3 words best describe your wedding: Natural, Present, & Intimate
The rustic farm scenery provided a beautiful and serene backdrop for the ceremony
The Ceremony: For our ceremony, we feel our vows and process of unionizing was special. We had a knot tying ceremony that included different people for each rope. Our mothers, grandmother, and all bridal party members were able to lay a rope for us to eventually bind together. We also had a blessing of the elements. We are both very spiritual and loved bringing the Universe’s blessing into the ceremony. We had a very brief and light kiss of rain during our ceremony, too. It was perfect!
Favorite Memory: Looking back, my favorite part of the day was walking to my dad before he walked me down the aisle. It was a dream come true to have my dad there. My dad is 47 years older than I am, so I was always nervous growing up about him being there and wishing and praying I’d get married in time for him to walk me down the aisle. A moment I’ll treasure forever!
What’s your favorite thing about each other?
My favorite thing about Andrew is his infectious smile and charismatic charm! He gets along with everybody and truly engages people and is so warm. It’s easy to be around this guy! Lucky me!
The most amazing thing about is Kristal is that she’s obsessed with love and growth; students, friends, and strangers alike, Kristal commits herself to helping others reach their full potential and to find happiness! Simply being in her presence lifts a person’s vibration. She’s a beautiful soul and I’m blessed to spend each day with her.
Rustic decor details such as lace and burlap along with succulents and baby’s breath went perfectly with the farm’s setting; coral linens brightened up the reception area while wooden tables added to the rustic vibe.
You two seem very creative- are you involved in the arts? We are not involved in the arts (professionally) but we both enjoy exploring creative outlets. Andrew loves to design and I love to paint! We both love originality and work to blaze our own trails in our personal and professional lives. Andrew is a regional manager for Solar City, helping the world go solar one roof at a time, and I am a counselor for Grand Canyon University’s College of Education. Both of us lead with passion everyday as we work to make this a better place for all. Being a positive catalyst for change gets us excited!
Sweetness: Our reception had a special touch as well. The bride’s sister, Kendra, sang the couple’s first song, “I won’t give up” by Jason Mraz. Playing her acoustic guitar on that summer night, it transformed the whole time into a dream.
Were there any surprises on your wedding day or things you would change? Yes! Time fliesssss on your wedding day! Haha! We were behind from the beginning… but our friends and family were such good sports. Many of them graciously let us know how nice it was to have time to take their own pictures and take in the scenery before the ceremony. Sweet spin of them to put on it.
Congratulations Kristal and Andrew and thank you for sharing your wedding day with us!
