Christiana & Patrick decided to skip an engagement session and instead have their rehearsal dinner documented. Can we just say how much we LOVED this?? All of their closest friends and family joined them at Bistro on the Boulevard to kick off their wedding weekend in Benton Harbor, Michigan, and there was so much energy and excitement buzzing around!! Hugs and laughter in every direction we turned, delicious bites and cheerses, all in honor of a truly amazing couple. After a few spontaneous portraits and lots of mingling time, Christiana & Pat welcomed everyone to town with an amazing dinner (& dessert!) and shared their words of appreciation to everyone for making the trip to Michigan to help them celebrate. Feelings and emotions are worn right on their sleeves, and that's just part of what makes Christiana & Pat the kind of people you want to stick in your pocket and never let go!
We CANNOT WAIT to share Christiana & Pat's barn wedding with you tomorrow afternoon! Be sure to stop back because, trust us, you will not want to miss their celebration. :)
Love, Kelsy & Butch
