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!
