I must say, this weekend’s wedding was one for the books! When Kristin told me their idea to invite all their friends to their beautiful new home and then surprise them with a wedding, I was allllll about it. And it’s such a Kristin and Emerson thing to do to begin their marriage by thinking of what they could do to serve their friends and make the experience more fun and enjoyable for them. The first time I really had the chance to get to know them they were helping to set up and tear down Amber and Tony’s wedding. They worked tirelessly the entire time and asked for nothing in return. They are such incredible individuals, and together even more so.
It feels like just yesterday we were wandering around Ravine Gardens State Park for their engagement session and they were wowing me with their incredible dance skills, and then they blew me away further still at their reception; I could have watched them for hours. They know each other so well they made it look effortless, as if they were the same person in two bodies. Simply beautiful.
When they made the surprise announcement the whole backyard erupted into cheers. Everyone was so happy for them!
They quickly ran inside to change their clothes while friends and family pulled out the chairs from hiding and set up the ceremony space.
They were both in tears at the sight of each other and in the excitement of being surrounded by their favorite people at their beautiful new home.
Everyone followed them to reception venue just down the street and the celebrating and dancing commenced. It was such a fun night!
Thank you for inviting me to participate you guys! I had so much fun!
