We just loved being a part of Kristi and Joe’s special day this past November. Although the two of them live out of state, they still chose to have their special day happen right in their hometown, Lafayette, our hometown too.
We met up with Kristi and Joe at the Carriage House Hotel in River Ranch in Lafayette where she prepped for the ceremony later that day. She was surrounded by her close family and bridesmaids all morning long, and the day just flew by! After getting dressed and ready, Kristi headed downstairs to the courtyard where she had a first look with her dad, which was by far one of the sweetest moments ever. Especially when Kristi’s mom joined in on the group hug right after. Cue all the tears.
Once the ceremony began, Joe immediately reacted to Kristi walking down the aisle and it was so amazing to see their connection. The ceremony was beautiful, held in the gazebo behind City Club and immediately following it, the two broke off from the crowd after saying “I Do” to take photos of just the two of them. Then they danced into the night surrounded by family and friends. What a beautiful day surrounded by loved ones to celebrate such a big day in their lives. Congratulations you two!
