Erin and Chris had a perfect spring garden wedding at the Irongate Garden Inn this past weekend. Their closest family and friends gathered to support them as they exchanged their vows in the luscious green garden. The officiant was a family friend and also the father of the Maid of Honor. Erin and Chris had family members and longtime friends standing by their side at the altar. As they exchanged their vows, every single person in the garden had loving smiles. You can view Erin and Chris’s engagement session here.
Erin and Chris first met while they were in nursing school. Chris then proposed to Erin in Fort Bragg on a mountain biking excursion. You can just feel the love between Erin and Chris as they giggle and play off one another. Chris’ mother said it best in her toast to the newlyweds, “Erin and Chris have a playful relationship, and this will help guide them through any challenging times brought their way”.
Erin and Chris, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special wedding day. You were lucky to have such wonderful weather and the golden sunshine witness your May wedding. Each and every guest was kind, joyful, and supportive of your union into marriage. I could not have imagined a better wedding day for the two of you. I am excited for you to see some of my many favorites from your wedding day at the Irongate Garden Inn.
Fun Fact: Erin and I were friends in high school, and we played many years of softball together. This was more than just a wedding to me, it was thrilling to be present with Erin and her family on her wedding day.
