I typically don’t check email during events but one particular wedding I had downtime waiting for vendors to arrive so checking my email I was surprised and excited by a bride. Her phone number was a 517 area code which meant either she went to Michigan State or lived in Lansing area but either way I knew I had to be part of her wedding day. Kristin had not only lived in Lansing but also was an alumni of my alma mator. To add the icing on the cake, after speaking to Kristin we realized not that we had friends in common but her fiance Regis was actually a college friend of mine. I was so happy the two of them met and fell in love. I remember thinking this is fate, I have to be part of their beautiful wedding day and to my luck they wanted me to be part of it.
The wedding took place in July which is typically not the ideal time for an outdoor wedding in Las Vegas but a dream of Kristin so we made it work. The entire wedding took place at the rustic Springs Preserve. The ceremony was held in the Garden Arbor. It is the perfect romantic space for a group of around 50 guests. Kristin and Regis weren’t the only two uniting in the ceremony but both Kristin’s daughter Kaelyn and Regis’s son mini Regis were gaining parents. The four of them held a special sand unity to show the two families become one. Following the ceremony guests were directed to the cocktail and reception space. Here they enjoyed cocktails and Hors D’oeuvres as the bridal party took photos around the gorgeous site. The dinner was an amazing display of Thyme Roasted Chicken, Roasted Pork Loin, Braised Asparagus & Carrots, Pommee Puree, and Fruit & Chocolate Mousse Cups by Divine Events. After dinner and cake cutting, the guests were out on the dance floor dancing the night away. I had an opportunity to chat with both Kristin and catch up finally with Regis throughout the evening. It was truly a blessing to see how far both Regis and I grew up since our college days. What a beautiful couple and gorgeous event this turned out to be. I need to add in that Kristin is very creative and most of the decor was handmade by her. The photos below by the amazing Elizabeth Le show the true love inspired by this couple:
Thank you Kristin & Regis for trusting me with your day! Also, thank you to our amazing Creative Team:
