8.08.09 Kristina + Joel

Shelly and I had an awesome time coordinating Kristina and Joel's wedding on Saturday at the Vintage House. It's hard to even describe how amazing of a time the event was, but it literally was just perfect! The second I met Joel and Kristina I knew I was going to love working with them, and not just because they met at MSU :) They are such a great pair, with great taste and wonderful family members and friends. We were able to work with and meet amazing vendors, which made the night even more fun!! Shelly and I had less than 2 hours to make the couple's vision a reality, and we did it! So many things about this night reminded us how lucky we are to be doing what we do and working with such amazing people, vendors and venues! I will continue to stalk Kristyn Smyth, their videographer of Castle Video Productions, and Kai and Kayley Heeringa's blog, the talented husband and wife photography team of Kai Heeringa Photography who shot the event, so we can provide you with a few professional snap shots...until then please enjoy Shelly's pictures...
