I’m trying a little something new with my wedding posts by including images that are larger rather than galleries…feedback? Better or worse? : )
In the mean time, meet Kelsey + Chris…this awesome couple tied the knot on March 31, 2012 at Lakes Chapel and Clubhouse in Lake Park GA. And what an incredible wedding! The rain that poured down at noon disappeared, leaving only the sun, just in time for everything (what a relief!) and allowing the details to shine. And oh the details. Kelsey’s creative touch was apparent everywhere – from the handmade signs, to the table decorations, to the tulle petticoat in her favorite color – purple! Chris brought his own attention to detail and nostalgia by wearing his grandfather’s dog tags, a WWII military medal, and carrying the lovingly inscribed pocket watch that Kelsey had given him the day before.
Because creative photography was a must for this couple, we carved out time before the ceremony for the first look and some fun shots like the swings!, right at sunset (for some of my favorite images from the day!) and then partway through the reception for some really cool night shots. And yes, they even got onto the ground, in a field, in their wedding best, for a few adventurous moments.
As day faded into dusk, the reception site transformed into a fairytale glade of twinkling lights (hand strung by Kelsey and her helpers the day before) giving everything a magical feel. Much dancing (and some cigar smoking) ensued and the sparkler send-off capped the night, ushering Kelsey and Chris forward, together, hand and hand into their future.
Congratulations Kelsey + Chris! It was such a pleasure getting to know (and photograph) you over this last year! May you truly have a happily ever after!
