Krystal has taken the Throne! (Name, that is...) and she was an absolutely stunning bride as you'll see in the photos below. The bride & her bridesmaids sang along with their favorite teen Disney music as they had their hair & makeup beautifully done in their hotel suite, and I'm pretty sure she & her sister missed their calling to be in the cast of High School Musical. It didn't surprise me at all to hear that she & Zach shared their first kiss on stage and he is still very much involved in acting & theatre. This couple was so much fun to be around. One of the highlights of their reception was a game called "The Shoe Game" where they sat in chairs with their backs to one another and each held one of HIS shoes and one of HER shoes. For each statement made by the best man they had to raise one of the shoes to show who better fits the statement. "Well, if the shoe fits...." had a literal meaning and it was very entertaining to watch. We learned who the better cook is (Krystal) and who is the better driver (Zach). Some were a bit tricky, and some may still be up for debate. ;-) I hope you enjoy the highlights from their wedding day as much as I enjoyed being there to capture them! Read on to see more:
The bride & groom did not want to see each other before their ceremony, but she did want to give him a gift in person. So they stood out of sight around the corner from each other while she passed him these "Game of Thrones" cuff links.
And these diamond earrings were a gift from him the day before. Nice job, Zach!
When the pastor takes as long as possible to speak the words, "You.....may now..... kiss......your.....BRIDE" and when he's finally held them in suspense long enough, the groom decides to reach for a breath mint.
To the new Mr. & Mrs. Throne- thank you for letting me share in the love & laughter of your wedding day! You are a fabulous couple and I doubt you'll ever face a dull moment together! All the best to you & your beautiful family.
