Blank checks are pretty amazing. The possibilities are endless, your mind is running, and you’re imagining what you could do with such a thing, right? Blank checks are awesome…especially if you can cash them in! In the case of AJ + Kriscinda, they gave me a blank check to do whatever I’d like on their wedding day in regards to photography, and you better believe that sucker got cashed! These two had one of the most fun weddings of the year, and it was an absolute blast to get to hang and capture it for them.
Friendship is something I have the honor of witnessing at every wedding; the bonds between the couple and their loved ones is always apparent. However, with AJ + Kriscinda, it runs even deeper than that. Their circle of friends IS their family, and I sense that every time I get to interact with this circle. You see, I’ve been honored to photograph a few other weddings for this group of friends, and every time I am impressed by how much they truly love one another and go the extra mile. So much so, that for AJ + Kriscinda, their friends Shawn + Buffy opened their beautiful home to be the site of their wedding! From transforming the home into a beautiful space, to the backyard becoming a magical place to say their vows, nestled under a gorgeous willow tree, every moment was perfect for the two of them. And not just those two came up to the plate to love on AJ + Kriscinda, but their entire group of friends stepped up, from running for more ice to combat the sweltering midday heat, to running errands for the bride to alleviate any worries at all, this group is extremely special, and AJ + Kriscinda are blessed to be loved by so many people.
As the ceremony came closer, it was amazing to watch the excitement grow, and the joy overtake both AJ + Kriscinda as they met below the willow tree to start their adventure together. There were no dry eyes as they committed to one another, and the cheers were real as high fives were given when they walked back down the aisle together as husband and wife!
And, not only was the ceremony amazing, but these folks know how to turn up for a party…and they did just that! This group is fantastic on the dance floor, and plenty of shenanigans ensued, culminating in a 30 foot tall bonfire and a fantastic sparkler exit to boot! From start to finish, this was a wedding that won’t be forgotten.
AJ + Kriscinda, thank you so very much for allowing me to be a part of your amazing day, and for entrusting me with your moments! It was an honor, and I’m so thankful to call you friends! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the two of you, because I know whatever it may be, you two are true teammates and will do it together! Congratulations!
