This Cincinnati English Garden Wedding Video Will Make You Cry
Krista Veerkamp, 27, Teen Librarian at Public Library of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH
Spencer Smith, 28, Team Lead at Fifth Third Bank, Cincinnati, OH
We were introduced between mutual friends at a St. Xavier HS football game in 2006. We were juniors in high school at the time.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
