No. 327 – Krista and Sam

Sturgis blog
Client: Krista & Sam

Date: August 15, 2015

Ceremony & Reception Location: Ryde Hotel, Walnut Grove, CA

Setting: The Ryde Hotel provided a picturesque garden setting for Krista and Sam’s I Do’s. The shady gazebo ceremony site would have been perfect if only the temps hadn’t exceeded 100 degrees yesterday! There were a lot of tissues being used throughout the ceremony. Sam would probably say it was to wipe the sweat, but I suspect there were a few tears being wiped too!

The Happy Couple: Krista and Sam have been dating since 2011 and despite living 89 miles (or 1 hour and 49 minutes) apart they managed to make a long distance relationship work. They both spoke of the Sunday night goodbyes during their vows and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

Good idea! Krista has a strong musical background so song choices were really important to her. I particularly liked her Beatles processional playlist — “All You Need is Love” as the parents entered, “A Little Help From My Friends” for the bridal party, and “Here Comes the Sun” for her entrance.

Best Line: Sam began his personal vows with a great line — “Krista, I knew there was something different about you…you had a flip phone!” Check it out:
