What was your first impression of each other?:

There wasn’t really one? We were friends first for about 7-8 years before we ever started dating. We were just really good friends for a long time until Spencer decided to send Krista flowers on her 21 st birthday.

When did each of you know you were in love?:

There wasn’t a particular moment, just a lot of little moments that added up. We said “I love you” for the first time when Spencer came home on a visit from the Air Force for the 4th of July.

Church wedding

How did the proposal happen?:

Krista and her family LOVE Disney. She had hinted at getting engaged at Disney for almost her entire life. In October of 2016 Spencer and Krista took a trip to Disney with just the two of them and while walking along the beach watching fireworks at their hotel, Spencer asked Krista to marry him.

Style of the wedding:

English Garden


Silver and Newport Blue

Anything unique happen or with decor?:

Lanterns on the tables (Bride’s favorite princess movie is Tangled)

dusty blue floral bridesmaid robes Dusty blue bridesmaids dresses

If you had to pick a favorite moment of the day what would it be?:

When I finally got to the end of the aisle. Up until that point I was full of anxiety and when I finally got to the end, I was suddenly completely calm. Spencer’s was arriving at the reception. He loved seeing everyone we loved that loved us back there to support us.

What was the most fun part of the wedding to plan?:

The entire reception. From the cake to the chairs to the music. It was fun to finally see it all come together and look exactly as I imagined.
