and her crocheted pink slippers were a delightful complement and super different wedding shoe selection

So cute.

The Vintage Garden Wedding PhotographerThe Vintage Garden Wedding PhotographerThe Vintage Garden Wedding PhotographerAs the words from Phil Whickam’s song “You’re Beautiful” played,
Paul and Kristen’s hearts were filled with joy.

The Vintage Garden Wedding Photographer
“When we arrive at eternity’s shore
Where death is just a memory and tears are no more
We’ll enter in as the wedding bells ring
Your bride will come together
And we’ll sing You’re beautiful”

The Vintage Garden Wedding PhotographerAs the message began, the clouds rolled off and the sun shone brightly.

The Vintage Garden Wedding PhotographerThe Vintage Garden Wedding PhotographerAs all the adults were busy listening to the wedding message,
all these  guys could see was the perfect climbing tree.
RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM.
Not to mention, they were wearing brand new clothes
and everyone knows new clothes beg to get messy!
