We usually ask our clients how and when they met, and when we asked Daniel and Kristin this, we were really surprised to hear that they met in kindergarten! They both grew up in Holyoke, CO living just a couple blocks away from one another, and in 3rd grade they would pretend that they were getting married! They had such a beautiful wedding, full of emotions – and we felt so privileged to meet all their family and friends, and spend this special day with them. So let me tell the rest of their wedding day story with photographs…
Kristin and her mom, I love how many emotional moments there are in a wedding day, each just as special as the next. Daniel, waiting for his bride… The best man’s daughter thought that because Kristin and Daniel were getting married, she was never going to see them again, she was heart-broken! I think she sobbed through the whole ceremony, poor thing! The pastor accidentally said Kristin’s sister’s name during the ceremony, it turned out to be a great moment of laughter, a nice break from all the tears! Daniel gave the sweetest, most romantic speech for Kristin, I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house! I bet Kristin will always remember that part of the reception… Dance time!!! Let me tell you, these people could dance! Not the “um, thats awkward and I don’t want to take a picture of you doing that”, kind of dance, but the swing the girl around, fancy foot-work, country line kind of dance! Both Brad and I were really impressed!
Thoughts from the bride and groom -
What was the most fun part of your day? Daniel and I both agree that one of the most fun parts of the day was taking pictures with you guys. It was a blast. The most memorable thing from that day for both Daniel and I was doing our first look. The way you two set it up made it so special to the two of us.
What was your favorite detail? It is hard to for us to pick one detail that was our favorite. We loved all of it together and how it was perfect for the two of us. The shoe shine chair was special to us since that was something my parents bought the first time we went to American Pickers where he proposed. We also loved the cupcakes and the little detail they added to the tables.
What advice would you give other couples planning their wedding? I would definitely tell other couples to make sure they make the day about them. Daniel and I both agree that the day was so special to the two of us because we made it exactly the way we wanted it to be!
What was the funniest moment of your wedding day? The funniest thing was definitely having Pastor call me by my sister’s name during the ceremony. Although it was sort of a relief to have that happen as it allowed to me breath a bit and stop crying… even if it was only for a second!
There wasn’t a thing we would change about our day. Even if things weren’t perfect it was still our day and that’s what made it so special.

If you know Brad, you know that he is NOT the type to get out on the dance floor and show off his stuff. I learned quickly at our wedding where he gets this from, his mom. During their mother and son dance, she tried to pull whoever she could on the dance floor, just so she could not be the center of attention. And I think their song was just over a minute long…Kristin really wanted us to come out on the dance floor, but I told her there was no way Brad would do it, he was just too shy. She said, I know how to make people not shy really quick! Then proceeded to dance with (or really just next to) Brad. It was pretty funny! Here is a pic-I think he is a step closer to getting out there Kristin!!!
