The wedding that was once described to us by Kirsten as campy turned out to be one of the most genuine celebrations of love we have ever had the privilege to attend. Their wedding set just outside of OU's campus in Athens OH was truly a labor of love, both by Kirsten and Dave and by their closest family and friends. Everything in this wedding was created, arranged, and orchestrated by this lovely couple including decorations, seating, reception music (which included a performance by Dave and Kirsten's old band of a song written by Dave), flowers and even Kira's dress. Even their wedding bands were handmade by Dave himself.
It's been such a pleasure getting to know this couple over the last year. What had started out as a chance encounter on OU's campus last summer turned into an opportunity to work with one a uniquely lovely couple. And as luck has had it Kirsten has turned out to be an amazing photographer herself whom we've somehow convinced to help us out with a few weddings this year.
The genuine outpouring of emotions and thoughtful words spoken by Kirsten and Dave and their loved ones made this both a tough and easy edit for us. Tough to narrow down all of the wonderful words, but easy to not get bored by having to watch them over and over again.
