A rainy wedding day can either get you down or you can bask in its beauty giving you the most stunning wedding-day images, which is just what this couple did! Kristin and Brady planned a simple yet charming wedding day, best described by the bride as rustic. With her hands on every detail of the day, from the paper goods, to the dusty rose and navy color palette, to the charming florals, we are swooning over the images from their day beautifully captured by [trinjensen photography].
















FROM THE BRIDE: The wedding day was cold and rainy, but our wedding party and all persons involved were awesome and rolled with the punches. The most important part to me, both at the ceremony and the reception venue, was that Brady and I, along with our guests felt comfortable. I didn’t want anything to be “too fancy” where people felt like they couldn’t sit back, relax and enjoy themselves. My favorite memory was walking down the aisle at the church. My father passed away four years ago so having my brother walk me down the aisle was very special. It was an amazing day that I would repeat all over again in a heartbeat – it was beautiful and everything Brady and I ever imagined it would be!

One of the most exciting parts of planning for our wedding was picking the destination. These days, destination weddings and honeymoons are taking place in a variety of locations, so it’s important to pick a location you will love. The laid-back atmosphere of a beach resort and the warm weather of the Caribbean really called to us.

Once we knew the type of location we were looking for, we considered cost, convenience and travel times to narrow down our location search. I like to fully research everything before I do anything so I was able to narrow down a location by finding information on 1) when the best times to travel to each location were, by considering weather + popular travel times, 2) how convenient travel to that location would be for our guests, by considering travel time + airport connections and 3) which locations really gave us the most bang for our buck.

I loved Turks & Caicos, but it wasn’t the most cost-efficient choice for our guests. Belize was another one of our top choices but meant long flight times and a long drive from the airport. We settled on Mexico because there were so many resort choices with a variety of amenities for the cost – and it couldn’t be more perfect for our wedding group!
