I don’t believe that there is some magic equation for creating the perfect wedding day. But I know there are certain key elements that make a wedding day more memorable, more exciting, and more photogenic. If you’re taking notes, some of those crucial elements are (1) two people madly in love, (2) tons of joyful friends and family, (3) a gorgeous venue, (4) dozens of ridiculously adorable kids. Kyiia and Jeff had all of these things. And to top that, they also threw in a stress-free schedule, sunset rooftop photos, and a groom serenading his bride at the reception with a song he had written just for her. It doesn’t get any better than that.
Scott’s lucky that I don’t wear cufflinks. Because I probably would have stolen these from him.
Usually I get a little annoyed when people call attention from the bride to take pictures on their cell phones. But I make an exception for grooms. I actually love that Jeff did this. Such a cute moment!
How AWESOME are these R2-D2 cake toppers?!
This surprise dance from Kyiia and Jeff (yes, with a wardrobe change!) was amazing!
