Q: What happens when you mix a 3rd generation heirloom vintage wedding dress, a skateboarding Groom and an already established family?
A: This wedding! It was complete with a reporter from the Democrat and Chronicle newspaper, breakdancing, romance and lots of laughs.
Dan and Cristin have been together for over a decade, already have children and a home together. As you can imagine, this wedding was a long time coming and the day went perfectly. It was a gorgeous skateboarder wedding at Memorial Art Gallery with a vintage wedding dress.
I met Dan a few years ago when we both joined the Board for the Friends of the Roc City Skatepark. Their wedding officiant was our awesome Board President: the Reverend Dr. James Maddison, the DJ was the epic Tim Tones and there were several other Board members in the bridal party! A full on Roc City Skatepark affair. Complete with fancy new skate kicks for the Groomsmen from Krudco Skateshop! Even more fun was having none other than Alan Presutti as a Groomsman, my neighbor and additional photographer…
The wedding ceremony was held outdoors on the steps to the Memorial Art Gallery’s original building, and will be the last wedding here this year. Apparently, they are redoing the steps and lawn soon. It was a gorgeous location and a beautiful day for such an emotionally charged ceremony full of friends and family.
Danny has been my general contractor for a few years now, so it was a real treat for me to see his softer side and to see how adorable his family is.
I’ll let you just take a look at the teaser images to see all of the fun we had, the love shared and the epic party that ensued.
