Chelsea Q. White Photography brings us a sweet and endearing wedding piece of David and Kristina in Texas on 3rd of April. Held in Roseland Wedding Chapel, this venue had that all white architecture that chimes in line with a wedding. Some navy and turquoise were incorporated into the decor and stationary as well, adding an extra doze of romance.
David and Kristina knew each other in high school but only became friends once they were in college. With a friendship bond as a base, they continued on dating and after 5 years they are now ready for marriage! Kristina has always been inspired by vintage style. She had worked for a wedding favor company before and with the abundance of information found online, even the most enchanting ideas were not foreign to her.
Roseland Wedding Chapel was the very first venue they actually visited and in that instant, they just knew it was the place they wanted! David and Kristina love historical buildings and history so they knew this place was perfect for them.Combining inspiration from blogs online and a streak of her own creativity, she was able to create a style that was unique to them. Kristina created handmade signs, hand printed her wedding invitations on a small press, designed her save the dates, created centerpieces and table numbers. Although it was a lot of work but it turned out wonderful and this work wouldn’t have been accomplished without all the help and support from family, friends and their other half about to walk down the aisle.
Kristina’s mom gave her some items she used previously at her wedding. A small white bible was also passed down from her Grandmother’s wedding in 65. The white and blue handkerchief became “something blue” from her mother’s wedding and her mom’s pearls were hers on the wedding day. David had both of their engagement ring custom made. Kristina’s one was a diamond beauty from her grandmother who passed away from cancer when she was a child.
The most important thing for Kristina was to just enjoy the day with her new husband and family! She wanted to be able to remember the day and not get stressed out! Although throughout the day there were a few times of bottled up anxiety and frustration, but other than that she remember the day perfectly and she was so glad to be able to celebrate their marriage in front of our family and friends!
Kristina’s favorite part would have to be seeing David for the first time. The expression on his face and just sharing that moment with him is something they’ll cherish for the rest of their lives. Kristina also made him a book of over 100 things she loves about him and prayers she said for him throughout her engagement. Being able to give him that gift during that special time is something she’ll always remember and she was so thankful her photographer was able to capture it!
The first look was a meaningful moment for them but overall just being surrounded by family and friends, celebrating God’s purpose for marriage and all the love and support that was shown to them throughout the day meant so much.With that said, they’re looking forward to simply creating a life together in marriage, living their lives for God, creating and raising a family, serving together and living a lifetime together.
We wish David and Kristina all the best in their future endeavours. Stay sweet and happily married!
