“When one door opens…”
Tonight I am going to end on a note that is still very near, dear and personal to my heart.
I will forever remember this day beyond the fact that it was epic and grand. That it was seamless and well planned. That it was under the design and direction of a talented planner. And that it was all under the umbrella of a beautiful wedding planning company that I once owned, Weddings and the City (WATC).
It is so hard to believe that ten years ago that little baby was born. My former partner (CeCe Hampton) and I were so hungry to be part of this great big wedding world. With an open heart, willingness to take a risk and giant leap of faith we literally went door-to-door as social media had yet to become the phenomenon that it is today.
We grew fast, wildfire fast.
There were lots of highs (a few lows), but ultimately the time came when it was time to close this chapter in my life and remember it as a beautiful story. The friendships that I made through WATC, the lessons that I learned, the brides that we had the privilege of working with and the amazing contacts that were made both internationally and nationally all helped shape and mold me into the business owner that I am today. There is not one single solitary thing that I would change.
Including…going out with a bang!
Ashely and Alex were incredibly laid back and knew that they wanted their big day spent with the absolute closest people to them. Mission accomplished.
Please enjoy this moment in time that will not only forever resonate in my heart, but in the hearts of our very last Weddings and the City clients…the sweetest couple!
Thank you to the wedding professionals that I still adore working along side of… Steve Michael, Crown Alley Films, Jami Svay, The Place for Flowers, Best Impressions Catering, Split Second Sounds, Jill Delmastro and Rose Limos.

Words from the bride…
“My experience with Kristin Vinning was fantastic! She always had my best interest at heart and spent as much time as she needed to make sure the photography was perfect. Not only is Kristin well organized, and a splendid perfectionist, she is above all super sweet and relatable which makes you feel comfortable and be yourself. Any time I see or hear someone searching for wedding photographers or just a photographer in general I always recommend Kristin Vinning Photography, she is the best! “
