I love searching for and receiving the most recent tattooed brides and tattooed grooms to share with you on Marry Me Ink. Today’s wedding is from Matt Ritscher of New Hope Photography whose work I came across recently on Instagram. Kira and Nathan’s wedding took place at Alvamar Country Club in Lawrence, Kansas and featured lots of cute coral colours.
We met while we were working at a fitness club. Nathan came into the office right after my interview. I was not immediately impressed with him. After getting to know each other at work, he finally asked me to go out with him and some friends one night. We went out and had a great time. We have been together ever since. We were together 8 years before we got married.
The whole atmosphere of the wedding represented us as a couple. It was very relaxed but yet it was a great time. We had a cocktail hour before the wedding which helped the guests loosen up and mingle with each other. At one point I looked into the crowd and saw a good number of people having their drinks during the ceremony. We had never been to a wedding which had that element.
We had a BBQ at the Nathan’s parents for our rehearsal dinner. It was fun because it wasn’t a stuffy sit down dinner. Everybody got to meet and talk and hang out.
Do what you want. Don’t let anybody influence you to do something you are not 100% on. Ask around about all the different businesses to use. Interview possible candidates (DJs, Photographers, Caterers) go with the one you like. Last but not least, try not to stress, it is your day, try and enjoy it.
How fab is Kira & Nathan’s wedding? Thank you to them both and to Matt Ritscher of New Hope Photography for sharing with Marry Me Ink today! Matt is based over in the US but will travel for you wedding and would love to shoot a UK and Europe wedding – Be sure to contact him if you’re still looking for your photographer!
