Kelsey and Adam are some of the most fun, genuine, caring, down to earth people I’ve ever known. We met at a Starbucks for the first time last February, and hit it off like old friends. I knew the instant they said hello that we’d be a great match, and boy was I right. 🙂 Even their families and friends are fun-loving, welcoming, and kind; I think Dana and I had as much fun at the wedding as everyone else did.
Kelsey and Adam, we wish for you a long, joy-filled adventure together, and we can’t wait to see where you go in life together. Much, much love to you both!!
This is the story of two beautiful people in love – enjoy. (And to view their engagement session, click here.)
I may possibly be obsessed with the cotton-boll boutonnieres. Such a perfect homage to South Carolina, where the cotton fields give us the eternal feeling of snow in a snow-less land.
They delivered their gifts to each other via groomsmen before the ceremony, and boy did they outdo themselves. Kelsey had an entire basket of meaningful gifts for Adam to open, complete with notes like this one to guide him. Adam sent two amazing gifts to Kelsey – the first in a little blue Tiffany’s box (is there any other wedding gift so lovely?!), and the second one a beautiful leather-bound Bible with her new name engraved on it. Yeah, we both cried.
(my amazing assistant Dana is to be thanked for these gorgeous shots of Adam! xoxo)
I can NOT get enough of Kelsey’s gorgeous gown. It makes me want to get married all over again (to the same guy). Um, HELLO.
We try to maintain some semblance of decorum, but groomsmen shots usually end up as dance parties by the end. By the third shot here, we were all singing What Does The Fox Say. But I guess that’s obvious.
Brand new watch from his bride. AND a polka dot bow tie. Be still my heart.
Girrrrrrrrrrrrrl. You are amazing.
I LOVE daddy/daughter first looks. Wow.
Once again, Dana amazes me. She took this entire series of the girls by herself. Posed them and everything. She found amazing light and caught them in all their beauty. SO PROUD.
Not all of Adam’s family was able to be at the wedding, but THANK YOU modern technology for making it possible anyway. I thought this face-timing was brilliant, and really touching. We even got them in a few family portraits after the ceremony.
The whole world was rejoicing and swirling around them afterwards, but as far as Kelsey and Adam knew, they were the only ones in the room.
Three different generations. I love this so much.
Another one of Dana’s beautiful shots.
What DOES the fox say?
Um, GORGEOUS, ladies!
This place is PERFECT for me. I’ve decided I’m moving in.
First fight, or the MOST AMAZING DUET EVER? <—the latter.
I pretty much always adore photobombers. Seriously.
We love you guys. 🙂
