Wedding Wednesday: The Jones Wedding

Kevin & Kristin Jones | November 2, 2013 | Photography by Magnifico Photography

Fate must've stepped in for Kevin and Kristin on the night they met. Kristin declined a Halloween party invitation due to an already scheduled blind date, but when the date didn't show, Kristin decided to have some fun and attend the party. Kevin, dressed in a Chargers football jersey, flexed his muscles to no one in particular; Kristin's opening line, "I bet I have bigger muscles," won his attention - and his heart, since they've been together ever since! A few days before Christmas, Kristin picked Kevin up at the bus station for his visit. He and her family joined forces to surprise her, with her sister yelling at Kristin to go look at something outside. Kristin stepped out to find her Prince Charming - Kevin, all dressed up in a prince costume, riding a horse like something out of a fairy tale. After Kristin said yes, they rode to a staging area where a limo took them to dinner, a restaurant she'd worked at in high school and where her parents had met. Kristin says her favorite wedding day memory is walking down the aisle and seeing her future husband for the first time, like it was just the two of them in the room. (Moments later, they were trying to figure out their choreographed dance because her dress was so big!) The couple incorporated many ideas into their day that in some ways, told their life story. White pumpkins were seasonal and also reminded them of Kevin's Cinderella proposal; green was chosen as it was her late father's favorite color; and her bouquet had a Hawaiian orchid to represent Kevin's family. Simple decorations and colors of gold, hunter green, and bronze complemented the venue's gold and off-white colors. Memorial pumpkins represented family members no longer with them while centerpieces were soft gold votives and pictures of the newlyweds at their ages to correspond with the table number. The happy couple spent a honeymoon week at a friend's beach house in Atlantic City, where they relaxed, ate well, and even won some money.

Wedding Wednesday: The Crowe Wedding

Mike & Crystal Crowe | May 4, 2013 | Photography by Noah Magnifico Photography

Crystal Harrington's prayer for a tall, funny, family man was answered in the form of one Mike Crowe, who proposed to her on camera while they took photos of themselves in football jerseys. For these two, their wedding was all about family (Crystal has a 15-year-old daughter, while Mike has a 10-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son). Crystal and Mike gave the kids engraved tokens to honor the day; Crystal's favorite memory was when her daughter gave her bridesmaid speech and explained how much she loved Mike for treating her like one of his own. A purple and green color palette was chosen for the wedding, with purple and white balloons at the ceremony, rose and carnation pomanders on the aisle and centerpieces, and bouquets with purple calla lilies, cream roses, and purple carnations. The family made strawberry jam for favors, while the cake resembled Crystal's gorgeous wedding gown. Crystal and Mike celebrated with a honeymoon in Punta Islita Resort in Costa Rica, where she crossed "zip lining across a rainforest" off her bucket list!
