The fantastic romantic May 25 wedding of Johnny and Kristal David Turner was full of family tributes and original, personal touches. An artist and graphic designer, Johnny painted Historic Cedarwood on an over-sized canvas for guests to sign instead of a traditional guest book and helped craft a series of cool signs to direct events of the celebration. Table assignments were made with artist brushes dipped in paint to coordinate with table top canvases. Kristal’s father, John Mark, hand crafted a six foot cedar cross for the ceremony altar, and we loved the touching processional of the bride on the arms of both her dad and mom Julie. Four generations were present at this wedding and heirlooms used included grandmothers’ vintage punch bowls, bouquet brooch and silver cutlery for the cake.
Kristal (now a doctor of veterinarian medicine!) and Johnny also have a “family” of critters, including the most adorable pot-bellied pig, Hamilton, who naturally was included in the wedding party. Kristal and Johnny’s signature cocktail was even named “The Hamilton” for an infusion of celebration fun. We are delighted to share the personality and beauty of Kristal and Johnny’s wedding day through these great photos by Kristyn Hogan. Enjoy.
