There’s just nothing better than a fun wedding day! We absolutely adored Caitlyn and Zack’s wedding because it was full of personality, unique touches, and style that we’re sure you’ll want to incorporate into your own big day. The Fendersons were married just a few months ago and we are so excited to show off their wedding day!

Their Story

Before we jump into the big day, we want to give you a quick history of how the Fendersons got together. Zack & Caitlyn met on the rowing team at UTC. The first time she saw Zack, Caitlyn immediately leaned over to her friend and told her she was going to date him. One year later, she had him locked in. They continued to date for 5 years before getting engaged.

Today, Zack and Caitlyn love having fun together. They’re both very involved in the fitness industry. Caitlyn works for Lululemon & CycleBar, while Zack is a trainer at Orange Theory (peep that grooms cake). They love Chattanooga and investing in the people they love here.

From Basic to Show Stopping

Even the most basic details of the wedding were AMAZING! At their wedding, Caitlyn and Zack made sure that every moment was full of thoughtful fun, just like they are. From a first look with all the groomsmen to a quick coffee date, their entire day was a celebration of love and life.

We All Scream For Ice Cream

Who says that wedding day has to be stressful? Take a cue from Caitlyn and cool off with a scoop or two of your favorite local ice cream. We love that she was unafraid to leave the venue and have some fun with her girls before she walked down the aisle. Don’t mind us as we’re drooling over here looking at that Clumpies ice cream shot with all of her bridesmaids!

Boys Will Be Boys

While the girls got their sweets, the boys brought the heat! We love when the groomsmen have fun together. The boys got ready at The Bode, a new apartment style accommodations option in the heart of downtown

A Fun First Look

After everyone is dressed and ready to go, the anticipation is at an all time high as we wait for the first look. The moment a groom sets his eyes on his bride is one of our favorite things about the wedding day! This time around, the whole wedding party was in for a treat as the groomsmen got to have a special moment with the Bride!

Pre Ceremony Coffee Date

After the first look, the Caitlyn & Zack made a quick trip to Peet’s coffee. We were sure these two were ready to party all night. Other than the caffeine, this also provided some time for the bride and groom to get away and spend some time together without the crowd.

We always love sweet moments like these!

Twirling Around Chattanooga

The lighting in this picture has us swooning!

Amazingly, this couple made it all the way around the city to capture some of the very best pictures featuring some special places in Chattanooga. It’s a good thing they had the creative and enjoyable Casey Yoshida as their photographer. Casey is easily one of the most brilliant people we’ve ever met and he is a pleasure to work with!

After touring the city, they settled in at their venue, Chattanooga Whiskey. for a few more pictures. Of course, we’re loving this veil shot with the rustic whiskey barrel background. Photos full of this much romance leave us weak at the knees.

The Wedding Ceremony

The chuppah (the traditional Jewish bridal canopy) was the perfect centerpiece for the ceremony for their circular set up. Every guest had a fantastic and unique view of all the happenings during the ceremony.

Delicious and Fun Decor

This cake was enchanting! Although it could stand alone as a decor piece, it was one of the best cakes we’ve ever tasted.

And what’s even better was this awesome groom’s cake that shows off Zack’s secret super human strength that comes from all of his time spent at Orange Theory.

The traditional Jewish Hagganiagila dance (you know, the chair dance) made for lots of fun– not only in the moment, but also in the pictures that last forever!

Check out the on brand koozies! The white background with grey script was the perfect mix of fun and fancy.

Forever with the Fendersons

All in all, the Fenderson wedding was golden. From all the small details to the huge amounts of fun, everything was lively and enjoyable. Their entire wedding felt like golden hour. Cheers to Caitlyn and Zack! We had so much fun at your wedding and are thankful you chose to include us! Here at Wildflower, we’re wishing you many years of love, life, and happiness!

Of course, their story doesn’t end after walking down the aisle. Zack & Caitlyn are making the most of life and starting a new adventure that is sure to be as fun as their wedding day. So, they’re moving to California! The transition has been fairly simple so far. They bought a house in two days and have already transferred their jobs. We can’t wait to see what happens next for this fun couple!
