Hledik Wedding // Christina & Michael // The Springs Edmond
I met Christina for coffee last year when she inquired about a photographer for her wedding and I can honestly say that within the first few minutes of meeting her, I knew we would become great friends! She was giddy about her upcoming wedding and planned so many details that had deep meaning, I knew that her & Michael's day would be special! A few months later when we took engagement photos, we had so much fun that I found myself counting down the days until their wedding day! As you can see from the photos below, their wedding was a total dream! Every detail was planning beautifully and Christina & Michael exuded joy throughout the entire day! Christina wore a custom dress by Truvelle from the lovely ladies at Chantilly Couture in OKC. Her florals were stunningly created by Lauren of Forth and Floral. The cakes were made by Christina & her mom and the delicious cookies were made by 1 Smart Cookie, a bakery that her family owns (Christina is an awesome cookie decorator!) I asked Christina & Michael to answer a few questions about her day for this blog, read on for her answers:
What was your favorite part of the planning process?
Christina - "My favorite part was seeing everything come together on the wedding day! I had an idea of what I wanted to accomplish with the look of the wedding, but I couldn't picture it all at once. Once everything was et up, I definitely felt like it was perfect!"
What is your favorite memory from the wedding day?
Christina - "My favorite memory was definitely seeing Michael before the wedding. He was blindfolded! That moment before the ceremony was seriously so special to us. We got to get away from the craziness of the day and just embrace the moment!"
Michael - "My favorite memory was waiting for Christina to walk down the aisle. I kept wanting to catch a glimpse of her while the bridesmaid walked down! It was a long walk for her to get to me, but when the time finally came, my initial view of her was blocked by the guests as they stood up (that drove me crazy)! I didn't see her entirely until she was directly in front of me. We had a blindfolded first look before the ceremony, so my emotions were definitely all over the place when I finally saw her in her dress. There was so much anticipation to see my bride!"
Any advice to future brides?
Christina - "Do as much ahead of time as possible! We cut a bunch of the planning details pretty close! But also, try to be present on your wedding day. It's so easy to get caught up in the craziness and not enjoy it! You've worked hard for this day! You want to remember it!"
What do you think about your photos?
Christina - "My wedding photos are PERFECT! They are everything I dreamed of and match my style beautifully! :)"
