Kellie & Dean are my kind of people! They light up a room with their presence and infectious personalities. Simply put: You want to be their best friend and follow them around like a lost puppy because you know if they are doing it, it must be Ah-Mazing! I was so completely honored to be invited to their wedding reception. When I questioned the invite to such an intimate dinner, Dean said, “It’s important to us that you get to know our friends and family.” They saw me for who I wanted to be for them, and all my couples…a friend, not just vendor at their wedding. That was seriously the nicest gesture I had ever received & I will always cherish it.
They put so much love into every last detail of their wedding…and by love I mean blood, sweat and maybe even tears as they handmade all of the creative vignettes. They wanted to create a welcoming and warm environment for their guests which was beautifully executed with the handmade freestanding doors for Kellie’s grand entrance. Her entrance was spectacular, but I must say it was equally matched when she got carried through them at the end of the ceremony by her new husband! At the end of the aisle was a mantle decorated with flowers, crates and candles. You felt as if you were part of their home and family as you watched these two say their vows. Throughout the property they continued the rustic homespun feel with a mint green bicycle displaying homemade jam, a mint green wheel barrel filled with beverages, and the cakes elegantly situated on top of vintage mint green tables. The ambiance was perfect and I dove head first into it’s welcoming arms. It was like a good movie that I never wanted to end…and like all good movies, there were happy tears and lots of laughter. Congrats Kellie & Dean!
and this is about where I started to cry…& I’m not ashamed cuz there wasn’t a dry eye anywhere to be seen!
Out of the blue Dean jumps behind Kellie as she is showing me her garters! Hilarious!
This is really a photo, not a dream come true…galloping horses and one of each color and pattern!? It’s like a fairytale!
Grilled Cheese Sandwich bites served on a tray?!? YES PLEASE!
The best send off ever! High fives all around and a dog pile!
