“When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change, ’cause you’re amazing just the way you are. And when you smile, the whole world stops and stares for a while, ’cause girl you’re amazing just the way you are…”Bruno Mars
Dave and Kristina were supposed to get married back in May in a completely different state. But literally weeks before their rescheduled wedding in October, they ended up changing venues completely and moving their Delaware wedding to the gorgeous Farm at Eagles Ridge in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. We can’t say enough good things about the way this venue has adapted (and often with little notice) to continue serving their many brides and grooms this year. The staff was wonderful to work. with, and truly it was a day worth celebrating!
How they met: “We met in junior year of high school. We sat next to each other in health class.”
How he proposed: “In April of 2018 Dave and I went to look at engagement rings, so I knew it was only a matter of time until he proposed. That August, Dave set up a date night. I was already suspicious, because he does not often set up dates. We were going to go to my favorite restaurant , Schaefers in Chesapeake City and sit outside. When it was supposed to rain on Saturday, he pushed the plans to Friday. I was not in love with the idea of going on Friday, because it had been a really long week, but he insisted and I knew this was going to be the time he proposed. We ate dinner, and then went to go get ice cream at the ice cream shop I used to work at and he would visit me at in high school. After ice cream (I barely ate any, I was so nervous, and I don’t think Dave actually even got any to be honest) he took me over to the water and proposed. He had his photographer friend hiding and she was able to capture some photos of the moment. It was awkward and amazing at the same time and I wouldn’t have changed any part of it!”
What he loves about her: “I love her smile. I love how happy she is when we are out together and how we can be goofy without a care.”
What she loves about him: “Dave is so sweet and kind. He likes to put on this tough exterior sometimes, but he really is the sweetest guy. He is so goofy and funny and he always wears his heart on his sleeve. When I am stressed or feel anxious about something (like planning a COVID wedding), he is able to talk me down. He is my best friend, and I’ve never had a doubt if he was the guy for me.”
