Rustic, romantic touches complemented the nautical décor at one couple's summer nuptials.
Kristin and Michael's magical Long Island wedding took the bride more than a year to plan. "I lived and breathed this day for exactly a year and four months. This is no exaggeration," she jokes. "Just ask Mike!"
From the moment Michael dropped to one knee inside the couple's apartment to the seconds before Kristin walked the aisle at St. Peters Church of Alcantara, the bride scrutinized and selected every detail to create an affair that was "a reflection of us as a couple," Kristin says. "Part of my day job is planning and executing events. Obviously, this was the biggest and most important event I ever planned, so it weighed heavy on my heart."Photo: Mackler Studios
