I had the pleasure of first meeting Carmen and Simon for their engagement photos and knew their wedding was going to be yet another special day to photograph.

Our day began with portraits of bride, Carmen, and her bridesmaids getting ready after popping champagne, capturing all of the delicate details for their elegant wedding day. Just before getting into her gown, Carmen and I fit in an intimate session in her bridal lingerie capturing those few moments alone. A warm, sunny, September day blessed their outdoor garden ceremony and we spent the afternoon photographing their portraits as a couple and with their bridal party before proceeding to their reception where they danced the night away with their family and friends.

Kellie and Adam were one of many couples who had to navigate planning their wedding during the pandemic, and were forced to re-plan and re-locate their wedding. It all worked out in the end, as their dearest family members were able to attend and bride, Kellie, planned and styled the most beautiful romantic and elegant wedding with no detail missed. From their beautiful invitation suite, silk ribbon, ring boxes, matching bridal robes, pocket squares, and the most immaculate dessert table that Kellie baked herself it was truly a pleasure to capture. Their reception, set in the backyard of a relatives acreage, had soft and romantic floral lined tables with beautiful table settings ready for their guests to dine with at their delicious gourmet burger bar.

My years of experience photographing weddings came in handy as I dissected the timeline to accommodate the rain and our balance of shooting reception details, portraits, and family portraits between the moments that the rain let up, and Kellie and Adam had full trust in me every step of the way and were truly one of the most easy-going couples I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

There was no shortage of gorgeous florals present throughout their wedding by Mel City Floral. With her talent, it is no surprise that bride, Kellie, has started her own event planning service Kellie Lynn Events.
