Kris and Kristen’s wedding is another one of those weddings that is jam-packed with details; there’s the cupcake bar, the hilarious napkins, the beer kozy favors, the out-of-this-world centerpieces…

I have to say though, what really made me fall in love with this wedding were the bride and groom photos. Adding a Vespa, some balloons, a very cool sign, and, at one point, a couple of musicians, Alea Moore’s shots are little bit quirky, totally pretty and capture a couple that looks like they have a great time together.

Make sure to keep reading to hear Kristen’s advice to brides just getting started.

Kristen’s Thoughts:
The most meaningful part of our wedding day was our first dance. My husband is a huge Metallica fan and really wanted our first dance to be to the song ‘Nothing Else Matters.’ We found an instrumental version by Apacalytica and performed a Viennese Waltz that took us six months to learn. Not only did we have a beautiful first dance but we found a new hobby that we can do together. We continue to take dance lessons with the instructors at Arthur Murray Dance Studios in Atlanta, GA.

The best advice I can offer new brides is stay organized and book vendors early. I saved a lot of money booking vendors a year in advance. Plus, it gives you plenty of time to pay for the wedding allowing you to not be in debt after the big day.
