Kristi and Brad were married at Devils Den State park on June 26. They had a very unique ceremony in mind: to get married standing in the water in front of the spillway/waterfall. Unfortunately we had a very warm dry week and there was only a trickle coming over the spill way. It was still a fun idea, and even without water it made for unique images. The reception was held at the Boars Head Pub in the back of Powerhouse in Fayetteville. And while it is not uncommon for the bride to change outfits for the reception, at this wedding the groom changed his outfit instead – and what an outfit (see the last image below)!

More photo-stitching. I can't seem to stop! I like this one because you see all the cheering guests as Brad carries Kristi out of the water.
I really like this picture. We moved from the dam to get a little greenery in the background.
- When Kristi picked orange as her wedding color, I bet she never thought Brad would embrace it so whole-heartedly!
