 We’re really excited to share this week’s Real Wedding, it’s definitely one of a kind. On the surface it looks like any other wedding, a beautiful bride, handsome groom, stunning location; but the twist to this romantic tale is the photographer. Award winning and celebrity photographer Joy Marie, known for capturing the most unique weddings across the world, photographed the entire day using a Nokia Lumia smartphone! With an elegant boutique style, this wedding is just breathtaking.  Take your time this week; you’re not going to want to miss a thing.

Bride and Groom… Crista and Chris

We met… Through a mutual friend in Corona Del Mar, CA

We knew it was ‘the one’…  Chris “When she asked me to marry her, I’m just kidding”  I knew soon after we met. We both had all the same goals and vision of how we wanted life to be”

Length of engagement… 1 year

My wedding dress… Was by Reem Acra. I chose the dress after I bought my wedding shoes. The shoes were absolutely beautiful and I knew that I needed to show them off so that’s how I created my wedding dress. I purchased a beautiful gown by Reem Acra and ended up altering the dress by cutting off the front of the gown making it a hi-lo gown. It turned out just perfect after days of alterations

Our wedding ceremony and reception was…  At Capella Pedregal in Cabo, Mexico.  We had 35 guests. The best part was seeing our son walk the aisle and of course when I first saw Crista, she looked so beautiful.

For the ceremony… I recommend that you write your own vows. This was an incredibly special and intimate moment that we shared with each other, one I will remember for life. Truly was one of the everlasting memories that I took away from our wedding day.
