We started the day off at Wisteria salon and spa, where Kristen and all the girls were having their hair and makeup done. It was clear from the moment we saw her that Kristen was just plain excited to be marrying Justin. After hair and makeup was done (beautifully, by the way!!) we headed to the Greenville Marriott for lunch and some more photo opportunities.
Then, time to get married!
The ceremony was held in the beautiful sanctuary at Mauldin United Methodist church. The reception followed back at the Marriott. And if you haven’t been there since the recent renovations, the Marriott is gorgeous, with unique colored lighting in the lobby and ballrooms. (It reminded me of those elaborate weddings you see on TV where people actually hire a company to design the lighting of the reception.)
The day was definitely full of emotion! When Kristen and her dad danced to “It won’t be like this for long” by Darius Rucker, I was trying to hold back the tears. But when it came time to party, I have to say this group knew how to have fun! The dance floor was packed all night and this crowd knew how to boogie! It was obvious that everyone had a fantastic time celebrating Kristen and Justin beginning their lives together.
Let us know what you think of the photos, we hope you enjoy!
