Kelsi and Wade – what a beautiful couple – inside and out. I loved getting to know these two and their family. Even though Kelsi is a gorgeous woman who loves all of the lace, bling and pretties, she is also super down to earth. The bride and groom were both able to roll with the punches all day. They had to find a new musician on the day of the wedding, their getaway car didn’t have any keys, the butterflies for the butterfly release seemed to have gone into some sort of hibernation. But it was all good. Those aren’t the things that matter at the end of the day. What mattered most was that they said, “I do.” in front of their family, friends and God. Oh, and the groom cried as his bride walked down the aisle. That’s always a bonus for me. (Sorry Wade).
They had a beautiful Catholic wedding and then a blowout wedding reception in Kelsi’s parent’s backyard. I love backyard weddings because they’re so much more personal and everyone is a little more free to be themselves. They had a “classy country” theme that I think they struck perfectly. Also, check out the treehouse where they spent their first night together. I really need to get one of those!
Congratulations you two and thank you so much for letting me capture your big day! Also, big thank you to Kim O’Neil for second shooting!
