Wedding | Kristen & Charles | Avalon Country Club at Buhl Park

Saturday’s wedding begins what I call the “stretch” for me – consecutive weekends in a row without time off.  Basically from mid May – mid October I’m on every weekend.  I love it but at the beginning of the season it’s like being in the first car of a roller coaster and heading up a very tall hill – a bit daunting!   However there is no better way to start the season off than with a wedding such as this one!

I started off the day with Kristen and her lovely ladies who were some of the most helpful bridesmaids I’ve had.  Crazy sweet and ensuring that all day Kristen was taken care off.  I love when my brides are pampered!!  They were easy to get along with and the rest of the day flowed like that.  The weather was perfect, the wedding went perfectly – the entire day went off without a hitch or an issue!  It isn’t often I can say that – usually there’s at least one glitch in the day!

Congratulations to you two!!!

Kristen’s family owns the Anderson Coach and Travel line so instead of hiding the bus in the images we made sure they were featured in quite a few!

I loved this goody bag for the cookie table!  Have I mentioned I am a huge fan of the cookie table???  I am.  YUM!  The caterers made me take a few home and they were my snack on the drive home.  SO so so so good.

There are so many things I wish were popular when we got married in 2007 and this may be one of the top contenders, the thumbprint tree!  I love it!  This one at the end of the night looked so lovely too!
