Hi everyone! I am so very excited to finally introduce you all to Kristine of In Love, Engaged! Kristine is the newest addition to the ELD Editorial team, and she’s going to be gracing ELD posts with her lovely self every now and then! Get ready for some weddings, inspiration, and maybe even some advice from her too- she did JUST get married after all! :) Give Kristine a big welcome! You’re going to love her! :)Ā 

 

Hello ELD readers! I’m so thrilled to be here with you all today and to be joining this fabulous blog. Isn’t Lauren great?! I can tell you’re nodding your heads in agreement. Good!

I have to say, I’m really glad I get to share this wedding from Captured By Jenny as my first with you all. Besides the stunning photography and incredible detail shots, this couple is JUST PLAIN HAPPY. And they should be considering they’ve known each other since sixth grade. Sixth grade! How cool is that? They also incorporated some really neat details into their wedding–a Philadelphia cake to represent their home city, their dog as the flower girl, and tables named after Tom Petty lyrics {their fave} that played the song when opened! So, grab a warm drink on this first day of Fall and stay awhile because you’ll want to soak up all the loveliness in these photos. Plus, there’s an interview with the bride, Krista, too!

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

“The Knot.com” was a life saver! It helped me stay on track with everything- including the small details! My Hubby was also a big help :)

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

When choosing who to work with for the wedding, the most important thing was connection. It was very important that my vendors and I were on the same level. They were just as excited as I was, we shared the same vision, and we both knew what to expect.

Did any of your vendors do anything special for you before, on, or after your wedding day that you would like to share?

All of my vendors rocked! They all meshed together and made the day go smoothly. My wedding planner, Kristen, from The Planning Company was by my side the whole time, like a “wedding coach” and kept everything running smoothly and gave impromptu directions- I couldn’t have survived the day without her! She also handled all the problems- I’m sure much more than I was even aware of!

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

Being blown away! All the decor, cake included, and the small details blended so well together and created a beautiful expression of who Jim and I are. The Planning Company took our vision and truly delivered! It was really great to create this intimate atmosphere and share it with our closest friends and family.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Do NOT underestimate the power of a wedding planner!! The price of their service will pay for itself in many ways!

 

A very sincere thanks to Captured by Jenny for sharing these stunning images from the day and to the just-as-stunning bride, Krista, for her great insight!

Don’t you just love these photos? They really create a picture of the day and make you feel like you were there. And doesn’t this couple look as happy as can be? That’s by far my favorite part. What’s yours?! I can’t wait to hear.
