Michael and Kjerstin’s no-mirror wedding
We are super excited to share Michael and Kjerstin’s wedding today! As you may remember from their teaser post, about 6 months before the wedding was to take place, Kjerstin started a project where should would not look at herself in a mirror for one full year. That’s right, not even on her wedding day. You can read about the project on her blog, ayearwithoutmirrors.com. Well, we weren’t the only ones documenting the wedding as we photographed alongside ABC’s TV cameras. Kjerstin’s no-mirrors project is being featured in an episode 20/20 airing tonight!
Project aside, the wedding day was really a beautiful one. The setting was the gorgeous grounds of Thomas Fogarty Winery in Woodside, CA.
When the girls arrived to the bridal suite, the bridesmaids hurried to cover all the mirrors in the room.
Kjerstin wore her “something blue” on her cute little toes!
Although she went the entire day without a look at herself, you could tell she felt amazing.
While the girls were getting ready, the boys were upstairs, busy having a good time of their own.
A groomsmen enjoyed the view…
Just love this one of the bridesmaids helping Kjerstin walk to see Michael for the first time.
My favorite faces are always during the first look when the bride and groom get to see each other.
After a quick photo session, it was time to get married!
Talk about a beautiful view.
Right before the ceremony, Kjerstin’s dad still hadn’t quite finished getting ready. He couldn’t figure out how to tie his bow tie! About 8 people tried to help him tie it, but no one succeeded.
So they settled on a regular tie instead!
In lieu of a favor, each of those small manilla envelopes contained a chip, with which the guests were prompted to pick one of three charities that Michael and Kjerstin would make a donation to.
After dinner, Michael and Kjerstin went around the reception and toasted each table. One of the tables toasted them with…an actual piece of toast!
Their first dance was to “I’ll be Your Mirror”.
It was one crazy party!
Congratulations again to Michael and Kjerstin! You don’t need a mirror to see how in love these two were. (Yes, yes, I couldn’t help the cheesy pun.)
