Kristen + David : A Romantic Russell Lands Wedding

You guys like to have fun, yeah? Well, meet two people that love to have fun. Kristen and David. I’ve known Kristen’s family for a while, since her brother and sis-in-law are Bryanna and Kevin, whose wedding I shot in 2014 (see their gorg blog post here) and Bryanna is the pretty lady behind Vera Flora, my number one recommended florist and also who did the florals at this wedding. I often joke at fun weddings that I want to be adopted, or at least be an honorary member of, their families, and this is definitely one of those. Take a look at this romantic Russell Lands wedding at the Stables.

Not only are Kristen and David a beautiful couple and a blast to hang out with, they are also incredibly driven and successful. Kristen and I grew our relationship on a more personal level and I have been able to be a part of her work too- her brother-in-law became our pediatric dentist after the wedding and they’ve been amazing for my littles. David is a lawyer downtown. They extended their drive into wedding planning and everything came together flawlessly. For real.

I’ll post all the vendors at the end as usual, but a quick shout out to Chelsea at Mariée Ami for keeping the day flowing just right. We had multiple venue stops and a big wedding party and between both of us, we never once got behind schedule. #goals

Kristen and David, I could gush forever about your wedding and you guys, but you already know how much I love y’all. Hope you enjoy a little reminder of your beautiful day, can’t believe it’s already been over a year! <3

I love this layout for the ceremony- bride and groom in the middle with seating all around them. The upstairs of the barn at the Stables worked out wonderfully for this.

That view never gets old, and I swear is prettier every time I go.
