"Your lives have been marked by great achievement, but I think your greatest achievement and the thing that will mean the most to you in your lifetime is the fact that you have found each other." The words of Kirsten's father captured the essence and spirit of this couple's journey and the beginning of their story as husband and wife together.
In early August in Lincoln, MA Kirsten and Christopher got ready in separate rooms with all their bridesmaids and groomsmen. As Christopher read a personal letter written by his wife to be, Kirsten and her girls were primping and making life long memories together.
Christopher and Kirsten said their I dos in a beautiful church in front of friends and family. The couple did not do a first look before the ceremony- the first time they saw each other was Kirsten's first steps down the aisle.
After the blissful wedding, the party got started at The Pierce House, a gorgeous 1900 century mansion nestled in the Lincoln countryside. Food, drinks, yard games and lots of mingling among guests got the sunny afternoon off to a great start. While friends and family mingled, the bridal party took formals over on the side lawn with the picturesque scenery.
All the speeches were heartfelt and memorable; brothers, bridesmaids and parents all went up, told stories, gave their blessings and wished the happy couple of life of bliss and longevity. One of Christopher's brothers wrapped up the toast with this complement, "One particular career, if you will, that Chris will really exceed in after today, it would be Kirsten's husband. We are pretty darn sure you have the resume to excel at that."
Dancing, viking hats, sunglasses, sandals and mad dance offs all made their appearances after dinner and speeches. Guest also were able to take their own photos in a photo booth that was set up all night with props and print out of pictures. Fun and laughter was had by all and dancing lasted late into the night.
