This was defniitely one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have been asked to photograph, and I just love the look on the officiant’s face during the kiss!

As guests entered the Contented Sole following the ceremony, they were greeted with this amazing display that would lead them right to their table.

Alright, so the walk has been walked, the kiss has been kissed, the first dance has been danced and the cake has been cut…It’s time to break out the cigars and drinks in cute little jars and get the celebration started.

My original plan was to do this wedding in one post, but there are just too many faves I wanted to share!  So let me break this down for ya:)

Kristin and Bennett spend a lot of time on the coast, so it was only natural that they plan their wedding to include lots of coastal details.  And it only took a short look around Krisi’s parents’ rental camp to decide exactly how I wanted to shoot the rings….

After a few morning details were captured, it was time to start prepping for the day.  Over in the girls camp, the cutest little flower girl began studying and training to do her job just perfectly…..um, maybe a little too perfectly…

And in the guy’s camp, Bennett was busy crawling under the porch in search of golf balls…..

…and yeah, the boys had no problem filling their morning with all sorts of shenanigans.

While all that craziness was going on, Kristin let the pampering begin as she quietly memorized her vows.

How adorable is it that both Kristin and Bennett use the same method when trying to memorize something?

Finally, the boys got down to some serious tie-business….

With a few final jewelry touches (Etsy again!) and a gorgeous dress from Madeleine’s Daughter, Kristin’s transformation was complete.
