Just to look at them on the outside you can see their classic look and their timeless style… and when you see them together, you can see their love is just the same. Like something out of an old movie. Sophisticated. Honest. True. As we spent time photographing the day they would become husband and wife, we noticed more and more this same thread weave it’s way through every moment, every detail, and every promise made. From her vintage red lips to the art deco venue, it was reflection of the past to celebrate their next big step into their futures.
Even though she was in the makeup chair, she couldn’t hold back tears of excitement…
The cap sleeves on her gorgeous gown were the perfect touch…
The tropical Monstera leaf was a key design element which created a fantastic backdrop for details as well as a jaw dropping vintage feel for the reception….
Her mom was beaming in the background…
…and Dad couldn’t have been more proud…
Thankfully, I turned around RIGHT before the bride and groom’s first look to capture her mom and dad’s reaction to the moment that was about to happen. I just love this….
They exchanged hand written letters before seeing each other. What an incredible moment and keepsake.
They don’t look real. If I hadn’t been there I wouldn’t have believed these guys weren’t part of a styled shoot!
Such a beautiful bride. Love your style, Kelsey! // Pro-opinion: If you want your dress to be the feature of your wedding day wardrobe (or if you have a beaded neckline or belt), skip the necklace and spend time choosing a fabulous pair of earrings!
The variety of dresses with a serious pop of floral color fit the bridesmaids bubbly personalities to a T!
Vintage. Classy. Timeless! It makes me feel like Ricky Ricardo and Lucy are getting ready to celebrate here! If you are 30 or younger, or unless you are an old soul, you may not catch that reference but it totally makes sense to me….
Kelsey + Eric had a room FULL of guests who were having a ball in our Live Click Photobooth! I couln’t help but run over and grab a few behind the scenes while our team was busy grabbing all the shots for the filmstrips! It was so FUN to watch the bride and groom with their family and friends.
