What happens when two wonderful people that have two great families meet, fall in love, and marry? A bigger blended family with more love is created. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to record their special wedding. There was so much love in the air on that beautiful day in May. (Erin, very much a part of this family, was unable to be here because she is serving in the military.)
Not much work needed here. The bride, Kristine, is so beautiful already, both inside and out. Kudos to the makeup artist, Michelle Beattie. She really knew her stuff and was so nice to work with. Everyone looked so pretty.
Kristine's daughter and ......
her new (step) daughter are looking stunning and ready for the ceremony.
Before her makeup was finished, Kristine decided to open the card and gifts from her groom, Larry.
This was a good choice. Any smudges from the misty eyes can easily be fixed now..
Three generations have this under control. I am off to check out the groom and the other males in the wedding party.
Larry is very touched by his bride's gift to him in it's own special wooden case. Both Larry and Kristine are police officers, hence the badge on top of the case.
I just love this picture! Larry's oldest son is reading a card from Larry to Kristine's youngest son, and ring bearer. He said, "Thanks Larry!" But his face really says it all.
The back yard of the groom's parent's house is beautifully decorated and the day is perfect. Here are a few photos of the details.
Everyone is ready. Where is the bride?
Here she is, with her dad.
The ceremony was beautiful, filled with words of love. Each family member was highlighted and the children of the bride and groom all participated. Two families were becoming one.
I love how each family member got to pour some of their own colored sand into the jar to make the beautiful keepsake that represents the joining of two families.
Let the party begin!
Congratulations Kristine and Larry....... and Erin, Kelsey, Lydia, Cameron, Connor and Josh! The Brady Bunch, of sorts!
