High school sweethearts Christina and Rosti are officially married! The two met each other while they were seniors in high school and after almost 9 years together, Rosti popped the question while they were in St. Lucia! After the two were engaged, they began to plan an intimate wedding at the Grain House at the Olde Mill Inn! You might remember this couple from their winter engagement session at Allaire State Park where they included their pup Frankie.
For their wedding, Christina and Rosti chose the Grain House at the Olde Mill Inn because of the beautiful old world charm and intimate setting the venue provides. Christina and Rosti took kept the color palette for their wedding simple and elegant and it was a perfect choice for their summer day – we love the blush and navy combination! I loved that they got ready right on site – Christina in the bridal suite at the Grain House and Rosti just a few steps away at the Olde Mill Inn. This made it so easy for their wedding parties and everyone was so relaxed all morning.
When it came time for their first look, Christina and Rosti saw each other for the first time in the gardens of the Grain House and it was so sweet. There was so much emotion and I could tell these two just couldn’t wait to be married already! We then headed to Cross Estate Gardens with their bridal parties for their wedding portraits and had the lushest garden to work with! It seemed like all the flowers there were in bloom and it made the prettiest backdrop for their photos.
Once back at the Grain House, Christina and Rosti tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony that combined both their cultural backgrounds. It was so nice to see them incorporate traditions that both their families would appreciate. My favorite part was the big smiles after the smashing of the glass and the joyful recessional that followed as the two newlyweds made their way to their wedding celebration.
Christina and Rosti, what a beautiful wedding day you had! Congratulations and best wishes for a joyful marriage full of deep love and good health. Enjoy this preview of your wedding day!
