Christina & Mike are one of those couples that when they look at each other – you can almost feel the love between them – as if it is floating through the air as a tangible object. Christina is so so so artistic and talented and she created almost EVERYTHING for their wedding with her own two hands. Her dress was the motivation behind my very own wedding dress – buying a dress that the top was beautiful and creating your own skirt for the bottom. Michael has a smile that can brighten up any room.
From the Bride :
“Mike and I met in December of 2008 through a mutual friend. At times when I’ve met certain people in life, there has been this feeling of familiarity, a feeling that somehow lets me know that particular person is someone I was meant to meet. I don’t always know what exactly that person will come to mean to me, but I know they will be a part of my life for a long time in some capacity. I had this feeling with Mike immediately. At the time, I wasn’t looking for anything romantic so I took note of the “feeling” and we became friends.But there was just something about him that always made me want to be near him, and we quickly became inseparable and in love. Mike is one of the kindest, truest people I have ever met, he is one of those people whose heart shines right through and just draws people in, and he can always make me laugh. I think sometimes we go through things in life as people that change us and maybe make us forget how to just be happy and not so serious, and he reminded me of what that felt like and gave it back to me. He is my best friend and partner in life, and now soon to be daddy to our little girl coming in June <3 I know he will be just as amazing of a father as he is a husband and friend, and am looking forward to taking on this new life adventure together!”
Their wedding at The Brotherhood Winery was a heartfelt and beautiful dedication to one another. The decor was nothing short of the most romantic thing imaginable and there were succulents a plenty, and when the sun went down they showed that they truly know how to party.
Some highlights from their amazing DIY details:
- “~Placement card succulents made by me: most of the succulents were grown in our garden and transported with us to NY :)”
- “~Lace doilies made by me”
- “~Invitations Completely created and designed by me, no templates or kits used
- “~RSVP cards/directions/hotel info/Envelopes from staples and Diyed with gold glitter spray and stamped with a gold tree”
- “~Clutches for bridesmaids and I were completely designed and handmade by me, the metal frames were purchased from Etsy”
“Here is the picture I took out at a bar one night. I was going through some old pics about a year into our relationship and came across this one: I was snapping a picture of two friends, and who do I see peering over the shoulder of one? Haha definitely mike!…looking right at the camera- this picture was taken 7 months before we ever actually met ❤️💫 I don’t think I ever noticed the mystery person in the background then, but after being with him for a year or so, I would know those eyes anywhere ☺️”
