We are so excited that we get to share Cristen and Matthew’s love story with the rest of the world! This sweet couple had a stunning October wedding and Cristen describes it as the best day of their lives.
Their Love Story
Cristen and Matt met during his last semester at the University of Central Missouri, but they didn’t start dating until two years later! Their relationship official began once she moved back after graduating and the rest is basically history. The couple has a house built, got a puppy, and then they got engaged in August of 2015 on the river (which is their happy place).
What a Beautiful Wedding!
Cristen has always dreamed of an October wedding, so they decided to get married on October 29th, 2016 at the Old Stone Chapel in St. Charles. This day happened to be one of the most important days for Matt as well because it just so happened to be Opening Day of duck season, so he of course agreed with a smile! Now he won’t be able to forget their anniversary either!
Their special day was absolutely beautiful and full of fall colors! Who would have thought it would have ended up being 80 degrees in late October? Cristen looked phenomenal in her slim fitted gown from Allure, which features a fabulous sweetheart neckline and a satin ruched waistband. On the best day of their lives, they laughed and danced the night away! This wonderful wedding was created through all the hard work from the following vendors:
Florist: Schnucks Design Florists
Caterer: The Heart of St. Charles (Old Stone Chapel)
Photographer: Charism Photo – Christina Ahlheim
Band/DJ: The EDGE DJ Productions – Rob Cutler
Hairstylist and/or Makeup Artist: Chic Salon and Boutique - Jenny Young
Thank you so much Cristen and Matthew for allowing all of us at Mia Grace Bridal help you make your wedding a dream come true!
