Ryan & Karissa: Ice Cream Church Wedding

In November, I ended my wedding season with this pretty purple ice cream church wedding! I love calling it that! So many things I love in one sentence! Haha! But seriously, Ryan and Karissa had a lovely wedding day. I adored all the purple details, the wedding monogram, the delicious ice cream bar, the overall classic feel. Let alone, I just love these families! I had the privilege of photographing Ryan's sister's wedding last May, and there is nothing more flattering being asked to capture a family twice! 

As I wrote in their engagement session post, Ryan & Karissa are just two of the sweetest people who love each even more sweetly. They opted to do a first look before their ceremony and I don't know if I've even seen anyone kiss as much as they did! But I LOVED it! I am all about some PDA on a wedding day ( ;) <3 ). Their ceremony was decorated with lots of twinkle lights, tulle, and lanterns: it was magical. And the reception space was just as lovely with so many unique touches like a kids table, scrapbook area, and ice cream bar. Karissa did such an amazing job making it a beautiful, fun day for all their guests!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their day. It was such an honor getting to see and mingle with their families again!
