Last July Caitlyn became Mrs Cook, (a country girl at heart),  the wedding of her dreams was to be at home in her parents backyard. She wanted everyone to be relaxed , enjoy good food, great country music and cold beer! And so it was!
Loving family, great friends, her beautiful horse Ladyhawk and a Cook waiting for her at the end of the isle :) what else could a country girl want!?
Take a look at these amazing pictures from our friends at T&S Hughes Photography , they are to die for!
