Kristen and Abner shared a special day with family and friends at Mount Ida Farm and Vineyard for their June nuptials. Rolling hills, a serene pond, and a beautiful gazebo served as the perfect backdrop for this joyful wedding. Accented with rich shades of purple, from the bridesmaid dresses, to the floral arrangements, and even the intricate dinner menus, Kristen and Abner’s ceremony was one to remember. We hope you enjoy their wedding as much as we did!
