Krystena and Justin are lovers of ice cream, a couple that would do absolutely anything for their friends and family, and have the most spontaneous, and fun-loving heart. They put their whole heart into celebrating their wedding… down to Every. Last. Amazing. Detail. They decorated the Botanic Gardens with beautiful vintage furniture as a nod to their elegance, the florals were soft neutral and pastel colors to represent their romantic hearts. Yard games like cornhole were scattered about the lawn to celebrate their fun spirit, and an ice cream and s’mores bar were dessert- a token of their love of (their favorite) sweets.
Everywhere you looked, there was something to eat, play, or participate in. Krystena and Justin had the most beautiful day, and nobody is more deserving of it than this kind couple. From Krystena’s reveal to her father, to Justin’s teary expression when he saw Krystena walk down the aisle, you can just feel how much love radiated from them and their guests the entire day.
One of my absolute favorite moments that day was upon leaving; I asked Krystena and Justin if they wanted any other pictures before we wrapped up. Justin said “Can you get this moment?” He gently swept Krystena onto the dance floor, wrapped his arms around her waist, laid his forehead on hers, and romantically swayed to the music. A moment to breathe and really enjoy each other at the end of a crazy fun wedding day.

Wanderlust Weddings and Events, Sapphire and Lace, Vintage Alley Rentals, DeStefino Beauty Bar to name a few! It isn’t often that my favorites are all looped together into one wedding! <3
