I have actually been writing this post in my head for a while now. What little special touch would I feature? How would I describe to you this amazing couple (who is a dream Stella Blue couple)? First I want you to know how intelligent, beautiful, kind and hard working Kristen is and Dan is that guy who thinks of everyone before himself and is equally intelligent and fun loving. When they are together you just know this is not just a couple in love, but best friends who invite everyone into their fun. After being married 13 years I can tell you that’s what it takes to build a beautiful life.

Their wedding day started with the sweetest gift from the groom, Dan. We all sat down as Kristen’s sister, Kelly set up a computer to share a gift Dan had for his wife-to-be. Dan had asked the singer of their first dance song to record a message for Kristen. We all knew how much thought he put into that awesome present. It was such a cool moment to have the singer of their first dance song in the room with all of us wishing her the best.

The Church was stunning. Light was flowing through the massive church windows and it was a photographer’s dream. Dan was so excited to see Kristen come down the aisle that by the time he got to her he spontaneously kissed her. Honestly it was THE BEST first kiss moment I have ever witnessed because it was so genuine and candid. I actually caught it (thank you God) I am so glad we were able to save that sweet and candid moment forever. That is their relationship. There is nothing held back with these two. Speaking of nothing held back, the dance floor did not disappoint! All of their friends and family also brought the fun. The live band, Silver Arrow was brought in from New York and made me pinch myself to remember this is really my job! I was having as much fun photographing the shenanigans as the guests were dancing and partying. This day was everything, because Kristen and Dan have a way of touching everyone they meet. I know this wedding will be talked about by friends and family for many many years to come. I hope these photos help them relive this best day ever. It was an honor to capture all these moments as they unfolded Kristen and Dan. Congratulations my friends!
