Kristen and Sean are married!

So... funny story, y'all! Two summers ago, back in 2018, my best friend got married at Old Coon Creek Inn. I was the maid of honor and thought, "Man, I wish I could come back here again and photograph a wedding for real."

When I found out Kristen and Sean were getting married here, I knew that a silent prayer had been answered.

Old Coon Creek Inn is run by the sweetest couple. Jill, one of the owners, pulled me aside and said, "You look familiar. Have you been here before?" She laughed once I explained the story and said to give my best to my best friend and her husband.

It was also hot as heck both times I've been here. We were all sweating buckets and crowding around fans and said, "Thank God for the air conditioning in the bridal house!"

Kristen and Sean added the perfect touches to their special day. They opted for a private, personal vow reading instead of a first look before their ceremony, and I'd be a liar if I said we all didn't have tears in our eyes at some point. And, if you ever need anyone to clear a room and get everyone to go hang out somewhere else — I'm your girl! All those years of management in fast food really do come in handy sometimes. ;)

They even included the "Mawwiage" speech from The Princess Bride during their ceremony. Everyone busted into laughter and applause and it was so amazing.

Look back on Kristen and Sean's Burlington engagement session right here.
