Blush and Rose Gold Summer Wedding at Appeldoorn’s Sunset Bay Resort

Krista and Noah's event featured carefully thrifted pieces and peonies flown in from Alaska.

Krista Slusar-Mrazek and Noah Walz met while working together during college. After dating for a couple of years, Noah told Krista he wanted to show her a lakeside mansion in Alexandria before their dinner plans. As they walked to the end of the dock to get a better view, he shared an extensive history about the house — which he had made up, to buy time before dropping to one knee to propose, followed by a surprise (to Krista) engagement celebration with both families. Their summer wedding was well attended by family and friends, including a mutual friend who acted as “flower man” before Krista walked down the aisle accompanied by her grandma’s best friend's singing. The couple chose a palette of blush and rose gold featuring pink Depression glass pieces that Krista’s family had thrifted over the years, and peonies flown in from Alaska. The night ended with divine desserts, lit by a neon sign of the newlyweds’ last name.
