When I think of Kristen and John, one word comes prominently to my mind: balance. Simply put, they are one of those couples that just mesh together so perfectly. Kristen with her easy-going joy is balanced out by John’s constant, calm demeanor. Like chocolate cookies and a tall glass of milk, they share a symmetry that is both interesting to watch and refreshing to experience.
In terms of the actual wedding, although high temperatures attempted to drive us all indoors, wonderfully wistful clouds swooped in to offer us just the right amount of protection as we went about our morning activities. We laughed together as Kyle, Kristen’s brother, covered his face to avoid watching Kristen and John share a bridal party kiss (image below), and then we laughed some more when Mike (Kristen’s dad) accidentally dropped his glasses during his daddy-daughter dance. Throughout it all Ashley Cudsik (the owner of The Barn at Oak Manor & the lead coordinator at Flower Child Weddings), did an incredible job of making sure every detail ran just as it should! All in all a near perfect wedding day.
One of my favorite moments of every wedding day.
I am a firm believer that every one of my grooms must learn how to properly dip his woman.
My favorite reaction of all time: to the right of Kristen you’ll find her brother Kyle guarding his eyes against the romance.
Ashley at the Barn at Oak Manor never disappoints at making her venue look amazing!
One of the coolest getaway cars I’ve photographed to date. (Thanks Elegance On A Cloud Limousines!)
