On a gorgeous day in March, Krystina and Will tied the knot at The Hamilton Manor. Krystina and Will had been dreaming of their wedding day at the The Hamilton Manor! It is a gorgeous venue with multiple stunning ceremony locations and photography spots. From the ballroom to the barnyard doors, this venue has so much to offer.
“Our wedding day was absolutely magical. We wanted something very rustic, but elegant at the same time and The Hamilton Manor was the perfect venue for that. We always talked about doing various shades of blue as color palate with lots of greenery to compliment. Very soft, clean and airy.”
Krystina and her girls got ready at The Beauty Room. Can we talk about how stunning Krystina looked on her wedding day?! Beverly did a beautiful job with Krystina’s makeup. She used natural tones that emphasized her beauty and left her glowing. Bonnie styled Krystina’s hair falling over her shoulders with the front pieces tucked to the back of her head. All of the girls looked amazing. After a couple quick photos of the girls outside salon, it was time to get Krystina in her wedding gown. The dress is the Dakota by Hayley Paige and it was STUNNING with all of its detail and layers. She paired her dress with sparkling Mayra by Jewel Badgley Mischka shoes. Krystina had all her details ready for us, and of course we were obsessed with photographing her Cascade Queen Designs florals and jewelry. I mean who wouldn’t be obsessed, they were so pretty!! Krystina and Will kept their florals very simple for their wedding day. They stuck with just bouquets, boutonnieres, and flowers on the cake. Krystina adds: “When we discovered Cascade Queen Designs, I knew that was the route we were going to go. Dana makes her designs from wood but they look SO REAL. We wanted neutral colors and lot of greenery to compliment our style. And as a bonus they will last forever!”
Time to head off to The Hamilton Manor!!
“We kept to decorating the space very simple. We used lanterns with twinkle lights and eucalyptus petals spread around them for décor… We also used lots of pictures of the two of us throughout our relationship to make it personal. Our seating arrangement was a DIY project that I fell in love with when I was looking up inspiration on Pinterest and it was very easy to make. I purchased templates off of Etsy with a greenery design to match the rest of the décor and made a variety of signage that we needed for certain areas. One of our favorites signs was our signature drink sign where we were able to include a picture of our dog to have a little part of her with us there.”
With such an airy and soft palette of color, we found gorgeous details throughout the venue, including lanterns and a ton of greenery.
What was the most anticipated or special moment of your wedding day?
“My grandma recently passed away late last year right before my cousins wedding, and as a gift my cousin had pieces of my grandmothers dress made into flowers and put into our bouquets. I kept this flower and incorporated it into my bridal bouquet to have a little piece of her there with me. Most anticipated was definitely our first look! We were both very excited and nervous at the same time to finally be able to see each other on our big day! It was a very special moment for us.” – Krystina
Their wedding ceremony could not have been anymore perfect. One of their best friends, Steven Santos-Matias, married the couple and it was a magical moment witnessed by all. After a ton of kisses, Krystina and Will walked down the aisle hand-in-hand as their loved ones cheered them on. It was truly wonderful! After the ceremony Krystina and Will took a shot together…. then it was time to party! Inside the ballroom at The Hamilton Manor, Chris Marino of Limelight Entertainment was ready to entertain their guests. Krystina and Will’s first dance was magical and their dances with their parents were very emotional. Such great moments!
Some advice from the happy couple:
“Enjoy the entire process and celebrate the little moments, whether it’s booking your venue or finally deciding on flowers. Every moment is so special and you want to remember them. Take time throughout the night for just the two of you. One of our favorite moments was our personal cocktail hour, where we were able to sit with each other with no interruptions and just talk about the day and how happy we were. As for marriage advice – never go to bed angry at each other. That’s something we’ve always felt strongly about and really makes a difference.” – Krystina and Will
Krystina and Will, thank you so much for choosing Limelight Entertainment to not only photograph and entertain your magical day, but to also give us the opportunity to capture it all on video! We had a wonderful time celebrating your love with you and your guests.
