Kristen & Seth | Crystal Lake Golf Club Wedding | Mapleville, RI

Kristen and Seth are such wonderful, sweet, and playful people. Capturing their wedding day was equally as fabulous, as it was fun! The two chose to tie the knot in an elegant lakeside wedding ceremony at the Crystal Lake Golf Club in Mapleville, RI. After spending the evening before capturing their rehearsal dinner, we knew their wedding day was going to be one for the books. And, we were right!

The new Mr. and Mrs. Kauffman’s wedding day started with everyone getting ready. When it was time to head to Kristen and Seth’s first look, the girls boarded the trolley they’d rented. Since they only rented one trolley, Kristen sat in the back with her girls and when Seth was brought on board he was blindfolded so he couldn’t see his bride-to-be! It was so funny and it made their first look even more special and unique. After their first look and some portraits, it was time for their ceremony. With a gorgeous backdrop of the lake, Kristen and Seth pledged a lifetime of love and were pronounced man and wife.

Wedding Day Boat Ride

Then, the fun really started! Seth loves to fish, so Kristen and Seth made sure their wedding day timeline included some time for a boat ride around the lake. The guys were able to fish while the bridal party all enjoyed some appetizers, cocktails, and time to themselves to relax. We had a great time along with them on the boat, enjoying the afternoon and the fact that they were married!!! After their boat ride was over, their reception began. Although most receptions are pretty personalized to the couple being married, Seth and Kristen made it even more “them” by enjoying the food they love. Seth wanted a plate of burgers, so that’s what he got! They also had a great time making everyone laugh with their custom Rock Your Booth photo booth setup!

Seth and Kristen, thank you for including us in your special day! We had a great time capturing everything that made your day so fun and memorable. We wish you a lifetime of love and laughter together!!!

Crystal Lake Golf Club Weddings

Crystal Lake Golf Club is a gorgeous option for couples in Mapleville, Rhode Island. This stunning golf course provides the traditional green you expect of a golf course, while delivering a beautiful waterfront ceremony location. Guests or the wedding party can even boat around on the lake (like Seth and Kristen did!). Their indoor reception space is beautiful – and leaves lots of room for your personality to shine through in your decor. Crystal Lake Golf Club wedding days are the perfect way to combine your love of the outdoors and a stylish day inside for the reception. Couples really can have the best of both worlds here!

A Tip for Our Couples…

We’ve said it before, but personalizing your wedding day can go a long way in making it a memorable and special day for you both. Who says you can’t fish on your wedding day? Who says you can’t have what you want for dinner, even if it’s a plate of hamburgers? Whatever it is that makes you two special should be brought into your wedding day. Think outside the box to make your day all about who you are – individually and as a couple. Love fishing? Take a boat out for some portraits or maybe include it in your decor. Have your favorite foods for dinner or have your day catered by the place where you had your first date. Enjoy your wedding day! It should be a day filled of love and special moments for you both!
