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.
