When Hospitality People Party

Kristen and Stephen are in the restaurant business, as are many of their dearest pals, so not only was their ceremony a celebration of their marriage and the beginning of their lives together, it was a party hosted by folks who know how to deliver fun. They chose Walnut Hill as the venue and it’s always a great choice. It’s historic, with both indoor and outdoor settings and a favorite place for Premier Party Planners’ brides to say I Do. 

Don’t let their serene expressions fool you. These two are FUN! 
They are also in love, and in late October of 2019, they made it official. Kristen wore a creamy gown and carried a gorgeous autumnal arrangement and Stephen wore a three-piece charcoal suit. They and their wedding parties looked pretty dapper. Even in the fall, the skies cooperated for some great shots of the couple and their attendants. 

The Ceremony

The ceremony got out of hand unexpectedly.

Kidding. The “altar fight” was just an example of this groups’ sense of prepared calamity and fun. The outdoor ceremony was actually more peaceful, serene and private.

The Party

Add an arbor that is laden with flowers and tulle, barrels overflowing with floral arrangements, crisp white chairs in rows and the sighs and laughs of friends and family and you’re 90% there.

These two, surrounded by their besties and beloved families, celebrated late into evening and were sent off with loads of love. Congratulations Kristen and Stephen! Here’s to decades of happy marital bliss.
