We love a good love story like Sean and Kristina’s. We also are loving all the details that went into planning this wedding… just wait until you see the photos, a true floral dream! The alpacas were also such a sweet meaningful memory for their wedding day.
The Love Story
In June 2017, Sean and I met through a dating app called Bumble where the girl makes the first move; I sent him a video clip of Kevin from the Office spilling his pot of chili, and Sean was hooked.
Our first date was at a local bar in Houston, TX. I got there early and hid in a corner to make sure he wasn’t a catfish, and partly to check him out. Those who know Sean know that he’s never on time, but lucky for me he was worth the wait!
I knew Sean was the one when he surprised me with a trip to an alpaca farm for my 26th birthday. Tears were shed. I had only mentioned my love for alpacas a few times in passing. It is still one of the sweetest and most thoughtful things a man has ever done for me. So it was only fitting we had alpacas come celebrate our big day!
Why They Choose The Chandelier
We chose the Chandelier as our venue because it was the perfect mix of hill country with touches of elegance. Also, I am a sucker for a beautiful white chapel and The Chandelier was on my mind the moment I saw it online.
The best part about being a Chandelier couple was getting to meet and work with such sweet people. Everyone was so accommodating and flexible with visits and me being out of town. Y’all made me feel very relaxed on the big day.
Obviously reading our vows privately and the entire ceremony – it all felt like an out of body experience. My brother officiated the wedding was pretty special as well.
A lighter, funny moment I’ll never forget is at the reception when my 3 year old niece Hayden came up to me to ask, “Kristina, did you see the surprise cake they made you?” She grabbed my hand and we ran across the dance floor to see the “surprise” cake I had “no idea about”. Ha ha! Too funny.
Their Best Advice
I loved getting to share this experience with my mom. Although we did butt heads a time or two (love you mom), I’m so glad she got to be a part of it.
All Together Now
Thank you to everyone that helped make this truly the best day of Sean and I’s life so far. We felt so loved and are just grateful to have had so many loved ones all in one place. I’ll end this with my favorite verse from our ceremony, which makes me cry every time I read it, and is a great representation of our love:
“I didn’t fall in love with you. I walked into love with you, with my eyes wide open, choosing to take every step along the way. I do believe in fate and destiny, but I also believe we are only fated to do the things that we’d choose anyway. And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.

We adore this quote and love how sentimental their wedding day was. Plus, the floral… an absolute spring wedding dream!
