Caitlin & Ben

A Real Wedding in Payson, Arizona


How They Met: Caitlin noticed Ben on the first day of Mesa Fire Connectors training. She remembers seeing a tall, very handsome man enter the room. Caitlin thought it was fate that they got paired together for the remainder of the program. Fast-forward years later, she said to him, "It was like the universe knew!" Ben finally admitted, "No Caitlin, I asked for you to get assigned to me." The Proposal: Caitlin and Ben were visiting Caitlin's family cabin, waking up at 5 a.m. to take a ride in the woods, where they spotted deer and elk, and walked through a beautiful meadow. Ben held Caitlin and said, "You make me so happy I want to marry you." She said, "I want to marry you too!" then thought, 'was that a question?' After he let go, she turned around and he was down on one knee! The Wedding: They got married at Chapparal Pines in Payson, Arizona. The theme was whimsical and woodsy with natural décor, candles, and fairy lights.
