Denny and Krista planned their wedding on their own and were able to pick out every little detail for the big day. Since they have been to countless weddings in the eight years they’ve been together, the duo was able to see what they loved and didn’t love. After visiting Succop Nature Park, they fell in love with the venue, and it’s gorgeous scenery.
The wedding party, consisting of their closest family and friends, all got ready inside the beautiful mansion at the venue. Denny and Krista’s self-uniting ceremony took place right outside of the mansion. Krista and her bridesmaids walked down the aisle to violin and cello music, and it was perfect. After their ceremony, all of the guests moved back into the mansion for drinks and appetizers while the bride, groom, and wedding party were off being photographed by photographer Oakwood Photo + Video.
They started off their reception by cutting their wedding cake, lemon cake with blueberry compote. Yum! After cutting the cake, the bride, groom, & wedding party made their grand entrance into the pavilion. Toasts were given by the best man & maid of honor and ended with an excellent Joey Tribbiani quote from the show Friends.
After dinner, Denny & Krista kicked off the party with the Newlywed Game and used cut-out pictures of their faces rather than shoes. They then followed up with their first dance, starting with Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ and switched over to a choreographed dance to Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, and Rick Rolled all of their guests.
The party was nothing short of amazing. There was tons of dancing, glow sticks, and yard games for all of their guests to enjoy. Even Krista’s 86-year-old grandma busted a move! Their final dance and ending to a perfect night was to Joe Cocker’s ‘A Little Help From Our Friends’.
Every aspect of Denny & Krista’s wedding showed off their personalities, from the dinosaur cake toppers and escort cards to the vintage-inspired centerpieces.
Thanks for stopping by!
