Kristine's Wedding

Disclaimer: I take a lot of pictures. I have thought about taking a photography class and buying an expensive camera.. but have just never done it. So, bare with me as I post my favorite pictures from Kristine's wedding...

This past weekend was my friend Kristine's wedding. It was absolutely beautiful and it was so much fun!


Thursday night was the wedding dinner at The Paris - a quaint little restaurant on 15th and 15th. We had hor' dourvs (sp?) and mingling, then on to a 3 course dinner and then a small program. I was a bridesmaid and didn't know that I needed to give a short little speech on Kristine. My fear realized. Standing in front of 85 people I barely know having to give a speech. Luckily, Brooke and I decided to give a little poem together and it made it less frightening.


Kris and Jake looked so happy and so excited to get married. It was a great party and started the wedding weekend off with a kick.



I wish I could say that this was Kristine's and Jake's reaction to the awesome (I say sarcastically) speech Brooke and I gave - but I think this was taken when her brother Jason burst into song as he gave his speech:


Friday was a perfect fall day to get married. There was a crisp chill in the air, but it was just perfect. Kristine looked absolutely beautiful! Here are a few pictures from the temple:







Their reception was at La Caille and it was such a party!

This was the reception as it was begin set up:


Her centerpieces were beautiful:



The food was AMAZING!

I gorged on chocolate desserts the entire evening:





Congrats Kristine and Jake! Thanks for letting me be apart of your wedding!

Finally you post the pictures. It all looks so beautiful. Probably would have been better with me there, but what do you do. I wish I could have been there. You look darling in all the photos. And so exciting for Kristine she is now a wife.

Nat - I am so happy that you took all of those pic's - you know me and details... I kept checking your blog over the weekend to see if you had posted any from the wedding, Tina looks super happy. Thanks. Oh, and you look adorable as well!

Her dress is gorgeous and I love your dresses for the wedding! Bridesmaids tend to look frumpy and weird, so it's nice to see cute dresses. Actually now that I'm thinking about it, I've only been to about 4 weddings where bridesmaids have looked messed up...still, I like yours.

Good documenting Nat! It was good to see all the details, because I didn't notice all of them when I was there, bc it was so crowded. Her wedding was so pretty. She looked so beautiful. Wish I could have talked to you more....

I am impressed with her dress, as well as the bridesmaids dresses. That was no cheap wedding:)) BUt so fun for her! I had no idea she married Jake Olson! Awesome !

BTW- your picture from back when with the glasses should be framed in your room somewhere. That is priceless. Love it

It's so fun to see pictures of the wedding since I didn't take any! Thanks for the post and for being a part of the day... I loved having you there for everything! You are a gem of a friend and I love you to pieces! I like reading everyone's comments as well, now I don't feel so pressured to get pictures up of the wedding, although I will. Love you!
