What a wedding to go out on! This was my last wedding of 2013 and I couldn’t have planned it better. Everything was perrrrrrrfection!! A huge thank you to my girl Jenny of Jenny Barnes Photography for helping me close out a fabulous 2013!
That dress? Did you watch The Bachelor wedding? Me too!! Her dress was also designed by the talented Monique Lhuillier. I texted Kelly immediately. And those shoes? I could not stop taking pictures of them!!!! Love, love, love!!!
Kelly did a First Look with her dad and mom. Lemme tell ya. Not a dry eye in that room.
I love this one. A fave!
It was a beautiful ceremony. Brandon’s grandfather was a special part of it. I’ve photographed more than a few beautiful churches…but this one was stunning.
MARRIED!! NEWLYWEDS!! WOOT WOOT!!
You can tell a lot about a wedding party from the group hug photo….I’m sure you can tell from this photo that this group was F.U.N. !!!
Girls…you rocked it. You huddled for warmth when you needed it. And you nailed the super cute girl pose when I needed it. Thank you ladies!
My hands down most favorite. Kelly you have the most beautiful smile. Your face glows. I told you that when we took your engagement photos. Well, on your wedding day? There was no containing your shine.
The sun was setting quickly and we needed to be back to The Athletic Club for the cocktail hour. I absolutely looooooove taking reception decor detail shots. I don’t get to do it too often with my time restraints but when you work with Tarah at The Bendora Wedding Gallery, weddings always run on time! So I went crazy taking photographs of the jaw-dropping-awe-inspiring-amaze-fest-decor. It was insanely beautiful. Daphne Ashby of Ashby Floral Boutique outdid herself!
Oh they had a cake AND a donut tower!? Why yes! Yes they did. And you could smell it from the other room. And it was amazing.
Anyone else notice Brandon had an outfit change? I’ve loved Brandon and Kelly from the moment I met them at their photography consultation. But when I found out that this was happening on the day of their wedding…my respect for him went up 200%. Well. Played.
Congratulations you two!!! It was so wonderful to be a part of your special day!! I just love you guys! We wish you the absolute best!! xoxoxo
