Kristyn and Shane's weddings was filled with sentiment. Not so much in decoration and trinkets but in family and their surroundings. They were married in the church that Kristyn's mother and father said "I do" some 30 years ago and prior to that, Kristyn's own grandparents were MEANT to say their vows in the very same church had it not been for a terrible snow storm. They were still married but were unable to make it to their beloved church and still carried on with their vows at the bride's home. What is meant to be surely will be. As Kristyn's mother stood placing her veil on her sweet daughter's head I found I was the one filled with emotion. They were steadfast yet laughing at me who was emotional. Of course, I do this EVERY weekend but I was so caught in such an honored space watching such a beautiful moment take place. It was a bit of history unfolding so beautifully.
The couple chose not to do a first look, but a first touch, at the front doors of the church. Bill was with Shane and Bill said that when he told Shane it was "time to go" (just talk to Kristyn) Shane became quite emotional. Bill described the moment as so sweet and overwhelming and he kept Shane breathing. Shane was so excited to talk to her and the emotions just took over. We love how our couples ebb and flow on their wedding day, often trading places with each other. Bill and I are always sure to keep Kleenex close by (for me too). Please enjoy their love story through our images. This is just a very, very small snippet of their day and the beginning of so much for such a wonderful couple!
