An Original, Outdoor Wedding In Guatemala – Kris & Irwin

Irwin & Kris - Daniel Lopez Perez - Wedding Photographer Guatemala - 060

Today’s tattooed bride on Marry Me Ink has gorgeous inkings including Maleficent and her raven Diablo. Kris married Irwin at their friends’ in San Jose Pinula, Guatemala and had the awesome Daniel Lopez Perez Photography to capture the moments of their day.

Irwin and I met each other at Michigan State University. He was using a piece of equipment in the hospital where I was working and when I walked by, he said “Hello Kristine.”  I was instantly annoyed because – How did he know my name? When I asked, he said, “Because you’re wearing a name tag.”  I felt so silly but I didn’t care because he was handsome and I loved his smile.  We hit it off, went out for coffee and eventually got married.

We’re not traditional at all so the hell with having a wedding inside a church.  I love Maleficent (hence the tattoos), so I walked down the aisle to Lana Del Ray’s “Once Upon a Dream.”  After our good friend and minister Jason announced us as husband and wife, we walked down the aisle to “The Throne Room” song played at the end of Episode IV of Star Wars.  The orchestral music captured the moment of us uniting as a couple and we felt like we just saved the Republic.  It was perfect.

I did partake in making some arts and crafts.  I mainly did it as a protest to how much wedding decorations cost in general.  So I painted and created our cake topper along with a papel picado banner of our names.  Of course, our cake topper wouldn’t have been complete without our beloved Rottweiler, Monkey.

We do not have any couple tattoos but we did get inked by the same tattoo artist, James Hurley in Lansing, Michigan.  Irwin’s tattoo is a Mayan inspired Jaguar metamorphosing into a Quetzal while my chest tattoo is Maleficent’s raven, Diablo perched on her staff enveloped by green smoke.

Everything was immaculate and there was so much going on, but I remember holding Irwin’s hands under the alter and him telling me I look beautiful. That was my personal highlight.

I understand why people elope but try not to psyche yourself out, it’s just a wedding, what matters is your marriage.
