kelly and mike's wedding

Kelly and Mike got married last weekend in almost South Carolina. I think I could have run to the border from their reception but i wouldn't have--it was too fun! I had the opportunity to join a wonderful married couple who just happen to be tag team photographers: Diana and Dustin of Bella Loren Photography, to do Kelly and Mike's wedding. It is so nice to work with other photographers and creative minds. Kelly and Mike were so easy going and their friends and family were so welcoming...they have such a great story...get ready for it... 

Kelly's parents opened their home to all of the pre-ceremony events so there were people coming in and out all day to get their pictures taken on the golf course in their backyard...all of it was wonderful except the sweat dripping off of all of our faces. it was toasty...but NO RAIN! 

kelly's dad is above in the reflection of the "bad rolls royce." He got it as a surprise for her and he was so excited about it...

right after this Kelly kept saying..."we did it...i'm married!" i was loving it.

above are some of my favorites from the day...i think it was the time of day [beautiful sun light] and the fact that everyone feels so much more relaxed after the ceremony is over.  

above: sam was the polaroid boy...they did this instead of a guestbook so he had the demanding job of making sure he photgraphed every person at the wedding so i felt like it was pretty important that i documented him documenting! ok...then "our story" was posted outside of the reception but i'm sure everyone there already knew it...if you look above you will see towards the bottom of the picture on the right "did we really meet on the highway?" yes, they did! they were driving down the highway and wrote their phone numbers to each other and held them up in the window and they talked on the phone while on the road...then they found out they were going to the same place. that's how they started dating! crazy! i love it!

kelly and mike had these little envelopes on the table that said lucky in love and when you opened it up there was a penny and a scratch off lotto ticket...brilliant...

 father daughter love...

 

 

 

 

What a great day! Congratulations you two! Thanks for being so wonderful to work with!
