Brian and Kristen finally got MARRIED on Sept 25th 2020!! When they chose me to shoot their intimate backyard wedding I was so excited because intimate backyard weddings are something I love to do so so much!!
I watch these two walk their dog pretty much every day and I literally smile each time I see them (not kidding guys!) And no I am not a stalker…I just happen to be having my coffee or be in the kitchen right about the time they are walking by.
They described their day to me and I almost couldn’t speak!! How perfect… In their family back yard, under the pergola, flowers everywhere and with their special pup Bella right by their side!!
Kristen picked out the most unique dress and when it arrived it was full of hard plastic made for a barbie doll so she and the seamstress put their heads together… They cut/trimmed/removed things/had multiple fittings and wahhhhlahhhh!!
The perfect dress was ready! (Just wait until you see it!)
Brian (The Groom) was not only the groom but he was also the DJ. (not kidding) He planned to have everything set up and he even announced themselves for their first dance.
The flowers arrangements were created by Monarch Florists and Events (Jennifer) and they were the perfect match for the day!!
Their Cake was Created by Toy Ann’s Sweeterie in Valporaiso Indiana.
The reception was held at the Lighthouse in Cedar Lake! The view is always amazing there and of course the sun was perfect with temperatures just below 80 degrees. Everyone spent time on the terrace and gathered for photos throughout the night!
Since Brian and Kristen are music lovers they had their guests sign a Drumhead that they will have forever.
Enjoy this amazing sneak peek of Brian and Kristens day as they make their way to Florida to celebrate together!!
Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your day and thank you both for being so kind, super organized and making me laugh throughout the day!! You two are truly blessed to have each other!!!
