Sometimes I walk away from a wedding, thinking, “I could totally be friends with those people!!!” Ok. Well, maybe it happens more often than not. But with Nick and Kristina, I was really saying it on my drive home that night!
These two love each other — they’re the best of friends. They’re honest and down to earth and incredibly fun. I loved my time with Kristina’s sweet bridesmaids, who doted on her and helped her look and feel her best throughout the day. Nick’s groomsmen were a hoot. When we’re all laughing, even an hour in to photos, you know it’s going to be a good day.
I asked Kristina what her favorite memories of the wedding are and she said,
My favorite part of the day was reading my vows to Nick. It was all my emotions on one page. My other favorite part was dancing with my friends. I always laugh so hard when I am with them and since they are from my hometown, I hardly get to see them anymore. One of my favorite things in life is when we are all together in one place. I’m never worrying about the next day or work struggles or finances. I’m just me, with them, and I felt whole. Lastly, getting ready in the morning with my girls :) Kathryn and Abby nailed it. Everything was so fun and everyone looked amazing.
Now, before I show you this beautiful wedding day, I have to add another favorite part of the story.
The Pickle Bus. A certain Indy transportation company (that will go unnamed) had their main transportation vehicle breakdown the morning of the wedding. Instead of an equal replacement, they sent this school bus…painted like a giant pickle. Complete with no air conditioning and fog machines inside the bus (WHY?!), I wondered if my sweet bride was going to just stand there and cry. NOPE. She climbed right in and we all laughed. It’s forever going to be a memory that goes down in wedding day history! (and shows the amazing spirit of my girl, Kristina)
