Kristina and Clayton’s love story started at a Sky High for Kids event, where Kristina was the event lead, and Clayton volunteered. Although they didn’t interact much, fate brought them together a few months later when Kristina decided to try a dating app. It only took 24 hours for the couple to match, and they went on a date soon after. The bride says, “He was my very first and last Bumble date. The rest, as they say, is history.”

After a proposal in Cabo, the couple wed on September 24, 2022, at a hill country resort in San Antonio. The picturesque location was perfect for their special day, and the bride and groom exchanged rings from Shaftel Diamonds, aside a breathtaking altar of baby’s breath and white roses.

Before the reception, Kristina and Clayton had a “first look” of the grand ballroom. They shared a special moment as the band played their first dance song, “This Must Be The Place.” The bride says, “Clayton and I both got emotional taking it all in.”

The festivities continued with a simple but unique color scheme inspired by the tones of an oyster shell. Baby’s breath and warm candlelight decorated the long reception tables, while a couch for the couple served as a focal point of the room during the toasts.

The night ended with a bang as the couple opted for a final dance with all of their guests instead of a traditional send-off. The band surprised them with the song “Don’t Stop Believin’,” and everyone sang and danced along as confetti rained down, creating a perfect ending to the night.

One of the highlights of the wedding was the late-night snack. The bride says, “Because Clayton’s a big pizza lover, at the end of the night, we had branded pizza boxes and Pizza Hut for our guests. They were a huge hit and helped make for some epic photos.”
