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’s backyard wedding in Dayton, they gave me a blank check 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 are always apparent. However, with AJ + Kriscinda, it runs 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. Every time I am impressed by how much they truly love one another and go the extra mile! For AJ + Kriscinda, their friends Shawn + Buffy opened their beautiful home to be the site of their wedding. They transformed their home into a beautiful space for a wedding. The backyard became a magical place to say wedding vows, complete with a gorgeous willow tree. Every moment was perfect for the two of them.
As the ceremony came closer, it was amazing to watch the excitement grow. Finally, joy overtook 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. Even better, cheers and high fives were given out freely as they walked down the aisle together as husband and wife!
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. How can that be any better? Well, they culminated it with a 30 foot tall bonfire and a fantastic sparkler exit! From start to finish, this was a beautiful backyard wedding that won’t be forgotten.
AJ + Kriscinda, thank you so very much for allowing me to be a part of your amazing day. 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. I know whatever it may be, you two are true teammates and will do it together. Congratulations!
