Christina & Kurt's Wedding
Christina and Kurt tied the knot with a beautiful chic farm wedding at their home in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania, underneath a pergola they built themselves.
The biggest part of this day for them was sharing it with their family. Christina's 108-year-old grandmother was in attendance in the front row. And their dog enjoyed the reception and bonding with guests. (She totally thought it was her party) Their emotional vows had me in tears. The food was some of the best I've ever had at a wedding. Also, the ring bearer fell in the koi pond, but hey, he is a-okay.
Christina is an event planner, so she pulled out all the stops to make this wedding be-a-utiful.

Christina and Kurt set up this beautiful arch and requested I take photos of their guests as they arrive. This was an extra special part of the day and a great way to capture all of their family.
THAT IS ONE HAPPY GROOM.
During the ceremony, they lit a candle in memory of Kurt's father. It was a beautiful emotional gesture.
The ceremony wouldn't be complete without their loving pup, Hope.
There Asher is, soaking wet. Sorry bud! Don't worry, two minutes later he was changed and laughing again. (I think he just wanted to break up the seriousness of formal portraits... Just kidding. But in ten years, they'll be telling him this story. The photo was a must)
From the best man's speech: "There are a handful of moments in life that for whatever reason we recognize as truly meaningful. Sometimes that is obvious in the moment. That moment is now. Perhaps it is the confluence of circumstances and maybe desire. That perfect recipe has been assembled here. I am privileged to have been a part of the meaningful events of today..."
Two years ago, the groom’s father passed away after a battle with cancer. He had a quirk of always drinking warm beer without flinching, no matter how gross everyone else thought it was. It could be ninety degrees and the beer would be sitting out in its can and he’d drink it.
During the reception, the groom’s son pulled the Schnieders men aside with a case of warm Yuengling to toast to grandpa. It was such a surprising and touching way for the men to remember their dad and grandpa on Kurt’s wedding day, just a little way for them to honor him. There were a lot of laughs, and some tears too for an unforgettable man.
