We had the wonderful opportunity to capture Devin & Kristi's wedding at the Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. It was a venue unlike any other which made it more special for them to tie the knot. When I walked into the ballroom, it had a really grand feel to it. There was so much detail in the walls and ceilings as well as the intricate crown moldings that made this place quite a remarkable venue to get married.
Devin and Kristi are amazing people individually but even more amazing together. They are opposite and yet compliment each other. Devin is emotionally expressive, will give the shirt off his back to someone in need and a big teddy bear. Kristi on the other hand is thoughtful, kind, giving, intelligent and competitive.
On the morning of the proposal, Devin did not have the ring yet. So, he prayed. If the ring didn't come, Devin was to wait another month to propose. His prayers were answered as the ring came in the mail that morning! Whew!
Meanwhile, Kristi thought that she was planning a birthday party for her dad but she was actually planning for her own engagement party. Sensing her stress, Devin picked her up to drive to the hill where he was going to pop the question. Kristi didn't realize it at first but it finally clicked when she saw the chairs and table with purple roses (her favorite). There, Devin read her a poem he wrote, knelt down on one knee and ask her to be his wife!
On the wedding day, all their closest friends were there to celebrate with them. It was a packed place and to see Devin and Kristi do their first kiss was quite touching. Both have grown in their relationship, not only with each other but also the other people they've impacted with their lives.
Thank you Devin & Kristi for allowing us to capture your special day. We wish you many years of happiness in your marriage!
