What a day. These two high-school sweet-hearts were married on their family property in Currumbin Valley with close friends — they’d all gathered under Chris’ grandfathers tree to watch them tie the knot and cheer on. There was Jack Johnson playing, lots of tears and some of the best dancing to be had — No, seriously. There was a conga line …. ya better believe it.

The night wasn’t all fun and games, though. There was a brief incident that haulted all fun and friends watched on with baited breath …. however momentarily, though. In true C&K form, they shrugged and continued partying. Oh, the incident. Well, the sparkler exit that they planned went a little haywire and a flaming fire-ball decided to join in on the fun — No, seriously. Flaming fireball.

For evidence, see below.

Thank-you to Chris and Kristine. Every single interaction I had with you two, from emails to your engagement session, up until midnight on your wedding day, all I saw from you both was complete and utter love for each other. It’s something so amazing to see, especially after 10 years together. I hope that when I get married that 10 years on, I love as deeply as you two clearly do. You’re amazing.
