The weddings we have photographed this year have blown me away. They have been some of the most gorgeous weddings I have ever seen - in real life or in magazines - and we got to photograph them! It's been a crazy year filled with so many exciting things and new experiences, and Kristen + Mac's extravagant river wedding is at the very top of that list.
Kristen + Mac had a GORGEOUS wedding!! It was filled with color and romance and music and river views and what felt like an explosion of flowers. It had everything. And at the very center of it was two people who are insanely in love. You can tell they adore each other just by the way they look at each other. But on top of that, Kristen + Mac are two of the most generous and kind-hearted people you will ever meet. They made David and I feel so welcome and almost like family on their wedding day.
Taylor of Alyson Taylor Events did a fabulous job helping Kristen style + plan the day. They put together a rockstar vendor team (all credits below) who made Kristen + Mac's dream wedding come to life.
Their wedding took place at Mac's family's river house overlooking the water in Gloucester, Virginia. The ceremony site overlooked the water and was filled with gorgeous brightly colored florals.
They had a two sperry tents set up for the reception. The larger one housed the dance floor and the guest's dinner tables. The smaller tent was the whiskey + cigar lounge! They had every kind of whiskey you could imagine complimented by an array of fine cigars and cozy couches to sink into and watch the sunset over the water. As you can imagine, the men at this wedding were in heaven!
The reception tent was STUNNING and housed some of the most beautiful floral arrangements I have ever seen. Everything was so perfectly styled and every detail was thought of.
Perfect 10 Band (My favorite wedding band of all time!) rocked the reception with non-stop music. When they play, it's like a private concert with amazing vocals, dance moves, and a light show. All of the guests were having the time of their lives.
Eventually all great things must come to an end - so Kristen + Mac ended the night on a high note with a sparkler send-off before taking off in a 1960's Mustang! This truly was a magical day and I hope you all enjoy the photos. Congratulations to the new Mr. + Mrs. Christian!
