Sometimes life has a way of showing you what’s meant to be. Kristin & Chris go way back to high school geography, the place they met and became best friends and the place they spent less time learning about geography and more time passing jokes in folded up envelopes and playing with Kinder Egg toys. Despite going their separate ways in University, they would keep running into each other, and after Kristin agreed to a movie with a group of Chris’ friends one evening, their friendship was rekindled. The rest is history as they say.
Kristin is intelligent, independent, and driven, and has the amazing ability to transform any blank canvas into a beautiful work of art. Chris is so considerate and good natured and is rarely anything but happy. Together, they’re crazy about each other and have a love that is as easy and natural as their story.
Their wedding day was the epitome of ‘simple but glam’, Kristin’s signature style. The beading on the top of her two-piece wedding gown set off the simplicity of her skirt and glittered every way she turned. The wedding party was dressed in clean ivory gowns and classic blue suits, and the reception decorations at Mastronardi Estate Winery were textured golds and creams accented with greenery hanging from the ceiling and across the tables.
Willistead Manor was a perfect backdrop for their wedding party portraits as Kristin & Chris enjoyed some time to themselves to soak in the reality of their day before they headed off to their ceremony at Mastronardi Estate Winery. It took place under a perfect blue sky as they said their heartfelt vows with their cheering squads on either side of them, gave each other a ‘I can’t believe we’re finally married!’ look and sealed the deal with a kiss before heading off to their reception where they danced the night away.
Kristin & Chris, thank you so much for having us photograph your day. It was a joy to get to know you, hear your story and watch your day play out as you committed yourself to one another.
