This past weekend I got to reconnect with some high school friends at Justin and Kelly’s stunning wedding at the Red Lion! It’s always a special part of my job when I get to spend time with people I haven’t seen in years and capture their big moments. These two planned a GORGEOUS day in the rustic venue with amazing flowers and a lot of personal details. They focused on family and spending time with the people they love, and Kelly’s smile and happy tears didn’t stop all day.
Here is a peak at their amazing day!
Kelly had two sets of accessories – one for the first look and reception (boots and sparkly earrings) and awesome strappy wedges with simple pearls for the ceremony. I love that a few touches can totally change the whole effect.
Her dress was stunning
Kelly’s dad is sadly no longer with us but she sewed a piece of his blue tie inside her dress as a tribute
And on her bouquet some of her grandmother’s charms
A first glimpse at her gorgeous self
Down the hall Justin was adding a few finishing touches himself
We headed outside for a private first look
Always one of my favorite parts of the day <3
She added this lace to her dress for her ceremony and removed it for the party. Kelly you looked simply amazing!
Her sister and soon to be sister in law
Kids were a huge part of their day – I always love little ones at weddings because they add a lot of energy and spontaneity!
Time to get married
It was an emotional walk down the aisle with her mom
This venue is awesome – definitely a favorite =)
How sweet are these two sisters and the little one trying to join in?
A few of Kelly’s special students came by to congratulate her
All the amazing flowers were put together by a friend. They were perfect!
A beautiful soft sunset topped off the evening
Inside were more gorgeous details
The new Mr. and Mrs. rocked the floor
Kelly danced with her uncle (who had the best suit!) and Justin with his mom
The band was excellent – live music adds a great vibe!
Soooo happy for you Justin and Kelly! Thank you for letting me spend the day with you – wishing you so much happiness!! xoxo
