Kristina and Jon in Roanoke, VA

What a FANTASTIC thanksgiving weekend I had at the wedding of Jon Hillman and Kristina Montuori in Roanoke, VA. Jon and Kristina met playing soccer at UNC-Asheville (They were both #9 and played the same position!!) and were married in Kristina's hometown of Roanoke, VA this past Saturday, Nov. 27th. 

Here are a few highlights from this love-filled wedding day:  

Saturday morning, while Kristina was getting ready for her wedding day, she got a letter from Jon (above and below). This was such a sweet moment! 

In the Italian tradition, Kristina's family lined up outside her house as she headed off to the church, tossing flower petals and coins at her for luck (above).  

St. Andrew's Catholic Church in downtown Roanoke is SO beautiful!  

Jon and Kristina exit the church (above) and head straight into their stretch hummer (below)

The Limo took myself and the wedding party around Roanoke for some photos! This wedding party was so much fun!! 

"With our powers combined...." (above)

Jon gave his groomsmen the coolest gift: Custom superhero cufflinks! Jon's superhero identity is Superman!  

We made a stop at the grocery store (below) for more champagne and a little fun!  

Jon and Kristina's reception took place at the Hotel Roanoke and it was so beautiful there! 

Below, the couple shares their first dance. I've included a lot of first dance photos because I really though they were just so cute dancing together!! You can tell how much they really love each other!  

Jon, you really should feel like a superman right now! (above) 

This is the best garter catch I've ever seen!!! (below) 

Kristina and Jon shared the sweetest last dance of the night I've ever seen! It made my eyes swell to watch Jon wipe Kristina's sweet tears.  There is so much love between these two! 

Thanks so much to Kristina and Jon for allowing me to be a part of their special day! Another big thanks to Kate Monroe, who shot along side me on Saturday. Thanks so much Kate!

I also posted a few of Kristina's Bridal Portraits on my blog, check them out! 

Below, Kristina's family gave wedding guests a very special wedding gift: special wine from their own vineyard.
