I’ve got a thing for pretty things, as any girl would, of course! But my definition of pretty has changed a ton over the years, especially as I continue down this path as a wedding photographer. Naturally it has sparkles and shiny objects you can wear on body parts, but there is also that definition of pretty that makes you feel good. One that you can’t contain in a ring or a cake.
One that makes your heart burst from fingers to toes.
That is what these two are. They are pretty – yes – but pretty in the all-encompassing part of the word. I’m not sure if it is because they are two humans that I just WANT to hang out with, but taking a shot after their engagement session to eating chicken fingers the morning of the wedding to being set up by their dads to that honesty about how awkward it feels to be in front of the camera (I get it!!!) – these two and their pretty warmed my heart.
So wait, back up. You read that correctly. Kelly + Marc were set up by their DADS! And then at the reception those two matchmakers got up and gave a toast, that if I shall remember correctly, ended with singing that infamous matchmaker song 😉 .
But their intimate ceremony at Mohican was one after my own heart. They tied the knot overlooking those beauteous trees and lake, with all their closest friends and family by their side. The dinner was perfectly them with a side of fun. But my favorite of all – their first dance was to Hooked on a Feeling, played a capella by some friends!
Everything about these two and this marriage is pretty freaking fantastic, and I’m ecstatic for their beautiful life together!!
Enjoy some of my faves // xo riss
