November 11, 2011 | Interlachen Country Club
Kristin and Mike were married in a sweet outdoor ceremony at Interlachen Country Club. Kristin’s theme for the wedding was something along the lines of “Jessica Simpson meets Pride and Prejudice and had a Twlight baby”. With soft pink, creamy ivory and a hint of gray, their wedding had the romance and spunk of a young sweet couple in love.
Kristin spoiled her bridesmaids with lots of beautiful gifts – like their floral bridesmaids robes.
But one of our favorite moments was when this self-proclaimed Daddy’s girl got the wedding toast of a lifetime – paying homage to the new man in her life. He had a few surprises up his sleeve….
I’m super excited to share Kristin and Mike’s wedding this morning – and I know she’s been anxiously awaiting her blog post! So hopefully I make her proud :)

Kristin put a spin on the bride’s gown hanger and bought custom hangers for her bridesmaids in their nicknames!
On the left, a custom pin that Kristin wore was actually collected from her parent’s house and melted together, to take a bit of her past on to her future.
The “books” are actually boxes for the bridesmaids robes!
Mike’s present to Kristin was a silver charm bracelet with a horseshoe charm.
Since Kristin was known to be a bit “touchy” with her dress, her bridesmaids made her white “bridal gloves” to wear while she got dressed!
Quite possibly the windiest day in Florida ever!
Kristin’s dad had the best toast ever…. surprising everyone with a little strip show!
Ok, maybe he just took his jacket off – but he revealed his “Ode to Mike”….
And then presented Mike with a little book to help him get through the next few years… (i.e. the rest of his life)
By far, Kristin’s party topped our “favorite receptions” – with lots of fun props (being used in our photobooth, and on the dance floor)!
It goes downhill from here (but in SUCH a fun way!)
At the end of the night, Kristin and Mike shared a last dance on the dance floor while everyone else went outside for the exit.
This is a sad bride because her wedding was over…
And keep an eye out – because when I get back from Australia, I’ll be posting their hysterical PhotoBooth shots! Here’s a sneak…
