THIS WEDDING! AH!
I was connected with this couple through my friend and wedding desinger, Jill Jenkins (Elle Ellinghaus Designs). I was immediately excited to book a real wedding with her, as our work history included a STUNNING styled shoot which will soon be featured via The Knot. She does great work, so I was quick to jump in when she asked if I was available for Michael and Kristen’s big day.
I met the two during their engagement session, but they were so incredibly sweet, it was hard not to love them! The pair are very stylish and their sweet nature showed in their wedding planning. The event was super guest friendly with lots to do, topped off with the pairing of two lovely people. Did I mention it was gorgeous?!
Kristen had two gorgeous tea length dresses for the day. She wore one during the ceremony and cocktail hour, then changed into her second dress for the reception. Both were classic and elegant, and she looked stunning.
I absolutely adored these bouquets by Connie of Violet’s Florist. She also provided flowers for Blissfully Bohemian!
Kristen’s headpiece was one of my favorite details! It was a head band with all the elegance of a veil. #Swoontastic
Michael had colored shoe laces matching his outfit at our engagement shoot. I was so glad he brought the same charm on wedding day!
Michael specifically requested a few groomsmen photos at the graveyard on site at Belmont Manor. These are perfect for Halloween week, and I think they turned out pretty cool. Great job, Sharron!
Did I already say “swoontastic?”
As always, Jill did a fabulous job of creating a beautiful space. I just love her eye!
Guests were provided with lots of entertainment! From a live band to yard games, there was a lot to do.
Mom and Dad asked me to take this photo. I LOVE when families are having fun, even if they break the bank to do so! ;)
Michael and Kristen also provided attendees with a Polaroid photo booth and an on site caricature artist. Both were much enjoyed!
Kristen & Michael,
I have to say this is probably one of my favorite weddings to date! It was such a beautiful event, so much fun, lots of love, and you two looked absolutely perfect. I’m so glad I could be part of this with you, and that we had a gorgeous day to celebrate your union. Thank you so much for allowing Sharron and I to be part of it. Best wishes in your future together! <3
