Formal Portraits/Wedding Party Photos: After the ceremony concluded, the bride and groom along with their wedding party headed to take photos at a nearby garden but the transportation they took was what really brought a unique and fun feel to the entire day. Kristen and Tyler rented a trolley to take them to the gardens and then the Grand Monastery for cocktail hour and their ceremony. While on the trolley, the entire wedding party celebrated with drinks and had music bumping on the stereo. Such a fun and relaxed part of their day, it really made it possible for everyone to take a minute away from all of the bustle of the wedding preparations to enjoy the fact that they got married and got to privately enjoy that feeling with their closest friends!
