Wedding Wednesday: The Hiner Wedding

Paul & Kira Hiner | October 12, 2013 | Photography by Stephen Mills Photography

 After meeting each other at work and becoming an inseparable couple, Paul and Kira moved into their first home together years later. That big move wasn't the only one they would make together that weekend as Paul also proposed two days later. The couple loves everything fall related, so it only made sense for them to get married in October with a fall themed wedding and color scheme of orange, burgundy, and yellow. These colors were carefully weaved into the wedding party's outfits to match the gray dresses and suits. The décor featured leaves and pumpkins throughout as well as many monogrammed elements such as their wooden monogram used as a guestbook. Kira kept things very unique such as her walk down the aisle to "Marry Me" by Train instead of the traditional wedding march as well as having a floating votive candle for the Unity Candle portion of the ceremony. Other special elements included the personalized tank tops Kira made for her and her bridesmaids to get ready in, the monogrammed Chuck Taylors she wore for the reception to match the guys, and the officiant's guide dog who was present for the ceremony. The reception consisted of a passed hors d'oeuvres and cocktail hour plus a four course dinner including their wedding cake. The dance order was also nontraditional as Paul and his mother had the first dance, then Kira and her father with their choreographed dance to "Do You Love Me" by the Contours, and the couple's first dance to "Your Arms Feel Like Home" by 3 Doors Down. The fun didn't stop there! Paul returned for the garter toss in gym shorts and tall socks to do his best Risky Business impersonation. The couple gave engraved pint glasses as favors to their guests and also a pumpkin to take home with them. They ended their evening by driving away in the father of the groom's newly purchased 1980 baby blue Corvette, but they decided to come back. The couple continued their fun in their honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
