Nick and Krystle’s easy-going personalities really showed through in their wedding design. Picnic blankets, wild plants, candles, and handmade touches really brought a cozy feel to this backyard wedding in Richmond, VA. The couple incorporated the bride’s Hawaiian roots by participating in a pig roast, which catered an authentic meal for their guests. We love this bohemian, laid-back style that photographer Ash Carr so perfectly captured!
Nick and Krystle
Private Residence, Richmond, Virginia
We like to think of ourselves as a very relaxed and low-key couple. We enjoy picnicking, all things vintage, organic, and re-purposed. We love to be creative and wanted our wedding to reflect that. Naturally, a vintage-bohemian vibe was the essence of our wedding. We planned the majority of our wedding and sourced all the decor from thrift and vintage shops. Nick made mini pallet tables for the reception. We wanted a very neutral color palette for our wedding day fashion. We left it up to our bridal party to pick the color and their own outfits. It was important to us that they wore something that they would wear again. Nick bought his groomsmen vintage ties and pocket squares he found, and I bought my bridesmaids layered necklaces to go with their dresses.
Our favorite wedding moment was saying our vows to each other. We wrote our own vows, and it was a really beautiful moment where we felt that it was just us, expressing our love for one another without worrying about anyone else or anything going on behind the scenes. Of course it was a real tear jerker. Another favorite moment of mine is Nick dancing in the field with an umbrella and a bottle of bourbon just being so carefree.
The Couple Recommends:
Our photographer, Ash Carr, captured our day beautifully. She is such a doll with so much talent and patience. Our day of coordinator, Kelly Harrison of The Wedding Rabbit, was a life saver. We hired her 6 days before our big day and really helped us tie up loose ends and organize. These gals helped us make our day really special and I am so grateful they were apart of our day.
