Welcome to the wedding of Kelsey & Paul. It was laid-back, sweet, dressed-up but not fussy, and full of fun. Kind of like the two of them.
The picture is always more interesting when you know the back story – like this one, where the bride is getting ready to put on her wedding dress, but is on the phone with her dad, helping him hunt for the groom’s wedding ring which she forgot at home (and yes, he found it)! Ever wonder what it looks like from the bride’s perspective?
The first look….This was the first time I’d ever seen a wedding with the mom as the maid of honor. Kelsey and Shelly are really just that close. I could have taken a hundred pictures of them giddy with laughter together on this exciting day. I love this image. You get the feeling that this is what Randy deals with every day. : )When a wedding ceremony starts out with “Mawwage… is what bwings us heaw today”… you know it’s going to be good.
Despite all evidence to the contrary, the wedding ceremony was NOT boring!
Fancy mashed potato bar = awesome!
And how did the bride and groom meet? Kelsey’s mom and Paul were dance partners in “Dancing with the Joplin Stars” (and yes, they won!). So yep, another first. A mother/son-in-law dance to – you guessed it – Thriller!
