A romantic, warm and close-knit affair was what Kristen and Chris envisioned when they designed their evening fall wedding. They originally planned for a huge wedding, but the more they thought about it, they decided to keep things intimate. To make the night as romantic and personal as possible, they decided on a small dinner party, instead of a traditional reception. To give things a personal touch, a friend of the family provided transportation for the bride and groom in his antique Ford Model T, another baked their delicious cake, and the reception decor, stationary and bouquets were all designed by the bride herself. All of the elements came together to make the evening unforgettable and magical—not only for Kristen and Chris, but also for their friends and family.

Kristen chose her two sisters to stand next to her on her Big Day. She wore a tea-length gown; the bridesmaids wore neutral, flowing gowns by Forever 21.
