From the Photographer:
I absolutely loved that these two incorporated pieces of their families traditions and heirlooms into their wedding day! Christine wore her grandmother’s heirloom bracelet, toasted with Kenneth’s parents’ wedding day champagne glasses and also took part in the New Orleans tradition of doing a second line into their reception, complete with the cute umbrellas! But making their own traditions, Christine gifted Kenneth a watch and a book full of notes for him to read that he absolutely LOVED and they did a first look where they saw each other before their ceremony! Kenneth had been nervous and anxious to see his bride and you could tell that as soon as he turned around, he instantly felt better because there, right before him, was his bride!!! His puzzle piece. They spent time just hugging, talking and simply being together on their wedding day.
They also made time to be with their loved ones all throughout the day. Christine got ready with her sisters and bridesmaids. Her mother and mother-in-law both helped her get in her dress. And her parents even walked her to her First Look! During their reception, Christine & Kenneth took the time to thank both of their grandmothers for truly being the rocks to hold their families together for so many years.
What a beautiful family centered wedding to start a beautiful marriage!
