Despite already sharing friends and an Alma Mater, it was a chance encounter at a coffee shop that finally brought Kristen and Jason together. A magical first date ended with a waltz in the rain on a country hilltop, and from the first kiss, both of them knew they'd found their 'One'. Four months later, on that same hilltop, Jason asked Kristen to be his wife and RYAN PRICE PHOTOGRAPHY documented the day. The couple, together with a host of family and friends, planned a wedding that combined their bohemian and vintage styles perfectly, resulting in a Gatsby boho garden fairytale, filled with succulents, stargazer lilies, music, and love. Kristen wore a Sottero & Midgley embroidered gold lace dress; Jason looked as if he'd stepped from the pages of a 1920s magazine. Once the personal vows had been exchanged, the couple took to the dancefloor for another waltz - this time as man and wife.
The couple tell us, "In this day and age, there is so much pressure to be unique. While that's all good and fine, do what makes you happy on your day. Clich s are ok. Doing something crazy and out there is ok too! Make it yours. Make it something that you both will look back on in awe and gratitude. Also, remember that years after the wedding, when no one but you looks at the photos and recalls the day, your marriage will be what remains. Make it good. Don't spend more time prepping for your wedding than you do prepping for your marriage."
