I made my fair share of boneheaded choices as a young boy. My dad looked on at these choices and commented on them without coming on too strong. Jokingly, he often asked the question: “What, were you born in a barn?” Well, Khrystina and Cole, may not have been born in a barn. But they were most definitely married in one: Crawford’s Barn. Definitely not a boneheaded choice.I had captured these two lovebirds’ engagement photos several months before on a warm summer evening. It was there that I heard their story of meeting back in the earliest days of school, and how their relationship progressed through the years. I discovered their love for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, as evidenced by the LOTR scrabble tiles they used to spell out “Love” in their photos (nice!). Their easy sense of humor and gentleness were a breath of fresh air. Clearly, their wedding would be a blast.
And so the Big Day came. Khrystina and Cole were to be married on the grounds at Crawford’s Barn in Sacramento, named after a famous race horse who once called the barn home. When the forecast spelled rain, our heroes quickly shifted gears to move their ceremony inside the barn itself. They were calm and collected, and you wouldn’t have known by looking at them that they had to make some last-minute moves to keep their loved ones dry. Nothing would stop them from loving their unforgettable day.
So why not sneak a peek into the rest of their wedding day?
So many blessings to you both, Khrystina and Cole, as you step into this incredible adventure. Keep on being just a flexible, gentle, and funny as you proved to me you are. And thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day.
