I don’t think I have ever met a more kind, sweet and caring person in my life. I know for certain Craig will always be cared for, loved and adored by his sweet wife Kristen. Though I only met Kristen and Craig when they booked with Aaron and I, Kristen and I have become friends and as much as she adored Craig, he also adores her.
Their wedding day was hosted at a new and upcoming venue in Connellesvile called 10 Valley Farms. Though it’s not quite complete yet, it provided a lovely backdrop for Craig and Kristen’s dream rustic glam wedding. Though Kristen is sweet and simple, this girl LOVES her bling! So throughout the day, you will be pop’s of bling here and there.
Right before Kristen joined Craig for their first look, all of her bridesmaids gathered around for a quick prayer. It was one of the sweetest moments!
First of all, Craig’s reaction here is so sweet! Secondly, we had a few curious bridesmaids who just couldn’t help but peek in the window. Poor Craig was so nervous, like any groom, but his reaction to seeing his sweet bride to be was priceless!
The looks on their faces make my heart so happy!
Kristen’s dream wedding had a few preferred items on the list. She wanted bling, bright colors, rose petals being tossed as she came down the isle and a willow tree. By nights end she had gotten all of her wedding wishes.
A darling father daughter dance just before the traditional polish bridal dance. If you aren’t sure what a bridal dance is, it’s where each of the guest pay to dance with the bride. They drop a dollar or other amount of money in the bag and dance with the lovely bride. After each guest dances with the bride, her father joins her on the dance floor.
After this dance is done, the guests gather around and the groom tries to break in and steal his bride away.
Traditionally the bride and groom would then exit but most couples choose to stay and still enjoy their wedding reception.
These two snuck outside for a few final photos in the setting sun under Kristen’s willow tree.
