I Do: Kristina + Johnny | Marcus Hook Baptist Church, Linwood, PA
Kristina and Johnny have a contagious kind of love that is hard to miss. We did their first look at a scenic pond at Bellevue State Park, which is located in Wilmington, Delaware. I feel so lucky to be able to witness such sweet moments between couples. Smiles and laughter turned into stillness and hugging and just taking a moment to appreciate each other.
We walked around for portraits at Bellevue Hall, an amphitheater, and a dilapidated greenhouse before meeting up with the bridal party at a green barn. The bridesmaids rented dresses from Little Borrowed Dress and made their own floral crowns, both of which looked amazing together.
The ceremony took place at the family church, which was filled with DIY decorations and a natural wood arch strung with Moroccan lanterns from Fresh Designs Florist. It was the perfect backdrop for the ceremony, which was open to the entire church and officiated by Kristina’s father.
Kristina’s sisters performed a three song wedding mashup to “I Wanna Grow Old With You,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” and “L-O-V-E.” I was so obsessed with their medley that I may or may not have stalked a rehearsal version on YouTube and listened to it on repeat while editing their wedding photos.
To summarize: I want this family to adopt me so we can spend the summer singing around a campfire, making goofy faces, and eating s’mores. They made me feel so at home, I can’t thank them enough for welcoming me with open arms. It’s always nice to come home to friend requests and Instagram follows from the couple’s family.
Y’all make me smile. Now, here are some of my favorite moments, which will no doubt make strangers crush on you as well.
