Kristina and Randy are literally my DREAM clients. When I met them last Summer I knew I had to shoot their wedding. They are sweet as can be, quirky, adorable, they LOVE Disney (Kristina is basically a real-life Disney Princess), a bit nerdy (like me), and they were getting married in Yosemite. I could not ask to match better with any client.
They planned to get married at the Yosemite Valley Chapel, the same place that Randy’s parents got married 30 years ago. They set their wedding date for a day after Kristina’s parent’s anniversary. How sweet is it that they were honoring both sides.
Well, COVID happened and plans changed. Kristina knew she couldn’t wait to marry Randy so her parents set plans in motion to have the wedding on their family property (they are the 4th generation that has lived on the same country property). They had just a month to basically plan from scratch, and it came out so beautifully.
The ceremony was held at the Easton Presbyterian Church, which of course was the same church Kristina’s parents got married at 38 years and 1 day earlier.
It’s basically a castle fit for a Disney Princess.
Kristina surprised her parents, she had the DJ play their wedding song so they could have a special anniversary dance. The way Marty looks at his wife, 38 years later is basically life goals.
Remember the part where I said they were quirky and a bit nerdy? I have never seen a grooms get the garter in a better way. Kristina was so embarrassed, and it was just the best. Sorry, Kristina, it was HILARIOUS.
This sweet couple has been married for 47 years!
At the end of the night we got to sneak out and do some amazing night portraits with a smoke bomb!
Kristina and Randy I hope you two live happily ever after! You deserve it.
Thank you to all the vendors who helped make the day wonderful! I especially want to thank my second shooter Michelle for getting some AMAZING shots.
