 I need to preface this by saying this- the very moment that I met Kelly, it was like we were old friends. I knew we were a perfect match. :) As Kelly told me about her very sweet and intimate wedding that she & Ryland were planning, I couldn’t wait to be a part of their day. Small/family weddings sometimes end up being some of my favorites. The hustle and bustle of the day is so minimal– and there is just so much extra time to focus on the REASON for the day in the first place. (Oh, and lots of extra time for bridal formals! ;) ) Speaking of formals- we did hit a little bit of a speed bump as the rain began to pour right after Kelly & Ryland’s wedding ceremony was complete…but that didn’t stop us! We took some formals in the church, and some outdoors with an umbrella… (if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em! right?) By the time we headed over to the DELICIOUS Matthew’s restaurant, the rain had basically let up. We did some formals inside the restaurant as well (hello- it is GORGEOUS in there, and I love a challenge!) & we were able to sneak outside for just a few downtown shots! The night finished up after dinner with some extremely heartfelt speeches, and a few quick dances. Brent and I were SO thankful to be a part of this special celebration… and I am looking forward to photographing Kelly & Ryland again in a few months, as they are now expecting their first little PRINCESS, due around Memorial Day!! xo!

Every now and then I get to sneak a quick photo with my brides! ;)
This one was epic- we were trying to keep cool while stuck in the hotel hallway & locked out of our room! LOL thanks Brent. ;)
