Kira and Mike were married at Prallsville Mills in Stockton, N.J. on June 8. They first met in high school, but didn’t start dating until a few years after they graduated. Since they share a love for camping and hiking, in 2011, they drove cross-country together for 42 days. “It was during that trip, at the Grand Canyon, that Mike proposed to me!” Kira said. The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a sage green button-up, gray suit pants, and a cap. “Our first look was such a special moment and made me feel so much less nervous before getting married,” she said. “It did not in any way ruin the moment of first seeing each other as we walked down the aisle.” Bridesmaids wore bright, sunshine yellow dresses and matching TOMS wedges, which were gifts. “I loved my something blue,” Kira said. “I put on a fake tattoo that said, ‘Okay, let’s do this,’ and wore it on my calf. It was fun and non-traditional.” The ceremony was contributed by multiple family and friends — Mike’s uncle played the bagpipes and Kira’s best friend’s father officiated. Guests were escorted to their seats with a photo! “My most favorite detail and project was creating the place cards,” she said. “I decided that any Facebook photo was fair game and searched for my favorite of each guest invited. Then, I uploaded it to an app called ‘Picasa,’ which allowed me to turn the pictures into a polaroid style.” The newlyweds were undecided on where they wanted to go on their honeymoon, so they asked guests to write on a globe where they thought the destination should be. Not a bad idea, right? See the full board here.
