being there to catch each other and TK.
We’d also be remiss not mention a second person in Kaitie’s family that we are in awe of. Kaitie’s beautiful older sister and Maid Of Honor, Meghan. Meghan is a vivacious mother of three very energetic boys (JP, Connor, and Gavin ages 6, 4, and 2 respectively) and wife to Patrick. When she was pregnant with Gavin she was diagnosed with breast cancer and endured an aggressive treatment plan. Unfortunately, shortly before the wedding, they learned that the cancer had returned. Kaitie tells us that she is fighting back with a very hopeful clinical trial and everyone is staying positive and praying for Meghan’s health. Meghan is such an important part of Kaitie’s life and it’s easy to see why. She unselfishly tended to Kaitie’s every need on the wedding day. She battled 50 small buttons on Kaitie’s gown and got her to the church on time! Whew! She organized and wrangled the bridesmaids and her own three boys. She gave a beautiful toast in celebration of Kaitie and Kyle’s wedding day and she danced like no one was watching with her sister at the reception. Her energy was endless and I don’t know how she did it, all with a beautiful smile on her face. Meghan you are amazing, a shining star and you are in our thoughts and prayers.

The first time we met Kaitie and Kyle was for their engagement session. They are an “action-y” kind of pair so we did some funny jumping photos at the end of the shoot. We thought it only fitting that we should try an action shot at the wedding too. “Jump and I’ll Catch You” seemed appropriate. Here’s what they came up with, my favorite part is the ribbons on Kaitie’s dress. They are headed for a lifetime of love and family awesomeness and we couldn’t be happier for them! XOXO
