These two-of-a-kind lovers share tightly knit families, an infectious zest for life, and an affinity for beer and motorcycles. Their wedding day was a perfect collaboration of lives, offbeat to perfection, and set in the coolest city on earth.
Krystal and Kirk have shared a narrative as part of each other's lives since childhood. They dated as teens, then went their separate ways for a few years. Then in 2013, as fate would have it, they rekindled their romance for keeps. October 14, 2016: The glorious autumn wedding day was as warm and welcoming as the couple themselves. Caleb and I were greeted by the pair and their gracious wedding party with hugs and offers to help carry our gear. By the end of the day, we felt like two more of the family. So much genuine emotion was shared by everyone, we couldn't help but get caught up in the excitement of the celebration. It was the kind of day we could live over and over again. Here's a little window into the first day of many in Krystal & Kirk's happily ever after.
