Chad and Kristin met six years before they got married. They were introduced by friends, and hung out for a few months with the same group of people before ever going on their first date. Once she started planning her wedding Kristin sought inspiration on wedding blogs and in magazines. She fell in love with a pink and gold palette she found in Martha Stewart Weddings. She decided that the look was soft and romantic, just what the was looking for and decided to run with it as the inspiration for her and Chad’s day.

From the Bride…
There were many DIY projects in the wedding. I made my bouquet out of brooches mostly my grandmothers or ones that were gifts from my mom. I made my flower girls halos. We painted old books with chalk board paint and added some sparkle and wrote street names for table seating. We hand stamped all of our programs and thank you cards. I also made my own wish tree with real branches I painted gold.
There were a few heirlooms in the wedding, the brooches from my grandmother for the bouquet, and I also used her prayer bible during the ceremony. I tied it to the ring bearer pillow and he carried it along with the pillow.
Some of the photo locations that had special meaning to us were in the small neighborhood where our home is located. The mural we took pictures in front of is at the park near our house were we work out together. The best part of my day was the actual ceremony and marrying the man of my dreams!!! I am very blessed to call him my husband.
