Still smiling from the awesome time I had celebrating Joe and Kelly with their family and friends! It was a BEAUTIFUL fall day for these two cuties! They shared the sweetest first look just across the street from their new home making it that much more special for the two of them. I love a good first look! It helps ease the nerves and lets you express yourselves to one another in a way you wouldn’t be able to when you are at the alter in front of all of your guests. After Joe let his girl know how INCREDIBLE she looked, I had these two love on each other for a few intimate portraits before we made our way to the church!
Joe’s family is a member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church so it was a no brainer on where they would start their journey! This church is the cutest white church here in Mechanicsville, which was extra convenient! I love a good local wedding celebration! These two had an intimate church ceremony that was beautiful! The light coming through the stained glass that was above them was perfection… almost as if a spotlight was put on them. After the ceremony we had a little bit of fun with the full bridal party before we let Joe and Kelly have a little more alone time together before we got the party started! These two danced their way into their party and the night! Their guests were a hoot on the dance floor! I wobbled my way around with them and had such a good time! The speeches were incredible, and if you don’t already know, speeches are my favorite! We all laughed, cried, danced, and sang our hearts out! It was an emotional day!
And to think that Kelly wanted nothing more than to be friends with Joe at first. Good thing he was persistent and swept her off of her feet because look at the two of them now! Sending another big ole congratulations to the newlyweds and I wish you both nothing but years of happiness! I love you both and am so grateful for you both!
A big shout out to all the vendors who helped bring the day together!
