Working with Chris and Kira has been a delight since day one. These two are so much fun to be around; they are goofy with each other, hilarious, and positive. They are nothing but themselves 100% of the time, which includes being so obviously in love with each other that it is honestly too cute to handle. Their wedding was nothing short of a complete blast. Despite a million little things that got in the way, they still managed to have a killer party infused with so many pieces of their personality: Harry Potter, Panic! At the Disco, and a full blown Emo Night playlist (tbh my FAVORITE kind of playlist).

I met up with Chris and Kira on their wedding day at the Valley Regency, where we did some getting ready photos before heading off to their first look somewhere very special to the two of them. Every year, the two have a picnic under the same beautiful tree at Branchbrook Park with the cherry blossoms, and it’s even where Chris proposed (after a very cool scavenger hunt where Kira was convinced they were only celebrating her recent college graduation), so it was only fitting that the two see each other for the first time on their wedding day in this spot. After a first look that took Chris’s breath away, we headed back to Valley Regency for a gift exchange, where Kira surprised him with a whole motorcycle. These two were surprise and special moment after surprise. After their first dance to Panic! At the Disco, their DJ rocked their dance floor with emo and pop punk hits.
