These two have such a special place in my heart. Kevin came into our lives a couple years ago, and over the years we have watched him meet Crista, fall in love, ask her to be his wife, and finally, marry her. They tied the knot on the edge of a sun-lit lake in Fort Stevens State Park near Astoria, Oregon. It was a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, surrounded just by their close family and friends, with a reception down a path and through the woods. Crista is naturally artistic and creative, so their whole wedding consisted of little touches of hand-crafted beauty and collected items. Friends came from all over to chip in and help make this wedding a reality. The cake was made by Crista's mom, and the food cooked by friends and family. Anne of Green Gables was one of Crista's favorite books growing up, so it provided lots of inspiration for their wedding. Mix-matched teacups and plates lined their lace-covered picnic tables, and guests enjoyed live music from a band of folk musicians. Later in the evening guests were taught how to contra dance, a favorite pastime of Crista & Kevin's. Later on, we slipped away for some couples portraits on the beach. Crista has always loved tall ships (and even spent a year traveling around the world in one!), so when we heard that a rusted shipwreck was just a mile down the road, we knew that photos with it were a must! It was the perfect day. I am so happy that we could be there to capture it, but more importantly, to celebrate with these two!! Our hearts are so full for you both, Crista & Kevin! Love you tons & congratulations!
