Eric & Kristopher’s Wedding

Washington natives, Eric and Kris, met in college over the mutual liking of Dungeons & Dragons. Not long after they married on a beautiful June day at the Estate’s pond side location. Their friends and family watched as the couple walked down the aisle with violins and other acoustics playing to say ‘I do’.  While at the reception, the couple used candles over flowers to create a romantic glow as they danced to their first song ‘Fly Me to The Moon’ by Frank Sinatra at their simple but elegant wedding.  The couple sat down to answer their favorite parts of their heart-felt special day.
