Krista and Kevin met at ASU when Krista was a freshman and Kevin was a junior. The Dean of the business college asked Kevin to teach an intro to business class to incoming freshmen and Krista took his class. A year later, Kevin asked Krista out and they dated for four years. After college, they both went their separate ways- Krista moved back to California and Kevin moved to New York City. Six years went by and Kevin ended up in California for a conference. He reached out to Krista and they hit it off again. The rest is history!

A custom Hayley Paige Dress! But How?

Let's talk about the DRESS! Hayley Paige is a close friend to Kevin and Krista and designed a custom Raegan Gown for Krista fit for the gorgeous garden setting at Franciscan Gardens. The dress was a perfect shade of blush and was absolutely stunning. As Krista's honorary bridesmaid, Hayley was there to help Krista into her dress and ensure everything was perfect for her wedding day.

Sweet Wedding Details

Every element of Kevin and Krista's wedding had personal meaning to them. Their wedding was full of Southwestern details to tie in their initial meeting place (AZ). From the cacti to the menu, there were many little details that were an ode to their story. They also had family style dining to pay tribute to Krista's grandmother who always served everything family style at her house. 

For their ceremony, the couple was married in the beautiful Mission Basilica of San Juan Capistrano by Kevin's childhood priest. After the ceremony, a Scottish bagpiper lead a procession from the church through the town of San Juan Capistrano to the reception venue at Franciscan Gardens. It was quite a sight to see 120 guests parading through town to celebrate the love of Krista & Kevin.
