Time to Mention The Menchens

That’s right.  They are married!  A Halloween wedding.  Oh – a beautiful day!  I honestly could not say more fantabulous things about this amazing couple.  They’ve helped me out in more ways than one.  Last October we shot their engagement pictures and they so graciously volunteered to shoot a second session for my promotional video {the one you see on the website in the Engagement section, I know, aren’t they cute!}. The “all so famous” Prodigy Video came out to shoot their wedding and we were able to, once again, work on my promotional video.  So, they wanna promote Crystal Jo Foto!  See, told you they were fantabulous!

Kristen and Rik got married at St. Matthews Catholic Church in Gahanna.  Lovely.  After the ceremony we headed over to Otterbein College {where the two love kadoodles met}.  They had an awesome wedding party that was willing to do any crazy shenanigans I asked them to {despite the fall}.   And the lovely reception was at the Worthington Doubletree.

So you wanna know my favorite fantabulous stuff at the wedding, don’t cha?

1.)  The way the brides little sister stared at her the whole entire day – it was precious.

2.)  The bridal party’s entrance.  Yes, it included a football – jerseys, war paint under their eyes and a lot of pushing, shoving, nearly tackling and the groom catching the brides “long” pass.  Fantabulous!

3.)  Guest Favors – Bottles of wine with a Crystal Jo Foto {yeah, that’s right} engagement pictures of the sweet couple as a label.

4.)  The bright flowers – holy beautiful!

5.)  Working with Prodigy Video – Nathan and team rocks your socks!

6.)  The Grooms grandparents – they won the Anniversary dance.  I can’t remember the exact number of years that they’ve been married.  I just know it was 50 +, the wife was spinning the husband in his wheelchair and everyone had tears in their eyes.  So sweet!

7.)  Kristen and Rik – you couldn’t ask for anymore love between two people.  This is called serious FANTABULOUSNESS right here.

To many more happy years, to you and your happy family!  Much love!  To view the entire gallery when they are ready for viewing, click HERE.
