Spring, TX – Kristah and Nick’s Wedding

We had a really busy January, starting with a very special wedding.  It seems like just a few weeks ago I was meeting Kristah and Nick at Hermann Park for their engagement session.  Wait, I should probably rewind a little further, lets go back to 1995 (gasp!), when I first met Kristah, a slightly shy but incredibly sweet classmate.  Kristah was always so kind hearted, she always included me in the playground favorite of cops and robbers, she critiqued my research paper in seventh grade (consequently I got an A too!), and was always patient when I would arrive fifteen minutes late in eight grade after failing to pick out the “perfect outfit” (sorry Mrs. Miller!!!).  Nearly twenty years later, the day had arrived, Kristah and Nick’s wedding day, and it really couldn’t have been more perfect!

Little blue box compliments of Nick.  He is GOOD!  And that garter?  Same garter Kristah’s mom wore! ( :

I have always admired how close Kristah’s family is and I couldn’t help but smile when I saw how happy Kristah’s sister looked on her wedding day.

It always makes my eyes tear up when I get to wittiness the Dad’s reaction.  Dr. Miller just looks so proud!!!

Next onto the dashing groom, who was very excited to see his bride during their first look!

Because Kristah and Nick’s ceremony started at sunset, they choose to have a first look.  Seeing Nick’s tender reaction was one of my favorite parts of the day!

After a few minutes together, it was time for us to head to the church, Trinity Lutheran Church, and catch the last rays of light as guests arrived.

In between songs we snuck outside for a few minutes to take a couple of photos of just the newlyweds!

Finally it was time to say goodnight.  Everyone was having so much fun, it was hard to shut down the party.  Luckily we had some help getting everyone’s attention from a close family friend (see below).  I need to learn how to do that!
