FROM THE BRIDE //  Our wedding day was so perfect and exactly how we had imagined. We knew from the start we wanted a destination beach wedding.  We were lucky to have found an awesome resort and vendors that were so helpful along the way. We were so happy to have all of our family there to be part of the celebration. The day of wedding seemed to go by so quickly and we were both filled with so much joy. Saying our vows in front of the ocean is something we both will never forget. It felt so surreal that the day we had been waiting for had finally come. We were so excited to get married and start our journey in life together.

We got a lot of decor inspiration by looking at beach weddings on Pinterest. Knowing that our wedding would be held on the beach, we wanted everything to have a soft/romantic look.
Out favorite moment of the wedding day:
Kristen: Bride:My favorite moment of our wedding day was the ceremony as a whole. When the sun came out and blue skies appeared it was such an incredible experience. We were both filled with such excitement and couldn’t wait for our first kiss as husband and wife.
Justin:It’s hard to pick just one favorite moment, everything was so great. But if I had to pick one moment it would be when I got to see Kristen for the first time. She just took my breath away in that dress. It’s a moment I’ll never forget.
